About Us

Our congregation is rich in history, originating in the Union Church of New Oxford (Lutheran, Reformed, and Presbyterian) organized in 1822. In January, 1860, we were chartered as the First Evangelical Lutheran Church of New Oxford. From 1860 until 1934, the church building was located on North Peter Street. In 1934, our present building was dedicated. In 1993, the rear of the building was modified to make the building accessible to the handicapped. In 1997 we celebrated our 175th Anniversary.

First Lutheran offers a wide range of programs and activities designed to help individuals and families grow in their faith. We place a strong emphasis on worship and continuing growth

Mission Statement

We at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, New Oxford are a worshiping community of faith.  We share God’s love in Christ Jesus with all people everywhere.

We worship in both Word and Sacrament each Lord’s Day to learn God’s will for us.   We affirm our congregation’s ministries of worship, learning, witness and service; and support it with our prayers, time, and talents.

We provide love, concern, and forgiveness within our community of faith through our witness, to show what the love of God can do.
