As we begin our 151st year, the congregation continues to gather as faithful people to worship, learn and serve.
On June 5, 2022, First Lutheran welcomed seventeen individuals ranging in age from 80s to 3 year old's. Our diverse group of new members join with us in mission to the church, the world, and our neighbors. If you are inquiring about what it means to be a member, please contact Pastor Kristine (email@example.com). New Member Sundays will be held on a regular basis as inquirers show an interest in joining the congregation.
Those who are inquiring about what it means to be a child of God, a Lutheran, a seeker of the gospel are invited to participate in conversations designed for anyone interested in what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. You may have been baptized, confirmed and served for many years in a church, or you may be inquiring what it means to be a Lutheran, curious what a member of a congregation does or does not do. All of these questions are relevant and appropriate. What do you seek? This is a great question all of us must answer as we gather to worship, learn and serve.
Contact Pastor Kristine (firstname.lastname@example.org) to inquire about joining a conversation on what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
