"God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore, we will not fear."

Psalm 46:1-2

Updated COVID Protocols Effective: June 2021: The church council continues to slowly return things to normal at the church. We will no longer require masks to be worn in the building. The decision is based on the number of members who have been vaccinated as well as a review of the active COVID numbers in Sanders County. We ask that if you are sick, please stay home and take care of yourself.


Masks are no longer required to be worn during worship, but all other protocols will remain in effect. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please do so.

Fellowship After Worship

A time for coffee and fellowship after worship resumes on June 13, 2021. The tables and chairs are spaced in the fellowship hall with a limit of four people per table. The host/hostess will be serving coffee and tea. If you prefer, you are invited to enjoy fellowship outdoors weather permitting.

Small Groups (Bible Studies, Meetings, Etc.)

Masks are no longer required in small groups. However, if one group member prefers that masks are used, the council asks that their request is honored.

We have a Mission …

First Lutheran Church is called by God to be a welcoming church witnessing to Christ in loving service to the world.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

(Matthew 5:16)

We have a Vision …

We will follow God’s plan for us to grow in faith, service, and community.

I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.

(John 15:5)
