We invite you to join us for worship, fellowship and celebration. There is a place for you here, no matter what.

Upcoming Events – All Are Welcome!

We are pleased to announce that First Evangelical Lutheran Church is providing weekly music worship with sermons from Pastor Folmar. These services are available each Sunday on our FELC Facebook page. They are also available on our YouTube channel.

Each service can be viewed on-demand, beginning on its scheduled date. This means that you can attend our services at any time that is convenient for you.

You will see all of our videos in order of date posted, most recent first. Videos will remain on the site for viewing any time after the date of the service.

In addition, we would like to continue to keep in touch with everyone during this time of social distancing. We would like to know how you prefer to receive outreach from your church. We can maintain contact with you by phone, email, regular mail or text. Please contact us in a manner convenient to you, and let us know your preference, so that we can all remain a part of each others’ lives.

Finally, this time of social distancing we are inviting you to make use of the "Donate" button on this site. Hopefully, this makes it more convenient for you to remember our church’s financial needs.
