From the Pastor
Welcome to First Lutheran Church
The Mission of First Lutheran Church is to Preach, Teach, and Outreach with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the ministries of our church and school we want all people to grow in our relationship with Jesus. First Lutheran Church is a 500 member congregation affiliated with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, the eight largest Protestant denomination in the United States and the second largest Lutheran body. The word Synod means “walking together”. As a ministry we have been walking together in the Fort Smith are since 1853. God has blessed us for over 150 years and will continue to bless us as we move through the 21st century. Jesus Christ has given us the gift of eternal life by His death on the cross and resurrection from the grace. Our desire it to live and share that gift of abundant life, and we would love to share it with you. You are welcome to join us in living that life by serving God and our neighbor.
