Worship at First Lutheran Church
Our worship services range in style from “contemplative” (Saturday 5 p.m.) to “traditional” (Sunday 8 and 9:30 a.m.) to “contemporary” (Sunday 11 a.m.). The style of each service is secondary to the reason we are gathering for worship – to give our thanks to God and be transformed by the message of the Gospel. Bulletins (including large-print) are available to guide you through every part of our worship service. We encourage families to worship together, but nursery care is available for our youngest members. The decision to dress up or dress casually for church is entirely up to you. Holy Communion is offered every Saturday at the 5 p.m. service, every Sunday at the 8 a.m. services, and on the first Sunday of each month at the 9:30 and 11 a.m. services. All baptized Christians who believe that Jesus is Lord are invited to share communion with us, regardless of denomination.

Summer Worship in the Park
Worship in the Park – June 10, July 15, August 19. This summer First Lutheran Church will host Worship in the Park on three Sundays at 11 a.m. at the McKennan Park band shell. Larry Olson and friends will provide worship music. On Sundays, June 10 and July 15, the congregation is invited to bring a picnic lunch and we will gather together after worship to eat and enjoy fellowship at picnic tables by the playground equipment.
On Sunday, August 19, we will worship and celebrate the annual Blessing of the Backpacks and the Evangelism and Outreach Board will provide lunch. (Participants may bring a dessert to share if they wish.) Invite a friend, bring a lawn chair and join us for worship. In case of rain, worship will be held at First Lutheran.
