What to expect on
The first visit to any new community means encountering the new, the different or the unexpected. Whether you are a lifelong Lutheran or have never set foot in a Lutheran church before, we want you to be comfortable.
With much anticipation, we have resumed our Sunday worship services at 8:15 am and 10:45 am. Attendance is limited to 25% of capacity, or about 80 people in the Sanctuary. We have additional seating available in the Activity Center, when needed, and we ask you to register online in advance to help us plan. Our South Sudanese congreation is also gathering for their Nuer language service in the Chapel at Noon on Sundays. We have also resumed our Saturday evening services at 5:30 pm which will be in the Sanctuary to allow us to maintain distance between households and take advantage of the newly installed air handling system.
We will continue to require everyone in the building to wear a mask properly and to maintain at least 6 feet distance from people not part of their own household.
We also know that many people are not yet ready to return in person. Each person and each family will make the decisions that are best for them. So, we will continue to livestream the 8:15 am Sunday morning service on our Facebook page with a recording available to watch on-demand on our Livestream web page by 11:00 am.
Welcome to worship at First Lutheran Church!
Liturgy is important to our worship because it stays true to our Lutheran tradition and connects us with Christians from around the world.
Music is an essential part of our worship as it prepares us to hear the reading of scripture and a sermon of encouragement.
We invite everyone to share in Communion with us at the conclusion of our in-person worship services. Communion is offered following current COVID-19 safety protocol. We also encourage at-home communion for those participating in our livestream worship service.
We look forward to the time when we can safely host a coffee and fellowship time on Sunday mornings. It is a wonderful time to mingle, meet new people and catch up with each other.
Currently, our Sunday morning learning opportunities are held virtually on Zoom. Visit our online calendar to see what is being offered that interests you. We would love to have you join us! Call our office for details on how you can become involved.
Children are invited and welcomed to attend worship service so families may participate in worship together. We love sharing our pews with children of all ages because ALL are beloved children of God.
