It is through the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ that we have forgiveness of our sins, life, and salvation. We believe that Jesus will return to take all believers with him to Heaven. This is most certainly true.

First Lutheran Church is a member of the Lutheran Church of the Missouri Synod (LCMS). Traditional worship services are offered every Sunday with occasional special services. Our Church offers a Christian based education through the Belvoir Christian Academy (BCA). The Church camp allows members a relaxing Sunday afternoon along Possum Creek. 

Welcome! We invite you to attend one of our in-person or livestream services.

The Members of First Lutheran are friendly and welcoming to guests. The order of worship is printed in the hymnals found in the pews. The service bulletin, located on the table in the lobby, lists the page number for the order of worship and hymns. Please fill out the connection card inside the bulletin so we can learn more about you and place it in the offering plate.

If you desire the Lord’s Supper, please speak with the Pastor or one of the Ushers before service.

Please speak with an Usher, Elder, or Pastor to learn more about First Lutheran.

A ministry is all about the giving of ourselves, our time and our individual talents. It’s using our available resources to bless and to help others. Here at First Lutheran Church, we use our ministries not only for that purpose but also to study God's word and to enjoy the fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
