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

-Fall Worship Focus-

 Enter In: Baptism

This 8-week series explores the meaning behind the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, and God's grace it brings to us.

ENTER In Small Groups

Baptism is not an end in itself, but the beginning of a new life in Christ.
It always points beyond itself to celebrate God's grace and covenant faithfulness.

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.
