Fire at First Lutheran
There was a fire at First Lutheran on Thursday, August 28. The latest information on the fire, including pictures and information on how to donate, has been moved to a separate page on this site.
Next Sunday, September 7, will be Rally Day. There will be a Sunday School kickoff at 9:00am in the school across the street from the church. Worship will follow at 10:00, also in the school. Our neighborhood block party will take place at noon.
The regularly scheduled food pantry will still take place on September 11, 10:00am-noon.
to First Lutheran Church
First Lutheran is a congregation of the ELCA, located at the corner of 6th and Washington in the heart of downtown Lorain, Ohio. First Lutheran has a tradition of musical excellence, anchored by our late Brombaugh pipe organ. First Lutheran also has a tradition of serving our community, and sponsors programs which provide food, shelter, clothing, and other assistance to those in need.
We'd like you to be part of our community!
There are many ways to be involved at First Lutheran, from worshipping on Sundays to attending a class to helping pack food for the hungry. By joining together to share our gifts, we can make a difference.
