  • Welcome to First Lutheran Church of Lake Elsinore, California, pastored by Rev. Kevin Kolander

    Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand! -Romans 5

    We Lutherans are Christians who realize that we are sinners in need of a Savior. We gather at this church united by Christ, under the inspired Word of God, to celebrate this message that God has given to us and the world: God sent His precious Son to die on the cross to save every person from the penalty of death. Jesus brings us faith & everlasting life as He also provides for all of our wants of body and soul. Each Sunday we receive and celebrate the gifts God has given us: the sacraments of baptism and communion, the means of our forgiveness. We welcome you to worship with us.

    Join us Sunday morning at 9am for Bible class and 10:30am for worship.

In Sunday School today students learned the story “Jesus Calls Matthew.” We sinners rejoice, for we, too, have been called from our own pigsty of sin to dine with Jesus around His table, and to be a friend of the friend of sinners. Consider discussing, “How did Jesus call Matthew to be one of His followers? How and why does Jesus call us to follow Him?”

Today in Sunday School we study the calling of Jesus’ first disciples with “Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael.” In Jesus, access to heaven is given to all who believe. You might discuss, “How did Philip and Nathanael know that Jesus was the Christ? How do we learn that Jesus is the Christ?”

The Baptism and temptation of Jesus serve as the lesson focus for Sunday School this week. Jesus is baptized into and takes on our sin, and faces our temptations so we, in Baptism, would receive His goodness, His holiness, and His purity. Parents could ask, “Why is it important that Jesus was baptized? Why is it important that we are baptized?”

In Sunday School today, the lesson was about the boy Jesus in the temple (Luke 2:41–52). As a boy, Jesus was found in His Father’s house. In God’s house I hear His Word, see that Jesus is my Savior, and receive His gifts of forgiveness and salvation. Because of sin, we are like Jesus’ parents and do not understand what Gods says to us. We don’t recognize who Jesus truly is—our Savior. Talk about: “How do we know that Jesus is God’s Son and our Savior? How does our Baptism and the power of God’s Word help us see this?”

Romanino Girolamo (Italian artist, c 1484-ca 1559). Presentation of Jesus in the Temple - 1529.

On this First Sunday after Christmas, the Sunday School lesson focuses on “The Presentation of Jesus.” In the
Divine Service, we join with Simeon and Anna, the angels and archangels, and the great cloud of witnesses in
heaven and on earth hailing Christ as the fulfiller of the Law. Parents might ask, “Where do we sing our praises to
God? How has Christ fulfilled the Law for us?”
