Christian Assistance Program (CAP)

During the month of September, CAP will be collecting peanut butter and jelly.

A basket is located at the bottom of the sanctuary steps to collect donations. You can donate cash in honor or in remembrance of someone. There are cards on the bookcase in the Fellowship Hall to complete and mail to our CAP address, 1239 Murray Rd., Odenton, MD 21113. Letters are sent out to the recipients or their families acknowledging these gifts.

The Reformation Experience

This October, the 500th anniversary of the Reformation will be celebrated. Remember Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church doors in Wittenberg, Germany.

Come to First Lutheran on October 21, 2017 and step back 500 years in history to experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of the Reformation. Along the way, you will meet some of the individuals who played a role in transforming the Church and the world.

If you are interested in helping with this endeavor, please contact Diane Jaeger at
