Upcoming Events

  • Joint Reformation Service October 29 and Advent's Anniversary Dinner November 5
    We will hold our annual Anniversary Dinner on Sunday, November 5, starting 6:00 p.m. See Brit Missirlian or Judy Baribeau for details. Proceeds from the dinner will go to our Outdoor Lighting Fund. It is a week later this year so that everyone can attend the October 29 joint Reformation Service.
    The Reformation Service will be on Sunday, October 29, 2:00 p.m. at St. James Anglican Cathedral, 65 Church Street, Toronto. The service will be followed by a procession to First Lutheran Church where the celebration will conclude about 4:30 p.m.

Donations and Pledges

The Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) program is a convenient way to support our congregation's mission through monthly automatic debits. Here's how to participate:
  1. Download the Pre-Authorized Remittance Form.
  2. Decide on a monthly donation amount as well as how you would like your donation to be allocated between Current, Benevolence, and Other. Some examples of Other initiatives are the Mortgage (Parking Lot) and Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR).
  3. Return the signed form along with a void cheque to any member of council.
You can find out more about the PAR program here.
