A sacred space meant for sharing.

Since our beginning more than 121 years ago First Lutheran Church has been a space for the community to gather. As the Over-the-Rhine community changes around us we continue to honor our heritage by hosting a variety of events throughout the year. From the Cincinnati Fringe Festival to the May Festival Chorus as well as community organizations like the young business leaders we welcome many groups into our unique space.

The purpose of First is to


We are a beautiful collection of people from all corners of the city. We are single, married, widowed, and divorced. We are day laborers, artists, construction workers, professionals, unemployed, children of all ages, and stay-at- home parents. Above all, we are all beggars needing the love and grace of God found in Jesus.

Wherever you are on your faith journey, whether you are committed to following Jesus Christ, are skeptical, or are just mildly curious about Christianity, we welcome you.
