Welcome to First Lutheran! located on the proud Eastside of St. Paul, Minnesota. it is our hope that those who come, not only experience the sense of deep history in this place, but also the all-embracing feeling of welcome and love that is the challenge of the Church in this century - to reach out beyond our walls and live out the love of Jesus and his breathtakingly simple message: God loves everyone without exception or reservation! We try to live into and wrestle with our Mission Question every day - "Does Love Live Here?" If you would like to know more about the various activities and ministries of this worshipping community, check out this website! Then come visit or call Pastor Chris Olson Bingea if you have questions.
