We Are A Vibrant & Nurturing Faith Community

inviting others to experience the Grace of God

Welcome to First Lutheran Church, a congregation that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. This confidence, born of our experience of the Good News of Jesus Christ, gives us freedom and courage to boldly participate in what God is up to in our world today.
Join us — regardless of your life journey with its complexities and questions. Your unique story adds to the richness of the larger story that makes up the First Lutheran Church family. There is a place for you here!
Our office hours are Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Pastor’s office hours are Monday – Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  We recommend that you call ahead to schedule appointments with Pastor Keith.
Our lower level meeting spaces are available for congregational groups of 20 or less.  Please call the church office to schedule your meeting and receive group meeting instructions.
Join us for live worship Sundays, at 9:00 a.m., observing social distancing and other safety measures.  We also offer on-line worship each week for those not able to join us in the sanctuary. Links to the recorded services are posted on this page each Saturday evening for you to watch at your convenience.
