First Lutheran Church of Boston

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>This large congregation has a number of members who drive from out-of-state to attend services each Sunday. As the only Boston-based Missouri Synod Lutheran church, it also attracts college students, especially those from the Midwest, and offers a number of youth programs and service projects for its young population. Bible studies are Sunday mornings and Monday evenings, and students have partnered with organizations like the Charles River Clean-up and Project Bread.</p>
<p>The church also offers Brazilian worship services for its Portuguese-speaking community, and the Blind Ministry supports two local outreach programs: Boston Light of the World and Lutheran Braille Workers.</p> <p>Music is an important part of the congregation, and Balint Karosi, a native of Hungary, leads a traditional organ-based program during services and concert series.</p> <p>The church itself was built in 1956 by Pietro Belluschi, who designed a modern building that would fit in with the historical character of Back Bay. Visitors enter the church through a gateway and private courtyard, which leads to the warm, wood-paneled sanctuary.</p>
