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.
Upon the recommendation of our synod bishop and in response to the number of COVID-19 cases in the St. Joseph area, the congregation council has voted to suspend in-person worship at First Lutheran until further notice.  
The  congregation council will monitor community indicators to determine when in-person worship will resume.  Decisions to resume in-person worship will be posted here and on the church’s Facebook page.
We continue to offer on-line worship.  Scroll down on this page to find links to each service. These are posted each Saturday evening for you to watch at your convenience. 
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.
The Sudanese Worshiping Community has suspended in-person worship until further notice as well.  The Sudanese congregation’s leadership will continue to monitor community indicators to determine when in-person worship will resume.  Watch here for updates.
