First Lutheran Church's Mission Statement is: "Christ's Love, Transforming Lives to Go!" It is understanding that when we are in relationship with Jesus Christ, we cannot help but be transformed. God then sends us into the world as changed people. Christian Growth is a lifelong journey. Adult Education opportunities are a tool of lifelong learning. These are not education classes where a teacher is passing knowledge onto students, but instead are opportunities for us to gather and learn from one another. Do not sit on the sidelines of faith. JOIN the JOURNEY!
