In Our Prayers...

  • You are encouraged to receive Communion regardless of denominational affiliation or church membership. All our tables are open, in the sanctuary today and on our patio during the week where hundreds receive their daily bread. Restrooms are available as you leave the sanctuary to the right. Parking is available in the first two lots above the patio (numbered and visitor spaces); do not park in the “The Tower” lot (nearest Beech Street).

  • First Lutheran celebrates your presence with us on this Second Sunday after Pentecost. If you are looking for a church home, we would love for you to join our church family. You are welcome to receive Holy Communion regardless of denominational affiliation or church membership: all our tables are open, here in the sanctuary and on our patio where hungry people receive their daily bread on Mondays and Fridays. There is a nursery for little ones throughout the morning (see an usher for directions).

  • Bible Study: Pastor Darryl has begun a new Bible study and educational opportunity that focuses on the Lectionary, the appointed readings for the upcoming Sunday, a chance to delve into the texts and understand how God speaks to us in the Word. Classes will be in the church library on Wednesdays: one 1:15-2:15PM and the other 6:30-7:30PM. Both studies will be the same, so you’re invited to participate in either one of the sessions.

  • Sign-up Sheets: There are a large number of sign-up sheets out right now, but don’t forget to check the usual ones – there are a large number of openings in the flower and candle charts, as well as the refreshment sign-up sheet. And we could always use more greeters!
