We will gladly contact you and attempt to answer your questions. Thank you! WE WELCOME CHILDREN at worship. If you need the cry room it is located off the back narthex. A nursery for children 4 & under is located next to the office. We ask that the nursery be used for children in this age group only. Thank you for your cooperation.

HOLY LAND AND JORDAN TOUR –Brochures are available on the table in the hallway describing our tour to Israel and Jordan. The dates are February 26 – March 8, 2014. A tour to the Holy Land is more than simply a vacation – it is a spiritual, faith strengthening pilgrimage which truly makes the Bible come alive. Any questions, please speak to Pastor Schmidt.

THE LUTHERAN FAITH On Wednesday, October 2, 2013, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., Pastor Schmidt will be offering a class titled “The Lutheran Faith.” Wednesday evenings are very full at First English and at our first session we will look at our calendars to set up additional gatherings. All are encouraged to join with us and we especially invite new members as well as those who might be interested in being a part of the First English family. We will be meeting the same time as our Confirmation Classes, so parents of confirmation students this would be a great opportunity for you as well.
