Through a ministry of Word and Sacraments and an expanding ministry of traditional sacred music, First Lutheran Church affirms the rich liturgical and musical traditions of Lutheranism and strives to enrich the spiritual life of the metropolitan Christian community of Pittsburgh.

Our worship is enhanced by four ensembles comprised mainly of volunteers from the parish: the Parish Choir and First Church Schola (adult singers), Bel Canto (youth singers), Cantate (children singers), and the Gloria Dei Ringers (handbells). Our song is led by a magnificent 3 manual, 44 rank organ, built by Casavant Frères (click below to read the organ specification, as well as history of the organs that have served our parish).
