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 and sponsors a concert series featuring our famous Brombaugh pipe organ, which has been cited as a "historically significant instrument." 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!
