Worship:10:30 AM

The Worship at Christ Lutheran is done in the historical way, utilizing ancient worship forms from places such as North Africa and Jerusalem as found in the Lutheran Service Book.
This type of worship may be very familiar to you, or perhaps not. Simply because it is done in a way that often seems "odd" or "strange" or even (ahem) "boring" to some people, is no reason you should disregard it. When Christians of the last 2,000 years have gathered together, it has always been something that looked VERY DIFFERENT from the world.
It was a time for:
  • Peace
  • Reflection
  • Proclamation
  • Above all, a place of hope!

    The Lord's Supper
    Each Sunday, Christ Lutheran celebrates the Lord's Supper. As a congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, we practice what is called "Closed Communion".
    Closed Communion means we only serve the Lord's Supper to those who have been prepared to receive it properly. We do this as an understanding of 1 Corinthians 11:28ff

    Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.

    We very much would like to serve you this precious gift! It is, however a good practice, that we ensure you have been prepared to receive this gift according to the understanding of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.

    Thank you for respecting our beliefs.

    When you come to Christ Lutheran:
  • Notice the kind people when you arrive
  • Find the Pastor and say hello (If he doesn't see you first!)
  • In the worship services, children are always welcome!!
  • Sunday School and Bible Study are also for everybody!
  • Nobody here is perfect... we all know that we are all people who need the love and forgiveness of Christ.
