First Lutheran would like to invite you and your congregations to a special presentation.


Jesus’ Last Supper was actually a Jewish Passover. Vladimir Mitnitsky of Jews for Jesus will re-create the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation called “Christ in the Passover” at First Lutheran Church on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 7:00 pm.

Vladimir Mitnitsky will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. He will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.

Jews for Jesus has presented “Christ in the Passover” at over 38,000 churches. It has been enthusiastically received by Christians who appreciate learning more about the Jewish backgrounds of their faith.

Moishe Rosen, who founded Jews for Jesus in 1973, has also co-written the book, Christ in the Passover, with his wife, Ceil. This seminal work includes a look at Passover in ancient times and how it is practiced today. It will be available after the presentation. Also available will be a DVD of the Christ in the Passover presentation with David Brickner, the executive director of Jews for Jesus, officiating.

Brickner, a fifth-generation Jewish believer in Jesus, succeeded Rosen as Executive Director in 1996. Brickner has kept Jews for Jesus on the cutting edge as the ministry has expanded and established branches in eleven countries, including the United States, Brazil, Israel, Russia, France, and South Africa. “We exist to make the Messiahship of Jesus an unavoidable issue to our Jewish people worldwide,” Brickner states. “There are still a few that haven’t heard of us!”

Vladimir Mitnitsky will be happy to answer questions after the presentation. Call (712) 774-5787 or visit for more information. There is no admission charge.

News From Little Lambs April 2019

Our school year is almost to a close.  The four year olds have been focusing on spelling their names.  They’ve also been learning about building things.  They have also been focusing on the letters G, F, N, and P.  In April, they will go swimming one last time.  We will go on a field trip to the Atlantic Public Library in April as well.

The three year olds have been reviewing colors and shapes.  We’ve also been working on counting.  Some of our three year olds can get up to 15. We have been learning about spring and what we see during spring.  For St. Patrick’s Day, leprechauns came and visited our Preschooler’s bathroom, went potty in our toilets, and left boot prints. Soon we will start focusing on Easter.  If any church members would like to volunteer, they would be more than welcome to visit our classroom.

On April 14th, Little Lambs Preschool is having an open house from 2:00 pm-4:00 pm.  Anyone who wants to come is welcome to come.  The open house is in celebration of Little Lambs Preschool’s 40th Anniversary.

News From Kids Come First- April 2019

There are so many new changes happening with our daycare.  We now have security cameras in the classrooms.  That will help with documentation and such.  We have also welcomed some new friends into our program.  Leprechauns visited our Daycare and left a whole bunch of footprints everywhere.  Our kids had fun trying to find the leprechaun’s hiding spot.  Also, Ms. Alice’s office has changed a bit.  The office has been rearranged to streamline the use of the office, and make it easier for Ms. Alice to work.
