Welcome!

Continually refreshed by the fountain of God's love in Christ Jesus, we of the Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church are sent by the Holy Spirit to direct that flow into the lives of our neighbors so that they too might be refreshed. All worship services at Christ Church are open to the public and the congregation welcomes visitors to worship on Sundays.

Outside Campus

Join us for worship at 30 Chambersburg Street.

Sunday morning worship services are based on the liturgy found in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship book.

The informal Sunday evening Celtic worship service draws on the rich Celtic spiritual and musical tradition. Visiting musicians are invited to bring their instruments and join with the resident Celtic Ensemble. A rehearsal of the evening's music is held at 5:00 PM in the sanctuary and worship with Holy Communion begins at 6:00 PM. Services are held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.

Each Sunday from Labor Day through Memorial Day we offer Christian Education classes for all ages at 9:15 AM and a Fellowship Hour on the third Sunday of each month following the 10:30 service.

ASHES TO GO!... This Ash Wednesday Christ Lutheran and St. James Lutheran Church are offering ashes around the square in Gettysburg as a reminder that need, humility, and healing shouldn’t be confined to a church building. We probably need it more when we are in the middle of our daily business! God meets us not just in worship, but in the midst of life, and we offer the opportunity to make space for Faith and to return to God for those whose schedules make it hard to stop and pray with others today.
