First Lutheran Church especially welcomes students, faculty, and staff of our neighborhood’s colleges and universities, including Point Park University, Duquesne University, The Art Institute, and the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC).

As a part of our campus ministry outreach, First’s young adult group (ages 18-35ish) includes undergraduate and graduate students, as well as working professionals. We gather for friendship, service projects, and faith explorations such as book studies and retreats. Many of our young adults are deeply involved in the wider ministry of First, regularly serving in choirs, on committees, and in liturgy.
