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.

Pastor Larry Cudmore


You can now listen to and download the weekly scriptures and sermons. Just go to the Audio menu on the left and follow the links.


What's Happening at First Lutheran Church

  • Upcoming Events
  • Announcements

Where's Where in God's Word is a close look at where the events of the Bible took place. It will be taught at church in two sessions, i.e., Saturdays, January 21 and 28; 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. It is a well-illustrated course developed by Bill Lockman using PowerPoint. The course is designed to help one understand the places and culture behind the stories of the Bible.

Sunnyside Saints' Luncheon January 26th, at 11:30 am The menu will be chicken pot pie with biscuits, salad and dessert. Lunch will be followed with an exciting game of BINGO. Please sign up by Friday, January 20th on the sheet in the Fellowship Hall or call the office at 522-9301.

Transportation Meeting next Sunday 29th following worship in the Lounge. Questions, contact Geri Magnuson.

All Congregational Birthday Party & Talent Show January 29TH, at 6:00 PM There will be 12 decorated tables, one for each month of 2017, with each table having a birthday cake. When you come, sit at the table of your birthday month, and celebrate during the dessert time, your birthday with others having their birthdays on your month. Eat your dinner before you come because this is just a dessert party. Then once we are in to the dessert sharing, we will start our talent show. So, first, would you sign up for bringing a birthday cake for your month. Heide will have a list in the office, 522-9301. Second, would you consider offering your talent for the talent show. Again, please sign up with Heide in the office. This is going to be great fun. Start your planning, practicing now.

We need more talent for the Talent show! Don't miss Pastor Jason's impersonation of Miss Piggy & Yoda and Pastor Larry's Ventriloquist Act.

Red Cross Blood Drive at First Lutheran on Friday, Feb. 3rd from 1:30 - 7:00 pm. Please come and donate your life-saving gift. Sign-ups are in the narthex or you can call Penny at 522-9301. Thanks for "paying it forward."

First Holy Communion Instruction If you have never had instruction on Holy Communion (what it means, why we do it every week, etc.), then I encourage you to sign up after Worship Service as Pastor Jason will be leading a class for 3rd graders in getting ready to partake of Holy Communion. We will meet on Sunday the 12th, 19th & 26th at 12:00 pm in the Sanctuary. First Communion Sunday will be on March 5th and the baking of the communion bread on Saturday March 4th at 10:00 am. Any questions, please see Pastor Jason.

Attention FELC members Since the nursery has been underutilized for some time , it has been decided to NO LONGER offer a staffed nursery on Sundays. Unless we get word that this would be a problem for anyone, the last day we will offer a staffed nursery will be February 5th. We will however have nursery attendants on holidays and special events as needed. Thank you, Your Discipleship Ministry Team

Office Volunteers Needed to answer phones during staff meetings on Tuesday from 10am - 11:30am, once a month or whenever available. If you are interested, please contact the church office.

Hospital Stays: Our Pastors no longer have access to the list of patients in the hospital, so if you or someone you know is in the hospital, please notify the church office at 522-9301 or by email.
