First Lutheran offers several opportunities for Christian education for children and adults. All classes are from Sunday mornings from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m. For adults, topics include the Bible, and contemporary topics. There is always breakfast and coffee. The current adult class is looking at the writings of Francis Schaeffer. The next class will be a Bible study.
On Saturday, October 13, 2018, First Lutheran hosted its 8th annual Oktoberfest. It was another great year of neighborhood folks and church members coming out to eat, drink, listen and play. With a special focus on being child friendly and affordable for families, its a great way to spend a Saturday in October. Food was provided by Fleischwagon, and beer by Under the Radar. 2019 looks to be our best yet!

For over six years, First Lutheran has reached out to the students at the Central Campus of Houston Community College. Our latest venture is to be present outside to talk to students as they have a break from class. At our outreach table, we hope to converse with college students about life, faith, hope and, of course, Jesus.
We understand that there are unique situations where those who are not members of First Lutheran may wish to use our facilities for a wedding. If you are in such a unique situation, give us a call and we will see if we can work something out.
Once a month, we host a potluck dinner at the church to offer time for fellowship and community-building. All are welcome to attend. It is usually the last Saturday of the month, but call to make sure!
