About FIRST LUTHERAN
Coming together to Worship & Grow
We are a welcoming community that encourages people to come as they are. Some of us come in jeans others in suits. All ages, cultural backgrounds, and abilities are welcome to worship God, grow in faith, and eat together. We follow a pattern of worship that is an ancient tradition, but with varied types of music and modern preaching.
You’ll find that we enjoy sharing meals together, whether in Communion during worship, Wednesday nights, or at our Sunday Community Meal. We appreciate that children are part of worship, but on occasion, everyone needs a break. We have a Nursery Nook where parents may still listen to the service while children play quietly.
We partner with our community to serve our neighbors, including the Sheridan Story, Southern Anoka County Assistance (SACA), Tesfa International Academy, which is housed in our building, and the Minneapolis Area Synod of the ELCA.
