First Lutheran is a gathering place for people from across the region. Our welcome begins with the affirmation that each person is a child of God by grace. God’s love embraces the wide diversity of people in our community: diversity of race, class, ability, social background, sexuality, as well as diversity of personal and political viewpoint. We’re a people with a Christ centered heart, and our shared identity in Christ is bigger than whatever differences we might bring. There is a place for you!
First Lutheran is one of nearly 9,000 Lutheran Christian congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), linking with churches, colleges, and faith institutions across America.
