WELCOME to the Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church and School website!  

If you are looking for a church home, please consider visiting us in person!  We would love the opportunity to get to meet you!

As men, women, and children united in faith and worship by the Word of God, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church and School exists to make disciples throughout the world for time and eternity (Matthew 28:18-20), using the Gospel to win the lost for Christ (1 Corinthians 9:19) and to nurture believers for lives of Christian service (Ephesians 4:11-16), all to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 1:31).

COVID-ERA COURTESIES AND PRACTICES

Just as we preach and teach by The Book (the Bible) for the sake of our spiritual health, we also want to conduct public worship "by the book," that is, employing the best of practices from the Centers for Disease Control for the sake of our physical health. (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/faith-based.html).  We want all worshipers to feel comfortable and be able to focus on Christ, not Covid, in the Divine Service. 

1.  If you have any symptoms (cough, congestion, fever, etc.) please stay
     home and make use of the online options.  
2.  If are under 14-day quarantine because of close contact with someone
     with the virus, please stayhome and make use of the online options
     during that time.  
3.  If you are in a high risk category for the virus, and have been advised by
     your physician to avoid public places and gatherings, we encourage you
     to do so.  Until you are able to resume in-person worship, we offer
     options to help you remain connected to God's Word. Also, remember
     that the Lord's Supper -is available on an individual basis by contacting
     the pastor.
4.  Please maintain a distance of six feet from those not of your own 
     household. Seating has been marked to provide for adquate social
     distancing. 
5.  Please wear a mask as you are entering and exiting and when singing. 
6.  Worship Guides and other handouts are available on a "help yourself"
     basis.  The worship guide is also available electronically on this website.
7.  Hand sanitizer is located in the entry-way.  You are encouraged to use
     some as you enter and exit.  
8.  Offering plates will not be passed during the service, but are located at
     the entrance to the sanctuary.  Online giving is also available on this
     website.           
9.  Our cleaning procedures have been revised to reflect the best practices
     recommended by the CDC.
10. Holy Communion continues to be offered on the second, fourth, and fifth
     weeks of the month, with some modifications. The Sacrament will be
     prepared with mask and disposable gloves worn. The Sacrament will be
     received in a modified "continuous distribution" with both the wafers
     and wine in individual containers to be taken by the communicant. At this
     time, the "common cup" will not be offered.  Hand sanitizer will be
     available for use before and after communing. 

Videos of the weekly worship service and Bible class are available at "Audio/Visual Dowloads" on the side menu

Worship Guides and Sermon Manuscripts are available at "Document Downloads" on the side menu

We are resuming our regular Church Cleaning schedule. It is very important that our facilities are cleaned carefully each week.  Please check the Cleaning Roster on the bulletin board for your scheduled date. You will also receive a"Cleaning Duties" print-out in the mail, outlining areas to be cleaned and products to be used. School Cleaning will resume for the week ending August 30. If you wish, you may use gloves and face-masks provided in the cleaning closet. Please note that special attention is to be paid to frequently touched surfaces such as door knobs/handles, light switches, faucets, sinks, toilets, and backs of pews. If you require a sub to clean for you, please notify Lorraine Goward. Thank you.
