We at First English Lutheran Church welcome you and your family. We hope that you enjoy worshipping with us and feel at ease with your worship experience.
Participating with us in worship is easy to follow, as our complete service order (including music) is included in the bulletin for each service.
Sacrament at our communion rail is open to all baptized Christians. We believe that Christ is truly present in the Bread and Wine. If you are physically unable to come to our communion rail, please tell an usher that you would like the communion brought to you. Communion is offered at all services.
We hold traditional and contemporary services each Sunday. We also hold services at all religious holidays.
We welcome all and hope that you will feel at home at First English Lutheran Church!
We are called to share the love of God, the good news of Jesus Christ, and the strength and wisdom of the Holy Spirit.
Our basic beliefs are contained in the “Apostle’s Creed” and the “Nicene Creed”. Martin Luther’s Small and Large Catechisms expand on these beliefs.
We encourage infant Baptism and Baptism is available for all ages as needed.
The first services at First English Lutheran Church were held in 1906. Worship was held in various locations in Peoria prior to moving to our present location at Forrest Hill and Wisconsin.
First English is a member of the Central Southern Illinois Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Our Church is ruled by a council of elected members.
