We are blessed by a great cloud of witnesses who support the good work being done in our corner of the kingdom of God. We are thankful for the friends, partners, and congregations who share of their time, energy, and resources. If you will take a moment and look around, we think you will find a great number of ways to reach out to First Lutheran, from simple prayer, to meals, to donations of clothing, to estate gifts. Thank you; simply by visiting this page, you show you care enough to give of your time. Consider a gift today. Not only does your gift go to a vibrant ministry, but gifts are also tax deductible. We thank you for your gift, but most of all we thank you for your partnership in the gospel!

Below you will find two methods of supporting First Lutheran financially. The first option is Paypal. If you wish to use a credit or debit card, we pay higher fees on the transaction, but appreciate your gift no less. We understand that this is easier for some people, which is why we use it!

The second method is through GivingTools. Using this method, it is just like giving to First with a check. You can use this to set up recurring gifts at an interval of your choosing. You have two options to designate using this method – either to the General Fund so that we can pay the bills and go out and Share the Love of God, or to the Capital Campaign Fund (On Track and Resolute) so we can restore our historic building.

Feel free to contact us by phone (513) 421-0065 or by e-mail at if you have any questions. 



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.
