This Lent, we will learn who Jesus said He is through His "I Am" statements in the Gospel of John. Our goal as we make our way towards Easter is to get to know Jesus personally and deepen our relationship with Him.

Jesus Is...

We will have two worship services every Wednesday during Lent. A contemplative worship will be held at 12:10pm and our regular contemporary Wednesday worship will be at 6:30pm. There will be a soup and salad meal before each service. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesdays!

Radio broadcast, Facebook and YouTube Livestreams, and our outdoor summer worship are vital parts of our ministry at First Lutheran. We need sponsors to help continue to make these things possible. Thank you to those who have been sponsors in the past. There are many spots still available for 2023. For more information on becoming a worship sponsor, please contact Karen in the church office 320.762.2196 or click to fill out the form.
