A multi-generational congregation in downtown Sioux Falls


First Lutheran is your grandmother's church, your kid's church, your parent's church, and yours. We live, serve, reach out and worship in the name of Jesus Christ. We give God's Word in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin, and teach how to share the good news while serving our neighbors' needs, and building up the community of faith.

We welcome all people into the community of Jesus Christ, equipping and sending them forth to serve and witness in Jesus' name. We strive to be

A Welcoming Home in the Heart of Sioux Falls.
