First Lutheran Church

is a congregation of the ELCA, located in the heart of downtown Lorain, Ohio. First Lutheran has a tradition of musical excellence which includes the FIRST•music concert series, and also has a tradition of serving our community, including programs which provide food, shelter, clothing, and other assistance to those in need. Our worship services are at 9:30 every Sunday morning.


We'd like you to be part of our community!

There are many ways to be involved at First Lutheran, from worshiping 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.
