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, though, is secondary to the reason we gather—to give our thanks to God and to 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 also available on Sunday mornings 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. service, and on the first Sunday of each month at the 9:30 and 11 a.m. services. All baptized Christians who believe Jesus is Lord are invited to share communion with us, regardless of denomination.

We are part of the South Dakota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
