At First Lutheran Church, we are called to connection with God, each other, and our neighbors in and beyond Columbia Heights. God connects with us through the reconciling act of Jesus Christ and the daily ministry of God’s Spirit. 

We connect to God as a spiritual community through worship and prayer, study and the sacraments, and mutual support and service. This sacred connection calls us into relationship with our neighbors with whom God’s love has knit us together. 

We connect especially to the neighborhood and its youth who have been an essential part of our story from the very beginning when a rural ministry to immigrant children evolved into a long-standing and ever-present calling to love, nurture and mentor young people in our community.

As our neighborhood and world changes we commit to adjust as well, making space for growth, healing, generosity and community-building. We will honor each other's diverse stories and continue living connected to God and to each other. We rely on God's Spirit to guide us.

Stewardship: Well of Faith 
& Alternative Lord’s Prayer 

Jesus said in John 7:38, “Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.” 


How do we bring living water into our homes, neighborhoods, and world?
For this year's Give to the Max campaign, please consider supporting our food ministry at First Lutheran Church. We provide Free meals to local children twice weekly, and to the adults & children in our community each Sunday.

Together, with the whole Body of Christ, we have the capacity to flood the entire world with living water by sharing our spiritual, physical, and financial gifts during November's month of Giving!

Here is an alternative version of the Lord’s Prayer written by a church in England. May this English translation renew the meaning of the prayer in your life in a new way:  

Alternative Lord’s Prayer
Eternal Spirit, Life-Giver, Pain-bearer, Love-maker, 
Source of all that is and that shall be,
Father and Mother of us all, Loving God, in whom is heaven: the Hallowing of your Name echoes through the universe.
The Way of your Justice be followed by the people of the world.
Your Heavenly Will be done by all created beings.
Your commonwealth of Peace and Freedom sustain our hope and come on earth.
With the bread we need for today, feed us.
In the hurts we absorb from one another, forgive us.
In times of temptation and test, strengthen us.
From trials too sharp to endure, spare us.
From the grip of all that is evil, free us.
For you reign in the glory of the power that is love, now and forever. Amen.
