With us, up-to-date
is just the beginning.

Here at First American Lutheran Church, we believe we have a lot to offer and so do you with time, talents, and treasures. We are always working on something new, and we hope you will join us. No matter your background, we believe all are welcome—you and our community matter to us. So, please stop by for a Sunday Worship Service and introduce yourself to those around you, get involved with a Ministry Team, or have your child join one of our many youth programs.

Homebound Communion

Homebound communion will not be delivered in the month of September. If you or someone you know, who lives in the City of Oconto, would like to be added to the list, please reach out to our Church Office. Please keep in mind we need their permission to deliver communion. The next delivery date is October 1.

New Member Classes

We have a slight change of plans with our new member classes now that our new Interim Pastor, Roald Harswick, is starting at FALC. Pastor Harswick will now be leading the classes and he will be in contact with the interested new members in the near future.

Shoe Collection

First American, along with other area churches, have teamed up with the Gillett American Legion Auxiliary Unit 300, to work together to bring people all over the world shoes to walk in. Now through October 13, we are accepting donations of gently worn, used, and new walking/casual shoes (boots and shoes with heals will not be accepted). Bring your shoes by during office hours, the collection bin is near the entrance. Thank you for your support!

God's Work. Our Hands.

Our God's Work, Our Hands celebration had an amazing turnout! We especially thank our local Firefighters and Police Officers who took time out of their weekend to share a meal of appreciation with us. We are grateful for the many wonderful people we have watching over our city and keeping us safe. We also thank all those who donated delicious food, our Stewardship Team that organized the event, and everyone who attended. It was so good to gather together for a meal again.
