First Lutheran is a community centred on the grace and steadfast love we all receive through Christ Jesus. We are a welcoming community who seek to extend a radical hospitality to our neighbours and friends. We are a gathering of people of diverse ages, cultures, and traditions, a community that seeks to extend love and grace with one another.

All are welcome here, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation; regardless of social, economic, educational, or linguistic status; regardless of citizenship, religious, or cultural background; regardless of relationship status or family make-up; and regardless of physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual condition.

There is a place for you in our community worship, service, and life. There is a place for you-no matter where you are at in life. Come, just as you are.

Service Schedule

Worship is the heart of our ministry and mission. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper every Sunday at the morning at 10:30 am. Our morning service is available online as well via live webcast which  goes on air at around 10:25 am and in recording on our YouTube channel. Here are videos of some of our evening services.

On Mondays at 7:15 pm we are open for Centering Prayer. 7:30 pm on Thursday evenings is our Choir time.

How to find us

Quote of the week

We are all invited to live out a story of resistance, a story of triumph, a story of rising after being oppressed. A story of freedom. A story where we are victors and not oppressors. A story where there is something more for us than the reality of living in systems where an imbalance of power and suffering is normalized. Although we are promised comfort in the midst of our suffering, we are also promised that there is much we can do to relieve suffering.

Christ Jesus has given you all of the grace that you need to see, to believe in and share Godís great love story for us, and to rise and live a life free from the lies of oppression.
