Growing in Faith

Faith Formation for All Ages

Sunday School isn't just for kids!  At First Lutheran we are always about growing, learning, exploring, and expanding our view of God.  Our Sunday Morning Learning time for adults features a rotation of topics that include Christian History, devotional book studies, and presentations about where our faith and life intersect like mission work and community outreach. Join us Sundays at 10:10 a.m. in the Luther Fellowship Center in the lower level.

  • Feb. 11 – Marriage Class Introduction

    Though unconditional love is promised at weddings, it is rarely practiced in real life. As a result, romantic hopes often fade into a disappointment at home. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. Whether your marriage is hanging by a thread or healthy and strong, this class will challenge spouses to understand and practice unconditional love. 
    10:10 a.m. in Room 207 on the Top Level.  RSVP Here

  • Growing Young in Our Context

    Join us at 10:10 a.m. Sunday, May 19 as we wrap up the study, and begin to craft a plan for action to help First Lutheran Grow Young.
