Dear Friends of First,
Greetings and Welcome in the Name of Jesus Christ and the Community of First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Brockton, MA.
We are a Lutheran church community in the Brockton area that welcomes you, your family, and friends into our diverse community. We are an historic community of Lutheran Christians who house other worshiping communities, twelve-step groups, a food pantry, and YMCA transitional programs for young adults. We have excellent ministerial opportunities for all ages from Bible Studies to Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. Evangelical means “messenger.”
First Evangelical Lutheran Church’s message to you is WELCOME.

Are you on our list for Constant Contact, one of the places you can hook up with the Sunday bulletin for Facebook Live church?

So, today was this this week's amazing food delivery for Brockton first responders amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Your gifts made it possible for our FELC team to provide meals for 185 people today---wow! Meals went to the Brockton Visiting Nurses Association and several departments at Signature Healthcare, along with our notes and gratitude for their tireless service amidst the pandemic. Your gifts for this important work have been amazing. Each meal costs $6 to provide. This past week we received some large gifts and some small enough simply to provide one meal. But, it all came together and added up to us being able to make this huge impact! Next week, we need about $700 to provide meals for yet another big group of first responders already on our list. Can you and/or your family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers help once more? Perhaps you could consider making a gift to honor a graduate, remember a loved one who has died, or recognize a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion. You can make a gift at firstevlutheran.org or snail mail a check to the church. Please help us to continue to honor these life-giving servants in our midst! Post up any questions or ideas here or send us a PM. For all you do to make a real difference in our community, thank you! ... See MoreSee Less

Who might you enlist from among your family, neighbors, or friends to join in and help? This is a big, important effort and we need everyone all-in to help fill this enormous support function during the current crisis.Talk about it, pray over it, follow this link to share your gifts, and feel free to share here what you decided to do and why.
