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.

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.
