We Welcome Everyone to Worship
Our church is known for dynamic, thought-provoking sermons, with messages of hope which are gospel based. Over the years our pastors have brought insight, direction, hope and comfort to countless people.
First Lutheran Church is a liturgical church, which means that a particular worship form is followed at each service.
Worship means, “work of the people” and our liturgical form of worship enables us to be participants in, rather than spectators of, the worship service.
Several worship formats, from traditional to more contemporary, are used so that there is variety in the services from Sunday to Sunday, but the basic form of the service is the same.
The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper (Communion) is celebrated at every Sunday service. The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is an inclusive meal for all baptized people of God. This means if you take communion in your church, or are a baptized Christian, you can take communion at this church.
Children are welcome at all services. A children’s sermon is given at each Sunday service. Nursery care is provided at Sunday services.
During Lent we meet at the church at 6:15 on Wednesday for a simple soup and bread meal, followed by a worship service based on Holden Evening Prayer at 7:00. The sermons for these services follow a theme for the Lenten season.
We have a radio broadcast of the previous week’s Sunday service on Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m. on KAPS radio 660 AM
