Worship resumes to two services at 8am and 10:45am with education hour at 9:15am.

Upcoming Classes

“Introduction to the New Testament for Everyone” is for anyone who would like to become acquainted with more advanced study of the New Testament. The goal of the course is to combine the best scholarly thinking and methods of biblical interpretation with the faith conviction that we are striving to listen to God’s Word, which may at any time challenge us, comfort us, critique us, break us down, or build us up. All students will read and discuss New Testament passages, themes and history. This course will be taught by Bishop S. John Roth. Attendees may participate at Faith Lutheran, Jacksonville, or by Zoom video conference.

Walking the Grief Journey

Grief is not like a trip on an airplane—quick, smooth, and straight as the crow flies.  Grief is a journey on foot—long, at times strenuous, with twists and turns and stopovers.  No matter where you are on your journey of grief, you are invited to a supportive, compassionate small group series for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one.  In this group, each will learn some of their own natural ways of coping with loss, as we seek together God’s strength and guidance on the journey.  

The four-session class will be held at First English Lutheran Church (725 E. Forrest Hill Avenue, Peoria, IL) and will be led by Pr. Ryan H. Anderson.  There are two course options:

Wednesdays (11/13, 11/20, 12/4, 12/11), 6pm to 7:30pm

Thursdays (11/14, 11/21, 12/5, 12/12), 10am to 11:30am

To sign-up, please contact Pastor Ryan at ryan.anderson@felcpeoria.org or 309-685-0337.

Daily Devotional

Do not love the world or the things in the world. The love of the Father is not in those who love the world; for all that is in the world—the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, the pride in riches—comes not from the Father but from the world. – 1 John 2:15-16
