Update Regarding COVID-19

Virginia's Governor Ralph Northam announced this week that Phase I of Virginia's reopening will likely occur Friday, May 15, 2020 and that places of worship could potentially reopen at 50% capacity. 

Upon review  and discussion of the statement from Bishop Humphrey of the Virginia ELCA, the decision was made that Christ Lutheran's facilities will remain closed throughout the entirety of Virginia's first phase of reopening. Read the letter from CLC's Council President, Kayley Greenday regarding this decision. 

Staying Connected-Virtually

Even though Christ Lutheran has cancelled all in-person services, events & meetings until at least June 15th, we continue to stay connected to our community through Facebook, YouTube, Zoom and email. Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here at Christ and we invite you to join us virtually until we can all meet together again!
