First Trinity | St. Matthew DC and First Trinity Lutheran Church

Welcome to First Trinity 

We are a community in Christ loving and serving our neighbors


SUNDAYS at 10:00 AM 


Virtual Resources

During the pandemic caused by COVID-19, we are offering online-only resources and events throughout the week including Sunday worship at 10am. Please see our Events page for details.



If you would like to be a virtual worship assistant we could use help reading lessons and technical aspects of worship! When we come back together in person, we will need many hands to help with Sunday worship! Whether that's as sacristan, worship assistant, greeter, or social media. Let us know what you can help with, by emailing

First Trinity is a Reconciling in Christ Congregation! 

Affirming we are all one in Christ Jesus in the midst of our diversity (Galatians 3:28) and recognizing that society and the church at large often exclude and hurt LGBTQIA+ individuals, we affirm the following: that people of all sexual orientations and gender identities share the worth that comes from being unique individuals created by God; that people of all sexual orientations and gender identities are welcome within the membership of this congregation upon making a common, public affirmation of faith; and that as members of this congregation, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities are expected and encouraged to share in the sacramental and general life of this congregation.
