Each person is a unique creation of God and, through grace, is a child of God. The people of First Lutheran Church welcome all because God welcomes all, without regard for race or culture, sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status, physical or mental challenges, imprisonment, addictions, socio-economic circumstances, or anything else that too often divides us. First Lutheran Church is a spiritual community that celebrates the gifts of God that can empower us to engage in the struggles of life, to care for each other, and to serve Christ where we work and live. Our unity is in Christ.
If you are seeking, needing or are curious about being part of a faith community that truly welcomes all, we invite you to explore First Lutheran Church. Our Welcome Statement above says it all, but we also know that actions speak louder than words.
So, come. Experience our welcome for yourself. Join us for worship at 5:30 PM on Saturdays or 8:15 and 10:45 AM on Sundays. Better yet, join us for our First Lutheran 101 sessions on February 11 and 18 from 9:30-10:30 AM to learn more about what First has to offer you and to explore how our faith community can become your faith community, too! Meet other interested newcomers, staff and members. Childcare will be available during the sessions in our nursery. We would love to have you! Let us know you are coming with your online RSVP so we can be ready for you! If you choose to join First Lutheran, new members will be officially received at worship services on Sunday, March 3.
At First Lutheran, we are a community of disciples of Jesus Christ working for the transformation of the world. Throughout our history, we have remained committed to drawing on our Lutheran (ELCA) tradition of using meaningful worship, content-rich learning and warm hospitality to care well for our congregation, the surrounding community and the world.
