Love Your Neighbor.

Organ Concert! On Saturday, August 17th at 7PM(right after our regular Saturday service), The Reverend Norman Paskowsky will present an organ recital here at First Lutheran, using both our chancel and rear gallery organs. Pastor Paskowsky was Organist-Choirmaster at First Lutheran from 1976-78, prior to earning his Master of Divinity Degree from Wartburg Seminary in 1985. He currently serves several parishes in Western North Dakota. However, he continues to pursue his passion for the organ by playing recitals during his summer vacation time. Plan to attend this evening of music that will showcase our two wonderful pipe organs!
