The church year continues with Lent, when the church's worship assumes a more penitential character as we prepare for Jesus Christ's death on the cross on Good Friday and glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Our Lenten theme this year, based on the Gospel according to St. Mark, will examine how the various people around Jesus viewed him--and how we should view Him.  We will "fix our eyes" on what Jesus has done to save us from our sins by His holy, precous blood an innocent sufferings and death, and celebrate what God sees on account of His work:  our justification for His sake.

In the Name of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior, it is a pleasure to have you visit our website.

Christ Lutheran is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. We conform to the Word of God in doctrine and practice.  We offer Christ-centered worship through traditional liturgy and the proclamation of Grace alone, Scripture alone, and Faith alone.

 As Lutherans, we profess to be "Confessional." Christ Lutheran Church holds to the Lutheran Confessions as the correct interpretation and presentation of Biblical doctrine. Contained in The Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, these statements of belief were put into writing by church leaders during the 16th century. (The simplest of these is Luther's Small Catechism.) The Augsburg Confession gives more detail on what Lutherans believe. 

Our parish is diverse in age and background and we invite you to attend family-oriented Sunday morning or Wednesday evening worship services, events, and other opportunities as a guest or to join us as a member of our church family.  More information on Christian education, youth activities, opportunities to get involved with the church, as well as visiting, communing, and joining can be found here.

 We invite you to explore our site and contact us if you have any questions.

May the Lord of the Church bless you in all you do!
