Welcome to First Lutheran Church!

"Praising Our God and Loving His People..."


Who are we as this community of faith called First Evangelical Lutheran Church of Idaho Falls? Hopefully these pages of information will bear witness to the fact that we are a community of faith seeking to "Praise our God and love His people". The Scripture verses that follow from Colossians are marching orders to us for ministry that we seek to follow.

Hopefully, as you acquaint yourself with who we are, you will want to join us in the mission we undertake in Jesus' name. You will be welcome at First Evangelical Lutheran Church of Idaho Falls.
