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 July 15 & 16:
“… But as for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit …”
Matthew 13: 1-9, 18-23 (NRSV)
That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea. Such great crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat there, while the whole crowd stood on the beach. And he told them many things in parables, saying: "Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell on the path, and the birds came and ate them up. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and they sprang up quickly, since they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched; and since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Let anyone with ears listen! Hear then the parable of the sower. When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in the heart; this is what was sown on the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet such a person has no root, but endures only for a while, and when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, that person immediately falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the lure of wealth choke the word, and it yields nothing. But as for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty."
On June 5th First Lutheran welcomed our new Interim Lead Pastor, Rev. Joy Mortensen-Wiebe. We welcome her to worship and look forward to her work with us here. Come meet Pastor Joy at worship!
