We are a family of believers celebrating life and hope in Christ Jesus.  We are fully committed to our mission of "Making, Maturing and Mobilizing Disciples to Reach All Generations  for Jesus Christ." To carry out this mission our vision is to focus on loving and caring for families in our church and community. As children of God, adopted into His family by grace and through faith in Jesus,we live with the certainty of His love, forgiveness of our sins, and the hope of eternal life in heaven.  What God has given us, we want to boldly give to others by caring for their spiritual, physical and emotional needs and sharing with them the Good News of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. As we care and share, we pray that the Holy Spirit will use us to be salt and light to the people of our community. We believe that through Making, Maturing and Mobilizing Disciples, parents, single parents, grandparents raising grandchildren and foster parents will be equipped to be the primary shapers of faith and life for their children.  We will do this by building personal relationships with families in our community and bydeveloping a process to strengthen families with resources and skills for parenting and marriage.  Through this process we will create a culture of health and hope in Christ for the following:

  • Create a "Family Friendly" culture in our church family of First Lutheran.

  • Provide educational opportunities in the areas of marriage, parenting and finances.

  • Continue to provide support for the Cass County Baby Pantry.

  • Support, implement and maintain Stephen Ministry for the church and community.

  • Create and implement support and resources for parents, single parents, grandparents raising grandchildren and foster parents.

  • Explore and support further opportunities to serve the community through the Plattsmouth Ministerial group.

  • Plan, create and provide for "cradle to grave discipleship" lifestyles and training.

  • Consider calling a part-time or full-time Family Life Minister from one of our Synodical schools to serve in the area of children, youth and family life ministry.
