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
Nothing in this life that we may try to cover up and keep secret
is unseen by the One who’s eyes are always upon us,
by the One who values us beyond compare.
Because what happens when we are hiding is just as important to God
as what happens to us when we want to be seen.
We can be brave because we are known and seen and valued just as we are,
because God’s grace reigns especially when life seems too hard to be brave.
