First Evangelical Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America which has more than 4 million members according to our Grand Canyon Synod. We are a diverse church family walking with Christ and practicing radical hospitality. Feel free to meet and talk with Pastor Melissa at church.

Our congregation offers fellowship and services Friday nights and Sunday mornings and we have programs for people of all ages including retirees, young adults, and youth. Our services are each unique reflecting our diversity while at the same time relying on our common Evangelical Lutheran Worship. We offer a Spanish language service at 11:15. Tenemos una misa en español a las 11 de la mañana los domingos.

First/La Primera is a Reconciling in Christ congregation and welcomes all people regardless of their race, sex, gender, language, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

We're a welcoming & diverse ELCA congregation: Services: Fri., 7pm, Sun. 9:15 and 11:15am (Español - La Primera). Come as you are!

Gathered to worship! Sent to witness and serve!
