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.

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.
