Dear Parish-family,

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Tribulation is what we have on this side of eternity. But it will not last forever. Jesus reminds us that He has overcome the world. That means, for us, our time within this world of tribulation is only temporary. God’s peace reigns. We take comfort in knowing that all of the troubles we experience today will come to an end. Take heart, beloved… Jesus gives us life in heaven to come. Thanks be to God!

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!
