Whether you are new in town or have lived here your whole life, we at First Evangelical Lutheran Church welcome you to worship with us as we celebrate the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We consider it a privilege to open our doors and hearts to you. Our church has much to offer to those who are seeking forgiveness, acceptance, and strength for living in Jesus Christ.
If you have no church home, First Evangelical Lutheran Church invites you and your family to join us in Christian worship and fellowship.
10:30 AM Worship Service (w/Communion) in the Church Sanctuary. In-person services resumed at the end of July 2020. We request you either register online or sign the welcome book located in the pew on Sunday morning.
10:30 AM Online Worship Service. See our YouTube page for previous services (click the Live tab to see the most recent recordings) and a link to this week’s service. Online services have a few minute countdown before the service begins.
9:00 AM Education Hour has resumed. We are offering a multigenerational Sunday School class in the Fellowship Hall. All ages are invited to attend.
Nursery care is currently not available, but the Nursery room (on the left side at the bottom of the stairs just after you enter the church) is available if parents need some quiet time with their children.
Each Sunday we celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Instituted by Jesus himself, it is also known as the Eucharist (Greek for “thanksgiving”), the Sacrament (Latin for “a consecrating”) of the Altar, and Holy Communion (denoting mutual fellowship and sharing). In this shared meal, our Lord Jesus Christ is present in his body and blood for the forgiveness of our sins. As he lives and is present within us he makes himself known to the world through us. Therefore he welcomes to his table those who repent of sin and trust in him as Savior. This is the proclamation of faith confessed at this altar.
Those who are not receiving the body and blood of Christ but wish to receive a blessing are also invited to come forward. Simply bow your head and cross your arms over your chest to indicate to the pastor that a blessing is desired.
Coffee and snacks, when available, are offered in the Fellowship Hall from 10 AM to 10:30 AM.
