You have not come to this website by chance. God is at work in your life. So, welcome! Make yourself at home. First English is one church with multiple locations: this website, a beautiful traditional facility near downtown Appleton, a newly-built contemporary facility on the growing edge of town, a thrift store named Echoes, and every place where our members are living out Jesus’ call to love Him and others.
First English Lutheran Church is a nearly 100-year-old Protestant congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Our purpose is this: Love Jesus. Live your call. We welcome ALL people and invite you to participate fully in the life of our congregation.
