Our Journey

Our last worship service at 1008 Jefferson was on July 2, 2017,  and First was officially out of the building on July 7. We began our worship services at Connally-Compton on July 9.  Connally-Compton Funeral Home served as the interim worship location until August of 2018.


Our church office is located at 100 N 6th Street, Ste. 301, which is in the building above Cafe Cappuccino in downtown Waco.


The Relocation Committee has been meeting consistently, as a group, as well with the conregation and other leaders, such as Bishop Gronberg and Rev. Irma Banales.


A Called Congregational meeting was scheduled on July 29, 2018. The congregation voted to move to the Episcopal Student Center (ESC) chapel (1712 S. 10th St.)  near Baylor University for Sunday worship services. Our first Sunday at this location was August 19, 2018.


We are thankful to our Episcopal brothers and sisters for allowing us to share their space with us for this transitional time. We are able to host committee meetings, Bible studies, and Faith in Film in the ESC house.


Relocation Committee continues to look for future options for us and will report back to the congregation at the appropraite time for decisions to be voted on.





Future Plans


This is a monumental time for First Lutheran, as we think about our mission and values so that we can continue to move forward in Christ's mission. Please be involved so that you can play a role during this time of change, transition, and growth.
