Given the recent CDC guidelines of limiting 10 people to a gathering we are suspending normal services at Christ Lutheran Church.  We are going to post the liturgy for the weekly 9:30 am Sunday worship service on the church website  and stream the 9:30 am Sunday service on Facebook.

Live streaming of Sunday 9:30 am service can be viewed on the Christ Lutheran Facebook page at:

You can also view videos of recent services from the "Video" box on our website home page.
