First Evangelical Lutheran Church
First Evangelical Lutheran Church is a tight-knit community of believers that meets in a historic church building on the Hill. The church welcomes those who are new to the Lutheran Church, as well as those who have grown up in the Lutheran faith tradition.
The church emphasizes the importance of both the word of God and the sacraments.
First Evangelical Lutheran was founded by Swedish immigrants who met and worshipped for several years before receiving a pastor to guide them. The area where the church sits was known as Swede Hill because so many Swedish immigrants lived there.
Pastor Linda is known for her warm smile and welcoming ways. The church features an active youth group, beautiful music and a Saturday evening worship service.
