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.

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.
