First Evangelical Lutheran is home to the Lunch ‘n Listen Music Series, which began in 1979 under the leadership of Dr. Hermann Wolff and continues under the direction of Carol Richert and Susan Russell. This series of monthly noontime free concerts brings hundreds of people into our church to enjoy the talents of regional professional musicians as well as the beauty of our church sanctuary.
All concerts being on the first Wednesday of the month at noon. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. for “brown baggers”. During the concerts, parking is free between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. in the municipal lot across the street, with a reusable permit available in the church lobby. Handicapped parking is available on Catharine St. which runs along the west side of the church.
