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).


First Lutheran Church - Worship Service

First Lutheran celebrates your presence with us on this Seventh Sunday of Easter. If you are looking for a church home, we would love for you to join our church family.

Friends in Christ,

Join us for our 9:00 a.m. premiere on the First Lutheran Church, San Diego YouTube channelTo see the bulletin, go to the Worship and Ministry Tab, look for the Online Worship page, and follow that down to the bottom where youll find the PDF bulletin link.

In this week’s readings the risen Christ ascends into heaven and his followers are assured that the Spirit will empower them to be witnesses throughout the earth. The disciples were told to not gaze up into heaven to look for Jesus (Acts 1:11); we find his presence among us as we proclaim the word and share the Easter feast. We too long for the Spirit to enliven our faith and invigorate our mission. 

This Sunday, as part of Memorial Day weekend,  we also remember and honor those who have given their lives in service to our nation, protecting and defending our freedom and way of life.

We will have patriotic music from Joe DeMers, in the form of the National Hymn and the Navy hymn; Jan Neuhaus and Paul Engel will sing for us, and the Rev. Lee Precup will lead us in prayer.


Need a Mask?

Beginning May 1, 2020, residents of San Diego County are now required to wear a face covering when leaving home and wear it when you’re within six feet of anyone not a household member, or when entering a business. Cloth facial coverings don’t have to be medical grade but should cover your nose and mouth. Homemade masks, bandanas, scarves, and neck gaiters are acceptable since they can be washed and reused.

Over the last few weeks, some members of FLC have been making cloth face masks for use by our patio parishioners. We would like to extend the same offer to our members.

If you need a face mask, please send an email to Susan White ( and we will ensure that you get a mask. In your email please provide your current mailing address. We have found that many addresses on file with us are not current.

Your well-being is important to us!
