Thank you for visiting our website. I am Pastor Jerry Peterson and I have been serving First Lutheran since 1987. Our church celebrated the opening of a century chest on Monday, April 22, 2013. Our church was entrusted with this chest that held many artifacts and documents that were and are part of Oklahoma's heritage. As of April 22, 2014, the items are on exhibit at the Oklahoma History Center.
More importantly, the century chest symbolizes how Christians have been entrusted with the Gospel of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. It is God who chooses us, saves us and empowers us with His Holy Spirit to further His work by telling the truth of His life-changing love and forgiveness for all people. We are grateful that we had the opportunity to celebrate not only God's faithfulness and grace which He has given us in the past, but also looking forward to encouraging the faithful who come after us.
