Are children welcome in worship?
Yes, children are important members of our congregation at Christ Lutheran Church. Children of any age are welcome in our congregational worship services. Yes, they giggle, they poke, they squirm and swing their legs, because they are children. Children gift us!

Do you have Sunday School?
Yes, you are invited to attend our Education Hour for all ages at 9:15am on Sundays. There is no Education Hour over the summer.
Become a Member
Twice a year, we offer our New Member Class. On a Saturday, we meet to discuss a variety of lively topics, from reading the Bible, to praying, to the Lutheran traditions that make our faith community distinctive. This is a great opportunity to learn alongside other seekers, to ask questions in a supportive and safe environment, and to meet some friendly faces along the way! We follow the class with lunch with your new member sponsor and some of our church leadership. The following Sunday, you are invited to join our faith community during worship. You are always welcome to attend the class even if you aren’t quite ready to join. To learn a little more about us, visit Who We Are.
