Mission of 1st Lutheran Church & School

Recognizing the call of our lord Jesus Christ to “go and disciple all nations”, First Evangelical Lutheran Church and School of Fort Smith, Arkansas, will equip the members of the congregation and students of the day school to be disciples of Christ while reaching out to bring others to be followers of the lord Jesus – that all may have abundant life now, as well as life eternal, through God glorifying worship, the grace-delivering word and sacraments, gospel-centered education, and Christ-like acts of caring.


Vision of 1st Lutheran School

1st Lutheran School provides a Christ-centered, family-focused, student-driven education impacting our community and world.
