What about Sunday School? Our ministry with kids is called LOGOS and is held on Wednesday evenings for kids and parents. Meaning, LOGOS is First Lutheran’s Sunday school program. Contact Lisa Lee, lisalee@firstlutheranlodi.org,  for more information about Children’s and Youth Ministry at FLC. Check out the philosophy of LOGOS here.

What should I know about Confirmation at FLC? First Lutheran Church encourages youth and their parents to participate in our confirmation ministry.  Confirmation ministry and youth ministry are essentially the same thing at FLC.

Youth and parents may enroll at anytime and youth can complete it by their 10th grade year. Contact Pastor Michael Lee, mlee@firstlutheranlodi.org, or the church office, office@firstlutheranlodi.org, for more information.
