We took this Sacred Sunday shot of the First Lutheran Church before the the big snowstorm hit Greensboro on Friday. When the leaves are on the trees, the church is almost invisible-- even though it is in a prime location at Friendly Avenue near Holden Road. This view, taken across the street on Friendly Avenue shows the dramatic roofline. The church is dynamic, inviting, and busy every hour from morning into the evening, hosting everything from Girl Scout meetings to 12 step programs to prayer circles.
Unlike Ebenezer Lutheran with its full history online, the history of the First Lutheran Church is not available on their website. Even more confusing is that First Lutheran doesn't appear to be the FIRST Lutheran Church built in Greensboro. One would assume that when a church calls itself First Baptist, First Presbyterian, First Lutheran that it is, chronologically, the FIRST of the denomination built in a given town. If anyone knows the date First Lutheran was built, please let us know. Since the snowstorm has immobilized the city, we probably won't get by to investigate firsthand!!!!
