Beginning on Thursday May 6th, at 1 pm, Adult Bible Study will resume.  Join Pastor Kristine in the Fireside Room for a discussion on Paul’s letters to the church in Thessalonica. The letters to the Thessalonians are the earliest writings of the church when Paul exhorts and encourages these new Christians to continue in their faith. 

     We will gather in-person in the Fireside Room each week to learn from Paul.  If you would like to join us by zoom, simply contact Pastor Kristine and we will make arrangements to include you in the conversation!

About Us

We are an Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) congregation serving on the north side of Sioux City, Iowa.  Started in 1872, we have been serving Lutherans in this area for 149 years.  We are a liturgical worshiping congregation who love to sing, pray and praise God in worship.  We have opportunities for life long learning from pre-school to adults.  We provide food to those in need out of our Holy Family Food Pantry, Wednesday mornings from 9 am until 11:30 am.  We support several non-profit community groups providing meeting space.  We welcome guests and visitors to our worship services, ministries, activities and programs.  During this time of covid, we ask all to wear a mask and safely distance from one another while in the building and on our property.  We take seriously the continued need to provide a safe place, a sanctuary, for the people of God to gather to worship, grow in the faith and serve others.


At First Lutheran Church…..

We are a Christian community called by God to respond to God’s gift of grace as servants to the world.  


First Lutheran is an Evangelical Lutheran Church in America congregation founded in 1872.  We love worship, creative and varied liturgical styles and a traditional focus on Word and Sacrament which grounds our worship in thanks and praise to God.
