Welcome statement

Our Lord Jesus Christ calls us to welcome all people, and indeed First Lutheran Church has a long history and cherished identity as a welcoming congregation.

We welcome all who are seeking spiritual growth and enrichment. We offer Christian worship in the Lutheran tradition with the goals of making worship meaningful and readily accessible for the participant. Communion is open to all who are drawn to the table.

We welcome children and embrace our role as extended family. We offer a place of worship where children are seen, heard, and respected and accepted for who they are, as they are, and guided in their faith development.

We welcome the diversity of families present in our society. We are committed to ministry with persons in a variety of family configurations.

We welcome people of all gender identities and sexual orientations as participants and members in our congregation.

We welcome persons of color and persons whose primary language is not English. We are eager to nurture exchange among all cultures.

We welcome persons with varying disabilities, including physical, mental and emotional. Our building is handicap accessible, and we strive to provide other accommodations as needed.

We welcome people of all economic backgrounds.

YOU ARE WELCOME to learn of Jesus Christ and to share fellowship, time, talent and treasure to His greater glory.
