Special Services at FLC
One of the “new” traditions at First Lutheran is the Dixieland Worship Service. Dixieland, the earliest style of Jazz music, was developed in New Orleans. The definitive Dixieland sound is created instruments improvise around that melody when one instrument (usually the trumpet) plays the melody or a recognizable paraphrase of it, and the other .
“Zing, Boom, Terraral” Come and enjoy this summer favorite! Both worship services will be filled with tapping toes and “oom-pa-pas” galore!
Baccalaureate Worship Service
FLC has a special service to recognize our high school graduates! Caps and gowns will be worn, and a special photo/musical tribute will be show.
Each year FLC’s youth and friends put on a musical in mid-August. It starts with a week of music camp which is filled with music, crafts, food and fun times. The week ends with a Saturday night performance and two Sunday morning performances.
Auditions are held for many parts and solos. Anyone who has completed 2nd grade through high school is welcomed to try out or help. Besides doing the solos, kids can be a part of the group chorus, a part of the stage crew or help lead the activities during summer camp.
Affirmation of Baptism is the service which is the culmination of the study and growth during the confirmation program. At this service, each young person affirms his or her faith in Jesus Christ. It is usually held in the fall of a youth’s sophomore year in high school.
Golden Confirmation is when FLC recognizes the 25th, 50th and 75th confirmation anniversaries of its members.
This happens in late fall during the second service. A special brunch celebration usually follows.
Greening of the Church
During the services, many of the familiar symbols of Christmas will be presented and examined from a Biblical perspective.
