Many Nations ; One Savior
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish, but have everlasting life."
John 3:16 (KJV)
To carry this Gospel, this Good News, to all the World, just as Jesus Himself dwelt among us, God's Family is called to be "Street Saints" to the hurting people of this world.

Pastor Christopher Schaar's long anticipated book on the Symbolism
of Historic First Lutheran
is finally in print !
The book starts the story of the church building standing on Los Robles Ave. and walks all the way through the Sanctuary right up to the Altar, telling about ALL the symbolism hidden in the building itself -- a silent sermon in stucco, wood, and glass. There are 33 color photos (plus the cover compilation of all the stained glass) as well as some 15,000 words (78 pages) and over 150 Scripture references. The book has been a dream in the making for over 10 years!
The book is available for $25 from Amazon,
or personalized, autographed copies are available for $20 directly from Pastor Schaar.
