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!
We normally meet for worship, fellowship and education each Sunday morning beginning at 9:00. We look forward to resuming those regular Sunday gatherings when we can safely do so. For now, “while the building is closed, the church is still open,” as our ministries continue in various ways.

We are currently worshiping using on-line services which are posted to this page each week.  Join us here in worship.

As our city eases restrictions on public gatherings, our Church Council is working on a timeline for re-opening for worship and other meetings, asking not just the question “when” but also “why” and “how.” The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is preparing guidelines that our council will use in drafting our own plans.

Watch here for updates.
