 Join us on Sunday, September 23rd at 10 am for our 100th anniversary festival procession and worship. That evening you are invited to Salty's at 5 pm for dinner ($75 per person). Be sure to make your reservations 206-935-6530 before September 9th.

     We give thanks to God for our wonderful legacy. First Lutheran Church of West Seattle has touched many lives in West Seattle and throughout the world. At this time we remember those who have worked hard and gone before us. To prepare, we have been cleaning, repairing and planning for the big day.

     On Sunday, September 23rd at 10 am, you won't want to miss being a part of the procession from the site of our first church building in 1918 to our present building, and the Holy Eucharist and Hymn Festival at 10:30 am in the nave. Then plan to join us for dinner at Salty's on Sunday, September 23rd at 5 pm. Besides a delicious meal ($75 each, reservations must be made through the church before September 9th) we will have a slideshow presentation by Paul Dorpat, columnist for the "Now & Then" series in The Seattle Times, on Seattle 100 years ago. Also a few thoughts on our community and First Lutheran Church of West Seattle will be shared by Jack Miller of Husky Deli.



We worship in the ancient, historical patterns that Christians have handed down through the centuries.  We celebrate the Lord's Supper at both of our liturgies on Sunday mornings, and on Wednesdays, every week of the year.  This is the way Christ wanted us to remember him on the Lord's Day.



      Our prayer together is always liturgical, following the historical forms  of the Church.  We read Holy Scriptures as they are appointed in the Lectionary.  The sermon explains those readings in terms of the Law and Gospel.  In this we rely on Martin Luther's (1483-1546) understanding of Christ's mission and life.


       Our hymns and choral music reinforce the Scriptures read, proclaimed and prayed in our worship.  This supports the solemnity of our praise to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Historical vestments and traditional rituals also contribute to the richness of worship.  All our corporate worship is offered within the consecrated walls of our church which is deemed God's holy and sacred house of prayer.
