More than a tradition

Living with identity, value and purpose


Gifts of Hope - Giving with a Cause

December 2 & 3, 2017


Loving Christ, loving each other

Committed to caring for one another

Making disciples of

Jesus Christ

for the transformation of the world

Each person is a unique creation of God and, through grace, is a child of God. The people of First Lutheran Church welcome all because God welcomes all, without regard for race or culture, sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status, physical or mental challenges, imprisonment, addictions, socio-economic circumstances, or anything else that too often divides us. First Lutheran Church is a spiritual community that celebrates the gifts of God that can empower us to engage in the struggles of life, to care for each other, and to serve Christ where we work and live. Our unity is in Christ.


We desire to grow in our understanding of what it means to be disciples of Christ and ambassadors of his love and grace.

Plug in


We feel called to care for all of God’s children and creation congregationally, locally and globally.

Get involved
