Guests and regular guests are always most welcome here at Christ Lutheran! Recently, some regular guests have asked me about how to formally join the congregation. There are several paths to membership. For those who have current Lutheran membership, a Transfer request letter is asked for and sent from our church office to the sending congregation. Those that have been confirmed as Lutheran and whose congregational membership has lapsed are welcome to speak with me about being welcomed into membership by Reaffirmation. For those who are new to the faith, I welcome conversations about Holy Baptism and membership. If you are from a different Christian tradition, we can talk about needed involvement in our next Faith and Congregation Class (FCC) and subsequent Confirmation of Faith. FCC is recommended for all new CLC members since the class reviews the basics of our Christianity and Lutheran denomination and the mission, history, organization, programs, art and buildings of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church. If you have any questions or would like to start a membership process, please contact me, Pr. Ray+, at rrohlfs@Christlutheranorland.com
