The History and Archives Committee has as its responsibility the location, preservation, and organization of written documents, photographs, and other exhibits of historical interest and significance to the life of First Lutheran Church.

The Stewardship Committee is charged with encouraging and promoting generous support for the work of the Church, support which makes wise use of the time, talents, and financial gifts of our members. The Committee also promotes planned giving and perpetual stewardship.

The Worship Committee strives to insure that the liturgical life of the congregation is faithful to the witness of the historical, evangelical-catholic tradition of the Church. The Committee also oversees the music ministry of the parish and seeks to promote the active involvement of the laity in worship leadership.
