ADVENT/CHRISTMAS The Time of Christmas begins with the season of Advent. Advent is from a Latin word meaning “coming,” and its emphasis is on the preparation for the coming of Christ. The mood of Advent is one of hope, anticipation and preparedness. The themes of Advent don’t just remind us of Jesus’ birth. They also focus our attention on the coming of our Lord on the Last Day in glory. Christmas begins on December 24th, the Eve of the Nativity of Our Lord, and continues through January 5th . For the Church, Christmas is not a date on the calendar, but rather an entire season to be celebrated.

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!
