Our mission, which we remember each week as worship closes, is to remember that we are:
A Welcoming Community in Christ,
and serving all.
First Lutheran is a congregation in the midst of renewal and seeking new ways to be church. We are not a programmed ‘big box’ church with a well-oiled presentation. We value a traditional liturgical worship format with a mix of both ancient traditions and blending new and old musical formats. Our community is more built on relationships than on programs; we are more focused on people than activities.
One of our big ways we are present in the community is through Camp Hope, where teenagers from several different church traditions serve together to provide a three-week day camp ministry for young people in elementary and middle school. This ministry outgrew our facility and is now housed at First Christian, but is organized by First Lutheran with support from several congregations.
A significant connection to the San Marcos community is our Kids of the Kingdom preschool ministry. It is a positive environment for your child to learn and grow in a Christ-centered environment.
