Worship is held every Sunday morning, followed by coffee and conversation. During the months of February through July, worship is at 11:00 AM; August through January, worship is at 9:00 AM.
We begin by invoking the triune God and generally follow the ancient pattern of liturgy with prayer, confession, forgiveness, singing, scripture reading, preaching and weekly celebration of the Lord’s Supper (Communion). Through all of this we seek to point to Jesus Christ and His Good News for us - unpacking the gift of His incarnation, death and resurrection for our lives and for our world.
During the seasons of Advent (the four weeks before Christmas) and Lent (the six weeks before Easter) we offer special times and spaces for contemplation, worship and fellowship on Wednesdays.
What should I wear?
There is no dress code at First Lutheran. Dress up, dress casual – any way you dress you will be welcome.
How long is the service?
Worship length will change according to the day, but generally it is about an hour.
Can I take Communion (The Lord’s Supper)?
The table is the Lord’s, and all are welcome! In this meal you receive forgiveness and grace through the gift of Jesus’ body and blood. This eating and drinking is a regular part of the Christian life, initiated and grounded in Baptism.
Weekly Blessings
As children of God, we work together to as we walk in Christian faith. One way we do this is by sharing our abundance with others. Three Sundays of every month we send blessings into the world.
• The Second Sunday of each month prayer shawls are blessed.
• The Third Sunday of each month food for the food shelf is collected and blessed before being donated to the local food shelf. We pray for those who receive the food that they may be nourished in body and spirit.
• The Fourth Sunday of each month is a Noisy Offering. The monies collected are sent to those in need for relief from natural disasters, or to aid the welfare of others and changes monthly. The offering goes to help people locally, in our state or country, and globally. 
• The Fifth Sunday includes a service of healing with laying on of hands and anointing.
Summer Services
Once each month First Lutheran Church and Our Savior’s Lutheran Church will gather for a joint midweek worship and potluck dinner. Something different is that each month will have a theme.
All are welcome and we hope to see you there. Why not bring a friend along for the fun?
