what people are saying...

about being a part of our community of faith

“I like that First Lutheran engages people where they are and provides many opportunities to be part of the broader church community.” – Ryan Murphy

Stewardship 2023

As we look toward plans for 2024, we celebrate the ways God has multiplied our ministries this fall.

Let God Multiply your Gifts


There is a place for all. Everyone matters. 
No Exceptions.

Here at First Lutheran, we take the journey of of faith together, and we discover more, together.
During the coming year, we will be incorporating this theme of discovering more: together — through the website, signage, and how we present the message of Christ to those seeking a church home. We will also incorporate this theme into the worship life for the program year, beginning with stories of discovery from the Old Testament.
