Online Worship

Join us on Zoom at 7:00PM each Wednesday Evening for a time of centering, reflection and devotion. Click here: WEDNESDAY EVENING PRAYER

Led by Deacon Margy Schmidt Ajer and Pastor Kurt Christenson we use the classic Vespers Service from the ELW Hymnal. 

For now our service is spoken rather than chanted but follows the ancient pattern. Some weeks there may be Feast Day or Commemoration texts to follow but otherwise we will use readings from the Daily Lectionary.

The service lasts about 40 minutes.

See the resources available below for worship and ministry sessions available both online and livestream.

Tenth Sunday after Pentecost

Friends in Christ, blessings to you. 

Please join us tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. for the premiere of the worship video on the First Lutheran Church YouTube Channel. The bulletin is available down below.

Elijah finds the presence of God not in earthquake, wind, or fire, but in the sound of sheer silence. When the disciples face a great storm on the sea, they cry out with fear. Jesus says: “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.” Amid the storms of life, we gather to seek the calm presence of Christ that soothes our fears. In comforting words of scripture and in the refreshing bread and cup of the eucharist, God grants us peace and sends us forth to be a sign of God’s presence to others.

Nancy Eckert’s artwork will be featured during the service. Thanks to Nancy for sharing her art, to Joe DeMers for providing the music, to Bill Radatz for putting together the video, and especially to the Creative Spirits team for sharing your works with the congregation!
