FLC Waco is moving to online worship services until further notice in response to ongoing concerns over COVID-19. See below for Pastor Austin Nickel's letters and devotionals in these difficult times.


Austin's letter to the congregation:

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


Grace and peace to you all,


After much prayer, discernment, and discussion with leadership it has been decided that First Lutheran Church of Waco will not hold services or public gatherings until further notice, this includes Sunday worship. With the ever growing realities of the new Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) unfolding we think it best for the well being of our members and friends to take this step as a safety precaution.


At this time we must not panic, but take the necessary precautions in caring for ourselves and for our neighbors. This includes washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds and staying in if you are sick. This action is one made out of love, for the care and wellbeing of us all. For now take care of yourselves and know that we will keep you posted as to what is going on. And of course I am keeping us all in prayer, I am available to you if you need me, to talk, pray, or discuss whatever is on your mind. Don’t hesitate to give me a call. God is with us and will see us through.


In Christ,


Austin Nickel
