  • This year’s Christmas Cantata will be during the regular services on Saturday, December 15th at 5:00 pm, and Sunday, December 16th at 8:00 am and 10:00 am.

  • The Blue Christmas Service is on Thursday, December 20th at 11:00 AM. This will be held at First Lutheran Church and this year the theme is: When Christmas Hurts. You are then invited to a Fellowship Luncheon at The Forty Club immediately following. (Lunch will be on your own). It is a wonderful time of conversation and sharing a meal together.
          We will not be holding an evening service this year. Why do we have this? For some people the holidays are not joyful; they are lonely, in mourning, feeling alienated and cast apart from family celebrations; they are experiencing depression and sadness and yet are often compelled to “put on a happy face” for others, denying their true feelings.
          You are welcome and encouraged to bring a memento or a picture in remembrance of the person you are grieving to be placed on the candle table on December 20th.
