About Worship

Christ Lutheran is a congregation of the ELCA.

At Christ Lutheran Church, our worship emphasizes the grace of God that we experience through God’s Word and Sacrament. That grace is revealed to us in community through music, reading the bible, prayer, preaching, and sharing the sacraments of communion and baptism with one another. Our worship, no matter the worship style, is rooted in words and rituals that have been used by Christians for thousands of years. We also use new songs, world music, contemporary words, and new thoughts.

At Christ Lutheran, we know we are all imperfect people. We are sinners who are forgiven and have gathered together to worship God and try to live a life closer to Jesus Christ every day.

We also have online worship options, if you are not able to come in person.

Wherever you are on your faith journey,
we welcome you to worship with us at Christ Lutheran Church!
