We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. First Lutheran has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

On Sunday, October 26, First Lutheran will celebrate Reformation Sunday with the rite of Confirmation (Affirmation of Baptism).  Three youth who have successfully completed their comfirmation studies will be affirmed as adult members of the Christian Church.  They will also take a leadership role in worship on that Sunday.  Reformation is the day in which Martin Luther nailed his 95 Thesis upon the door of the Wittenberg Church on All Hallow's Eve (Oct. 31)  The thesis were meant to debate the church's practice of indulgences.  Lutherans remember the Reformation as a need to seek reform within the Church.  The group pictured above were confirmed in 2012.  Please join us on this special day!

First's annual Trunk or Treat will be held Saturday, October 31 in the parking lot.  Join us for a fellowship and fun in providing treats for the kids of Warren from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.  Cookies, hot dogs, cocoa, coffee will be available in Niewoehner Hall.  Just follow the blinking luminaries!
