First Lutheran Church began shortly after Pastor LeBlanc and his family arrived in Southern California late summer of 1978. After meeting with local residents and a small community of believers, worship services were held at various homes as well as Curtis Middle School while plans for building a church were formulated. In March 1982, a groundbreaking ceremony was held. The building was completed in October 1982 and the first service held in November of 1982.
Under the leadership of Reverend LeBlanc, an addition to the building was proposed and ultimately constructed in early 1989. This addition included an Education and Ministry Center. The new annex was dedicated in December of 1989, and in September of 1990 the FLCC Child Development Center (CDC) opened to serve the community. Many children have attended the center, which molded their lives in a positive manner from 1990 until 2012.
In October of 2018, FLCC celebrated 40 years of worship, service and dedication to God and community. During the anniversary celebration, the Ministry Center was renamed LeBlanc Hall and posthumously dedicated to the memory of Pastor Emeritus, Reverend Raymond LeBlanc for his vision and dedicated ministry.
