Serving our neighbors is our FIRST priority!
In response to the good news of Jesus Christ
...our vision is to become more diverse, creative, nurturing and welcoming within our congregation and to the wider community.
Founded in 1949, First Evangelical is the oldest Lutheran congregation in what we call the East Valley, which includes Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert and Apache Junction.
We worship Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM
in person in the sanctuary and virtually on Zoom.
First Evangelical Lutheran Church is committed to being a radically loving and welcoming community of faith, centered in the Good News of Jesus Christ. Therefore, in faithfulness to the Gospel and our Lutheran heritage, and to the best of our ability, we promise to provide programs, ministries, and pastoral care to all who seek God in this place. All are welcome here, including persons of every race, ethnicity, creed, class, age, gender, marital status, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”
