About Us

First LutheranWelcome to First Lutheran Church!  We are a welcoming community of people actively living out our faith in Jesus Christ.  Our worship services share uplifting messages that are relevant to today's world, and offer an open and inviting atmosphere where adults and children are welcome and included.  Through activities for people of all ages we experience God's love and grow in faith.

We invite you to join in worship this weekend - and in serving our neighbors throughout the week!


This year, during the season of Advent, we will gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am around the theme of “Joy in the Darkness,” based upon the Gospel of Luke.

You are also invited to participate in small group discussions following worship at 11:00 am. We will delve deeper into the theme for each Sunday (and have a chance to get to know Pastor Maribeth!).

Each Sunday we will light the candles on the Advent wreath, prepare our hearts for the coming Messiah, and grow in our faith through the following themes:

November 28: Hope
December 5:   Peace
December 12: Joy
December 19: Love
