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
God lives in and through us.
God is made known through the Love
that is revealed in the very fabric of our beings,
the Love that pumps through our hearts, that flows through our veins,
and inspires our thoughts and our emotions and our actions
to inspire us to live out our purpose in, through, and for Love.
Our purpose in life is quite simple: LOVE.
And Godís purpose in our life is to keep on us to share love.
To nudge us. To bring discomfort when we need it.
Because how else will we get out of our cocoon to fly?
How else will we have the courage to face a tough crowd?
