First Lutheran Church Welcomes You!

We are a faith community of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, serving the Pecatonica community and surrounding areas since 1857.

As we celebrate more than 160 years of bringing love, compassion, and joy to our region, we look at a world profoundly different than our Swedish ancestors. Yet in many ways, it is still similar to those days: uncertainty is still a big constant in our lives. Fortunately, we have within us a true certainty: a faith in Jesus Christ that gives us hope and everlasting life. Our wish is for all to be a part of this faith and to be a part of our family. We welcome all to join us. Come as you are to share in our joy, our hope, our lives.
