About Us

First LutheranWelcome to First Lutheran Church!  We are a welcoming community of people actively living out our faith in Jesus Christ.  Our worship services share uplifting messages that are relevant to today's world, and offer an open and inviting atmosphere where adults and children are welcome and included.  Through activities for people of all ages we experience God's love and grow in faith.

We invite you to join in worship this weekend - and in serving our neighbors throughout the week!

COVID-19 Announcements

In response to the COVID-19, (Corona Virus), pandemic, First Lutheran Church is suspending worship beginning March 17, 2020.  We believe that this is the most responsible action we can take in order to keep our community healthy.

We will take guidance from the CDC, the State of Minnesota, and the NW Minnesota Synod as we consider the safest time and manner to start gathering again for worship.  As we begin taking steps toward re-opening for worship and other activities, we will keep you informed though email, phone calls, and here on this website.  You can join in worship using the service video provided above.  There will be a new video each week.

Please continue to pray for each other, for our country, and for our world.  Reach out to one another in fellowship by using phone calls, cards, emails, etc.  We are not alone in this difficult time. Remember Jesus' words in Matthew 28:

"I am with you always."



First Lutheran is a friendly, relaxed community of God's people.

ALL are welcome!
