A place of community.

The primary purpose of First English Evangelical Lutheran Church is to our mission and ministry of sharing the love of God. First Lutheran seeks to serve the Cincinnati metropolitan area and to partner with others in that community. First Lutheran has a number of longstanding relationships with community organizations for ongoing use of our historic building.

Local organizations and individuals for one-time or short-term may use First Lutheran’s facility. When possible, we make our facility available for community groups such as yours. Our first priority, however, is to our ministries, programs, and members’ needs. Priority is then given to nonprofit groups that are supported by First Lutheran and finally to other nonprofit organizations.

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.
