Welcome to First Lutheran Church

Join us for worship on Sundays at 9:45am

It can be hard to know if you belong somewhere. You might wonder if you have to be perfect and have it all figured out in order to set foot in a church. The good news is, you do belong. You do not need to be perfect. You do not need to have it all figured out. You are a beloved child of God, and you are welcome here.

We invite you to journey together with us in a life of faith in God in Christ.

God’s Work Our Hands Sunday 2017 – church members got down and dirty to clean the Malden Bike Path!

We’re getting ready for a joyful year of praise, prayer, learning, and growing in relationship together. Don’t miss Sunday, September 9th as we kick off the school year! Our service at 9:45am will end with our first Sunday School session of the year at 11am in the parish house next door. Everyone is also welcome to join us in our day of service, God’s Work, Our Hands, when we go into the community to serve our neighbors.
