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.
Worship is the heart of our ministry and mission. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper everySunday 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 amand in recording on our YouTube channel.Here are videos of some of our evening services.
First Lutheran Church is located at 5745 Wales Street in East Vancouver (at the corner of East 42nd Avenue and Wales Street—and Wales is six blocks east of Victoria Drive and three blocks west of Rupert Street—see map).

Quote of the week
It is in the desert of Lent that we are led by our God to see.
In the desert, we are called to the middle of the valley to watch and see.
To watch and see what happens when God opens our graves,
and brings to life something within us, something within our core,
something that we thought was certainly dead,
that we thought could never live.
And when the life-giving breath of God breathes into us anew,
breathes into our dry and weary bones, breathes into our core,
breathes into the deadened parts of our souls
and commands us to come out of our graves,
we cannot help but live.
