WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM WORSHIP?
Depending on the worship style you connect with most, you can find both blended and contemporary worship at First Lutheran. First enjoys a relaxed community setting, with many informal, welcoming and fun parts of worship.
Wednesday evening worship from 6-6:30 is relaxed and casual with a reflection and a few hymns, while weekend services include a 5:30 pm Saturday evening casual service, and an 8 am Sunday service which is more blended with Bell Choir and Senior Choir adding to the worship experience.
The 10:30 am Sunday service is more contemporary with Middle School, High School and Adult Contemporary music groups offering praise music.
There is always an uplifting message of hope offered by one of the pastors and texting prayers is always welcome along with the open invitation to take communion whenever we gather as a community of believers. You may also use the nursery for infants and toddlers during services every Sunday, large print bulletins for the vision impaired and hearing devices for the hearing impaired are available.
Gospel for the week of August 19 & 20, 2017
“Woman, great is your faith!”
Matthew 15: 21-28(NRSV)
Jesus left that place and went away to the district of Tyre and Sidon. Just then a Canaanite woman from that region came out and started shouting, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is tormented by a demon." But he did not answer her at all. And his disciples came and urged him, saying, "Send her away, for she keeps shouting after us." He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." But she came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me." He answered, "It is not fair to take the children's food and throw it to the dogs." She said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed instantly.
