First Lutheran invites the public to Global Festival of Faith, a Family Celebration of Mission

By Paula Tsufis FLC Public Relations Ministry Team Member
Come to First Lutheran’s Global Festival of Faith, a Family Celebration of Mission on Saturday, Jan. 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be served and a children’s program as well as a nursery will also be provided. The church is located at 1100 E. Superior St.

This year’s global festival is for the whole family and will feature ministries in Malaysia, Russia, Pakistan, Cameroon and El Salvador. While adults listen to an inspiring program of the challenges and joys of spreading God’s word globally, the children will explore the music, crafts, stories and games from our mission partner countries.

The keynote speaker will be Heidi Quam on staff with the World Mission Prayer League. Heidi will share her three-month experience in Taliban country with First Lutheran medical missionary, Dr. Elenn Elness.

Reservations are not required; however, a phone call or email would be appreciated to plan for meals and child care. Note: Children must be accompanied by an adult attending the program. For additional information and the full festival program go to, call (218) 728-3668 or email
