Welcome to First Lutheran!  Let’s start at the beginning – God loves you!  First Lutheran is all about God’s love.  We celebrate God’s good news for us and for all people – so we worship, pray, study, share, serve beyond self and seek to be generous people.  All because of God’s love.

Whether you have questions or doubts (we all have questions and doubts) – we give thanks that you are here and we hope that you will find First Lutheran Church to be a welcoming place for you to explore and connect with God and God’s people.

We hope to see you at worship and look forward to meeting you!
~ Reverend Richard Rhoades Pastor, First Lutheran Church in Galveston

Continue The Tradition!


In 1850, God called a small group of people in Galveston, Texas, to witness and minister in Christ's name to this port city on the Gulf of Mexico.

A few faithful people planted and nurtured seeds that grew into what First Evangelical Lutheran Church is today.

Throughout the generations, people of faith and hope have responded to God's call and have overcome many obstacles to erect buildings for ministry to allow people to meet, share, and bolster their faith in God.

We welcome you to come and visit with us and grow through love, mercy, forgiveness, and compassion as we serve one another and the community of Galveston.


Thank You!
