News & Newsletter

First Lutheran Church of San Diego welcomes you to receive Communion regardless of denominational affiliation or church membership. All our communion tables are open, in the sanctuary and on our patio, on Mondays and Fridays where hundreds come to receive their daily bread. Restrooms are available as you leave the sanctuary to the right. There is a nursery for little ones throughout the morning (see an usher for directions).

Friends in Christ, grace to you, and peace

In Wednesday’s HeartBeat I mentioned there would be news to share about our updated worship life. In a marvelously ironic twist, the video I made for sharing some exciting information about worship technology has encountered a major technological glitch; Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy. 

The real news is that First Lutheran is the recipient of one of the Synod’s Worship Technology grants. Nearly all of our congregations will continue to broadcast worship along with hosting live in-person services. The grants are to assist congregations in the ongoing effort to improve upon and expand their capacity to stream worship in a lovely and vibrant way. 

We are receiving a one-to-one matching grant for $4,700. Several generous gifts were received, allowing us to invest another $9,400 to upgrade and expand. To date, all the funds necessary to film, edit, and broadcast worship have come from gifts above and beyond regular offerings toward our budget. 

Please look for a link this coming Wednesday to a video that will explain more of what is to come. 

See you On the Patio, 

Pastor Kurt
