Pastor’s Welcome

Dear Friends,

On behalf of all of us here at Christ Lutheran Church and Preschool, welcome to our website and an introduction to our family of faith. We hope that this site will draw you into the life and ministry of Christ Lutheran Church, where we are “Growing in faith, Serving our community, and Connecting others to Christ,” as we affirm in our mission statement.

Together, we reach out to serve those in our surrounding communities who are in need, and help one another find meaning, purpose, and joy in life. Our source of strength and love is the love that God has shown each of us in Jesus Christ.  We gather weekly to experience that love in our worship services, and throughout the week in our various ministries, as you will discover in this site.

When you visit Hilton Head Island, we invite you to join us in worship.  We serve the thousands of visitors each year who vacation and enjoy the beauty of the island.  We hope that while you are on the island, whether it’s for a week or a lifetime, you’ll make Christ Lutheran Church your church home.

Each Sunday morning, we gather at 8:30 a.m. for a worship service that follows a “blended” liturgy, and at 10:30 for a traditional Lutheran Mass.  Both services offer Holy Communion and a Children’s Message.  Coffee Fellowship and Faith Formation classes for all ages are offered between worship services, beginning at 9:45 a.m. [Note: Youth Faith Formation is scheduled Sept-May] Every second and fourth Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. [Sept-May], we offer our CONNECTED @ CLC Faith Encounter…an informal gathering in our fellowship hall for believers, seekers, and doubters alike.  We like to refer to this experience as R.E.A.L.: Relational, Experiential, Authentic, and Loving.  We enjoy contemporary Christian music, meaningful and open conversation based on a chosen topic and scripture, and relaxed fellowship.  It’s a “come-and-go-as-you need” experience.

If you’d like to know more about our community or our ministry, please feel free to contact me through the church office, (843) 785-5560 or e-mail at [email protected]

God’s blessings to you, and peace.

Pastor Emil
