Welcome to our community!

We acknowledge that we gather, worship, work and play on the unceded and ancestral lands of the Musqueam,

Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. We are committed to learning and raising awareness of our country's historical

relationship with the the First Peoples and continue to work towards true Reconciliation. 

There is a place for you in our community no matter who you are or where you are at in life.

Come, just as you are.

We are committed to being a welcoming church that is opposed to discrimination against any person on any basis.

We seek to extend hospitality to our neighbours and friends and 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.

First Lutheran is a community of diverse cultures and traditions that seeks to extend love and grace to one another.

We are centered on the grace and steadfast love we all receive through Christ Jesus.   As human beings, filled with God’s Holy Spirit and trusting in Jesus Christ as our Saviour, we believe we are sent to care for the whole of creation and to bear witness to God’s love for the world by serving, supporting and encouraging all who are in need.

 

We are a *Reconciling in Christ Community, welcoming into full membership and ministry people of all sexual orientations and gender identities (lesbian, gay, bisexual, two spirit, trans and queer).

 We are in the BC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC).
