At FLC, we come together as a community to worship Jesus. We’re imperfect people who aspire to become more like Jesus and live out His mission, not just on Sundays, but in the way we live our lives every day. It won’t take you long to discover that we’re more than just a Sunday church.
What to expect?
Since each of us was a first time guest at some point, we know that being new can be a bit awkward.
Here is what you can expect at First Lutheran Church:
Some people arrive a bit earlier than others to grab a cup of coffee and a catch up with friends before the service begins.
We offer a traditional worship service featuring liturgy and hymns at 8:30am. A contemporary serve blending hymns and praise songs is offered at 11:00am.
All children are welcome to join us during the worship service!
Every Sunday you can walk out the doors with some principle you can put to use on Monday.
People often stay around after the service to meet new people and connect with friends they may not have seen all week.
You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our weekend service. Come in what is comfortable for you, because church is not about what you look like or what you wear.
We invite families with little children into our worship time! In the event your child becomes restless, there is a Nursery Room at the back of the church with sight and sound!
Children are offered age appropriate ministry on Sunday mornings.
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated at this congregation in the confession and glad confidence that, as he says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but his very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with him and with one another.
Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, are asked to speak with an Elder or the pastor.
“Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.” (1 Cor. 11:27-28) For further study, see Matthew 5:23f; 10:32f; 18:15–35; 26:26–29; 1 Cor. 11:17–34
