What to Expect

Welcome! Whether you are in town for just a visit or new to the area looking for a permanent church home, you are welcome at Christ Lutheran.  Join us for Worship any Sunday.  Your presence at our services is God’s gift to us and we hope to provide you with a spiritually uplifting experience.

Christ Lutheran Church Main Entrance


Dress is casual. You’ll see people wearing everything from casual clothing to jackets and ties. 


We have ample parking and there are 4 parking spaces reserved just for visitors. 


The main entry to the church is through any of the four red doors under the covered porch. This leads to the space we call the commons area. 


When you enter the commons, an usher will greet you, provide you with a copy of our bulletin containing the order of the worship service and answer and any questions you might have. 

Coffee, tea, water and an assortment of pastries are available on a table in the commons before and after each service, so please help yourself!   

Worship Space

Our worship space is located through the double doors from the commons. Feel free to sit wherever you would like. The racks on the pews contain visitor information cards that will provide you with more information about CLC and the worship service.

Holy Communion

Since it is the focus of our worship liturgy, Holy Communion is offered at each worship service (with rare exception).  All people of faith are welcome to receive communion as we gather at the altar in the front of the sanctuary to receive bread and wine. To meet dietary needs we offer wine, grape juice and a choice of gluten free bread.  You can make your choice known to the Pastor and Assisting Minister as they approach you at the altar. 


Children are welcome at our services! We offer children’s bulletins and "busy bags" to keep younger attendees engaged in the worship experience; the bags are located on racks outside of each doorway to the sanctuary.  Children may also join Pastor Ralph in a children's sermon during the service.

A nursery with a baby changing table is located in the education wing. A television is located in the library (St. John room), in the Commons for viewing the service.
