The Community We Serve

First Lutheran is very unique in that our Church serves ten communities. Agriculture is a common thread running through each community; however, most families are two-income families. With two major cities close by, Omaha and Lincoln, the movement to smaller communities has generated growth in our area.

Our location is on Hwy. 50, just 3 miles south of the Hwys. 34 and 50 corner (6 miles north of Syracuse). We’re surrounded by a landscape of rolling pastures and cropland, situated on a six acre hilltop that is blessed with a view of those beautiful Nebraska sunsets. You’re welcome to drop by during the week and walk the grounds for meditation and prayer. If you happen to pass by at night, you’ll see the cross of Christ atop the church, shining in the darkness. The cross can be seen for miles, enfolding travelers and nearby homes with Christ’s presence and peace.
