Our Parish

First Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church has been proclaiming the Word of God to the greater Pittsburgh area since 1837. We are located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s scenic Oakland and Shadyside neighborhoods, which is home to thousands of families and students at several major colleges and universities. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our home page on the World Wide Web and extend an open invitation for you to join us this Sunday for worship services, Bible study and Christian fellowship.
