What’s Happening at First Lutheran

THANKSGIVING EVE WORSHIP

On Wednesday, November 26th, Thanksgiving Eve worship will be held at 7:00 p.m.  Thanksgiving Day is our nation’s food-and-family festival, and Christians add to the rituals of this holiday a time to thank God for all that we have received. Join us at worship, before you “eat your fill,” and “bless the LORD for the good land” in which we live.

 

BED, BETHLEHEM AND BEYOND…when Heaven Touched Earth

Join us on Sunday, December 14th at 9:00 a.m. as we celebrate the birth of Christ with our Sunday School children.  The innkeeper at the local in is set for a crush of guests – he expects perfection and gets it.  “Customer Satisfaction” is his motto, and not a speck of dust or wrinkled sheet gets in the way.  Until….one night he discovers trouble brewing in his inn, and his reputation is at risk.  What is the lesson he will learn that evening?  We hope you can join us for this clever presentation.

 

Prayer Cube Sale

Welcome

From Pastor Peterson

Dear Friends in Christ

I greet you with this word from Matthew 28:19 & 20 – “Go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”

These are the words of Jesus recorded at the very end of the Gospel of Matthew. Then Jesus adds “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” These words give us our purpose as a church. We are to go and tell others of the wonderful news of Jesus as long as we are here on this earth. And Jesus has promised to be very near us and help us every step of the way.

I invite you to come and worship our risen Lord Jesus Christ with us and join into the work of telling the world that there is a Savior.
