First English Lutheran Church

Positive Loitering

You've heard of loitering, right? We put a spin on the concept of loitering and try to make it positive. We have decided to try to be intentional about meeting our neighbors. We go door to door as ambassadors for our church, introducing ourselves and reaching out to our neighbors and the surrounding community. Join us every Thursday at 4 PM. We meet at the church.

Block Parties
​Once each month during the summer First English joins our partner congregations to host a community block party on a Friday evening. Food, music, games and celebration of community mark our events. Thank you to block party sponsors Bexley UMC, Epiphany Lutheran, and Lord of Life Lutheran.
