The main entry to the sanctuary is clearly marked on the north side of the building near the Handicapped Parking spaces. You may park on Avenue D or in the large parking area across the street to the east of the church.


First Lutheran Church follows a traditional and historic Lutheran Christian liturgy for worship.


A Worship Bulletin is given to each person by one of the Ushers who can guide you to pew seating and answer any questions you may have.


The specific elements of the service are different each week. Watch the large screen at the front of the church for announcements and words to the hymns. You can expect to hear and see familiar traditional hymns, sung responses, and the occasional contemporary song.


Pastor Ryan usually invites the children in attendance to the front of the church for a brief Children's Message. We also provide Children's Bulletins and cloth bags containing some crayons and Biblical coloring books for restless little ones.

Communion is served each week. There is no pressure to take communion, but if you are not a member of FLC, nor a congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, and would like to take communion, please speak to an Usher before the service begins.

After worship, we gather for coffee or tea in the Narthex, and you are welcome to join us and meet our friendly congregation. There are bulletin boards where you can get a feel for our activities and missions we support.
