Welcome to First Evangelical Lutheran Church

Whether a member, a friend or a casual observer we welcome you to the web-site of First Evangelical Lutheran Church

First Lutheran is a parish of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and one of nearly 200 congregations of the New England Synod. Our doors are open to life-long Lutheran Christians, Christians of other denominations and to those seeking to know more about Christ. First is a community of faith centered in Word and Sacrament and focused on proclaiming the Good News of the Gospel to a world in turmoil. We invite you to join us as we offer ourselves to God and to the greater community through our liturgy and prayer and service to our brothers and sisters. We ask that God bless you on your journey of faith, wherever it may lead you.

The Transfiguration of Our Lord

Witnesses to the glory of God in the face of Jesus will be unable to avoid reflecting that glory in the world. It was true for Moses. It was doubtless true for Peter, James, and John. We pray that it will be true of all of us who see the glory of the Lord in the word and in the supper and who are being “transformed into the same image” by the Spirit of God.
