Camp Fire Support

Thank you for your interest in helping evacuees of the Camp Fire in Paradise. We are working with the Glenn County Office of Emergency Services to help facilitate donations. Checks made to First Lutheran, noted with "Camp Fire" will go 100% towards needed gift cards for gas and food at this time. You may also donate online through the button below. To donate, please create a donation profile, and all donations through credit or debit will also go to support fire victims.


Thank you again, and my God bless your gifts at this time.

Giving Locally.

At First we are serious about serving our neighbor in love, according to the teachings of Matthew 25: "As you did it to the least of these, so you did it to me." We host and support the nearly dozen ministries making a real difference for the people at need in Orland. Gifts to First enable us to do the work that God has called us to in our local community. 


We have specific ministries we support, as well as our own initiatives that we spend your generous donations on. If you would like to have a list of these specific ministries so you can know exactly where your contributions are going to, please feel free to click the link below and request more information.

Giving Globally.

When Jesus commissioned his disciples before His ascension, He said, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."


At First, we take this command of making disciples in all nations seriously, which leads us to support the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, which support over 9,000 congregations in America and many missionaries abroad. Through the ELCA we make a difference for Christ the whole world round.
