First United is a Word and Sacrament ministry for Jesus Christ in the Lutheran tradition. Worship and the Holy Sacraments are central to our mission as people who belong to Jesus Christ. We are called to be servants in Hammond and to surrounding communities, and to the world as we proclaim the resurrected Christ who unites us as one body. Our congregation provides opportunities to serve and/or participate in worship, the Sacraments, Bible study and Christian education, fellowship and much more within the loving community of our faith family. We are blessed to be a congregation of the North American Lutheran Church [NALC] and we endorse and adhere to the four core values of being Christ Centered, Mission Driven, Traditionally Grounded, and Congregationally Focused.
