Special Christmas Services

Christmas Even Candlelight Worship, 5:00 pm and 10:00 pm in the sanctuary. All are welcome to come join us as we celebrate the birth of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.


I greet you on behalf of all those who call First Lutheran “home” and invite all of you who seek a “church home” to explore our website and come meet us in person. We are a vibrant urban church with a long history of serving Christ in Tacoma’s Wright Park neighborhood since 1882.

Christ’s ministry at First Lutheran takes many forms. We worship in the ever-expanding Lutheran tradition; we hear God’s Word and proclaim Christ as the Lord of our lives; we walk as children of light through our many social ministry projects; we receive inspiration through God’s gifts of living Word, baptism, weekly Communion and mutual love shared with each other and our guests. We’re glad you found us. Now, come join us as followers of Jesus Christ!
