Siberian Lutheran Mission Society Guest Preacher -- On Sunday October 18th, the Rev. B. W. Kuhlman will serve us in preaching and leading Bible study that morning. Rev. Kuhlman serves as pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Murdock, NE. He is a very gifted preacher and teacher and has presented at Higher Things Youth conferences as well as several other venues. During the Bible study time, he will speak about the Siberian Lutheran Mission Society, an organization which seeks to rebuild and restore the Lutheran faith in Russia and surrounding countries where Christianity was suppressed under persecution during Soviet communism. More about the Siberian Lutheran Mission Society can be found at https://siberianlutheranmissions.org/ Do join us for this special day on Sunday, October 18th!

Stewardship Sunday/Wednesday, October 11th/14th -- Be on the lookout for various opportunities to fill out the time/talent/treasure pledge form. We are brainstorming ways to make it easier for those who are not able to attend Stewardship Sunday/Wednesday in person to send in their pledge. It is important for the members of our parish-family to fill out and send in a pledge form – even if they are unable to attend the Service. We formulate a balanced budget based on the numbers we receive from the parish-family. Also, your church is still in need of active participants in the body of Christ who are willing to share their time and talents. Even during COVID, there is much work that still goes on at Christ Lutheran. Please consider how you can be a part of the ministry of your church-family with your fellow believers.

Dear Fellow Redeemed,

"In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." 1 John 4:10-11

John is very explicit about true love. In this beautiful letter we are shown that love is not a feeling or an emotion, but ultimately God. Love therefore is God’s willing sacrifice of His Son on the cross to cover over our sins. Since God has so loved us, we are moved to love one another.

True love is not the stuff of sappy sayings, but God’s action to send His Son to lay down His life for us. Reading 1 John dispels the cultural myths regarding Christianity and points everyone to God’s love for us and then the loving response of Christians toward one another. If you know someone who characterizes Christians as unloving, take the time to read 1 John with them. There it will show them that though Christians are sinful, God would have us to confess our sin, receive His forgiveness and then love one another because He has first loved us. It may take a little time and work, but the words of 1 John are the Words of life! May God bless us by His Word that we might love not in word or talk, but in deed and truth.

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!
