Fellowship is one of the joys of the Christian life. At First Lutheran Church and Preschool we experience fellowship through worship, studying God's Word together, and events (Crab Feed, Easter Egg Hunt, VBS, Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving, Breakfast with Santa, and many more).
There are a variety of fellowship groups that you can join. These groups meet to study the Bible and support each other through joys and challenges as we all seek to follow Jesus together. Groups meet on different days at different times and vary in style and focus. You can see a list of these groups below to determine which might be the best fit for you.
Sunday School is from 10:45-11:30 am, which is after the worship service. Children gather in the Education Room for an opening and then split off into their classrooms. Sunday school is taught by members of the church and is for children ages 2-12. This is a time for the children in our congregation to learn about God, the story of His people, and how we are a part of that story because of Jesus. Materials are always provided.
Adult Bible Study is led by Pastor Andy and takes place after the worship service in the sanctuary, from 10:45-11:30 am. This is a time to explore the riches of God's Word and learn from each other as we grow in faith and knowledge. Feel free to bring your own Bibles or to use one of the church's copies.
