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!

Forerunners and messengers advance the advent of our God. While John the baptizer’s voice in the wilderness may be the principal focus of the day, Malachi’s prophecy could as easily herald the coming Christ as forerunner of the Lord of hosts. Finally all the baptized are called to participate in the sharing of the gospel. In so doing we prepare the way for the coming of Jesus and assist all people in capturing a vision of the “salvation of God.”
