Who We Are

By the power of God's grace First Lutheran Church celebrates a rich legacy of ministries geared toward meeting the needs of the Williston area community. Today that legacy is lived out through the many ministry opportunities offered.  We believe that it is through God's abundance that we can serve our neighbor, and it is our heritage as Lutheran's that reminds us, God's grace and mercy is for us to share abundantly with others.

Our Mission

Our mission is to invite all people to join with us as we relate to God, nurture faith, and are sent to serve.
