  • Sunday Worship

    During the school year, Christ Lutheran Church offers two different worship experiences, tailored to what you and your family need. 

    The Contemporary Worship Service is a kid-friendly service geared toward time-crunched families on a tight schedule. This 8:30 am worship offers a contemporary look and feel. The music style, worship elements and everything about service reaches out to busy families. They can worship with their family, and still have time to meet their kids’ scheduled commitments.

    The Traditional Worship Service speaks to those who want to take it easy on Sunday mornings, sleep in, ease into their day, and then attend worship at 10am. This worship has a traditional feel, reflected by familiar hymns, accompanied by the Adult Choir and Bell Choir. It’s for those people who want to re-connect with the type of worship they grew up with. It will be a time of familiar music, liturgy and song, with a message geared toward their life challenges. 


    Visitors can get an idea of what to expect, a statement of the tenets of communion, and a brief explanation of the cycle of readings.

    Christ Lutheran Church offers a nursery, Children's Church, and Sunday School.
