We give because God gives to us first – love, forgiveness, mercy, healing and new life through Christ.

  • We give so that others may experience God’s love firsthand and to improve the quality of life for the whole community in the Lodi, Dane, and Lake Wisconsin areas.
  • We give and lives are changed for good through the collective generosity that funds the ministries and initiatives of First Lutheran Church.
  • When you give, you exercise your faith in Christ, love of God and joy in serving others.

Basic Biblical Foundations for Giving.

Ways to Give. Would you like to help First Lutheran Church serve its mission, to bring people into a relationship with Jesus Christ and grow in the Christian faith? If so, here are some ways for you to help.

  1. Electronic Online Giving. A convenient and secure way to provide consistent financial support to our church. Electronic donations can be made by checking, savings, credit card or debit card. This safe and flexible option is the simplest way to give. This is a flexible giving option that allows you to set up monthly or bimonthly gifts to First Lutheran Church. If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. Even when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, the ministries of FLC will continue to receive your contributions on an uninterrupted basis. For this option, click the give button below:

  1. Use your bank’s bill pay feature. You can utilize your bank’s bill pay service to have checks automatically cut and mailed to First Lutheran Church: First Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 65, Lodi, WI 53555.
  2. MAIL-IN: First Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 65, Lodi, WI 53555.
  3. Give at the weekend worship services at First Lutheran Church. You can give using the envelopes found in the pew racks or from your personal box of giving envelopes for the year. Please send a request for giving envelopes to bethechurch.lodi@me.com with your full name, main phone and email contact, and mailing address. Checks can be made payable to First Lutheran Church.
  4. Stock Transfers: Some prefer to contribute to First Lutheran by way of the transfer of stock shares. By gifting stock to the church, capital gains taxes may be avoided. Please contact the church office for more information.
  5. Real Estate or vehicles: The church is capable of receiving gifts of property, such as real estate or vehicles. Such assets will likely be sold and the proceeds will be dedicated to the church’s ministry. Again, please contact the church office for more information.

Giving to First Lutheran’s long term needs:

First Lutheran Church Endowment: First Lutheran Church is blessed with a separately incorporated foundation which operates as an independent extension of the church. It receives gifts of all kinds, which are held in an endowment fund and managed carefully and professionally. Over the course of time, the fund has grown while, at the same time, substantial amounts have been disbursed to support missions and unique needs not anticipated by the church’s annual budget.
