About Us


First Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which was organized in three expressions that enable and support us all to grow in faith and put faith into action. We can do together what would be impossible as a single church body.

The three expressions include the:

  • Congregations of the ELCA (10,500 across the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands)
  • Synods (65 across the U.S.) We are a part of the Southeast Minnesota Synod of the ELCA based in Rochester, MN.
  • Churchwide Organization (based in Chicago and at work globally)
