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
There comes a point in our lives,
when we need to choose which story we are going to believe in.
When we need to choose which story we hear about ourselves,
about others, about God even, is the true story. The right story. The merciful story.
The story that defines who we are not because of what we have done or left undone,
not because of how our being or our functioning is interpreted and understood by others,
but the story that defines who we are because of grace.
The story that we are enabled to choose
because of the power of Godís grace at work in our lives,
opening our minds to see all that God has planted within us,
all that God has given to nourish us in this life.
And thankfully, what God has given us, is more than crumbs from the table.
