Children's Christmas Program
Join us for worship on Sunday, December 15, at 9:30 am, as the Sunday Kids Klub presents "Deck the Halls and Trim the Tree," a Christmas pageant. Kids of all ages have a part and will be joined by the adult choir for the finale. Family and friends are invited for worship as well as a "Jesus Birthday Party" following worship in Fellowship Hall. Come join the fellowship.
Advent Wednesday Evening Services
In preparation for Christmas, First Lutheran will have a series of Wednesday evening services at 7:00 pm, beginning on December 4th and ending on December 18th. Our Pastor Bill Shields will be exchanging pulpits with his son, Pastor Matt Shields, St. John's Lutheran Church, Flanagan, Illinois, on December 11. The sermon series is entitled "Unwrapping Some Christmas Traditions," and will include topics of "The Christmas Tree," "The Creche (Nativity Scene)" and "Saint Nicholas."
Preceding each service, soup and sandwiches will be served in Fellowship Hall beginning at 5:30 pm. Come for fellowship and stay for worship that helps prepare us for the real Christmas. See you there.
Christmas at First Lutheran
Christmas Eve Worship is a magical affair, with candlelight and song. We offer a 4:00 pm service with a special children's sermon, and a 7:00 pm service with an adult choir anthem and benediction. Both will offer Holy Communion and both will be candlelit. Please note that there will not be an 11:00 pm worship service.
Join Christians around the world as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus.
