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).

DUE TO RECOMMENDATIONS FROM OUR PRESIDENT TO LIMIT GATHERINGS TO UNDER 10 AND THE MANDATE OF OUR GOVERNOR TO LIMIT GATHERINGS TO UNDER 50 DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS, THERE WILL BE NO PUBLIC CHURCH SERVICES, CLASSES, OR ACTIVITIES UNTIL AT LEAST APRIL 5th at 5:00 PM.

DESPITE THIS, “THE ONE THING NEEDED” REMAINS “THE ONE THING NEEDED"!  WHILE EXCERCISING CARE FOR OUR AND OUR NEIGHBOR’S PHYSICAL WELFARE, WE CERTAINLY DO NOT WANT TO NEGLECT OUR AND OUR NEIGHBOR’S SPIRITUAL WELFARE, WHICH IS, ULTIMATELY, MOST IMPORTANT.  TO THAT END, THOUGH WE ARE UNABLE TO GATHER TOGETHER, REST ASSURED THAT THE MINISTRY OF WORD AND SACRAMENT WILL CONTINUE:    

 

1.    Pastor Mielke will be recording a service and sermon on video and this will be posted on our Facebook page and website before Sunday morning.

2.    Copies of printed sermons and/or audio recordings on compact disc of the service and sermon will be available to those who prefer them.

3.    WELS Daily Devotions will be posted to our Facebook page daily.  There is also a link to these devotions on the webpage.

4.    If the governor’s ban on gatherings over 50 persons is lifted, we may gather for a Palm Sunday service sometime the evening of Sunday, April 5.  Stay posted for more information.

5.    Remember that your pastor remains available for private communion or other pastoral care.  He can be reached at 989-845-2600 or 989-845-5930. 

6.    For the time being, by the governor’s executive order, visitation of persons in hospitals and other health care and residential facilities is prohibited.  A corrective change to this order does allow pastors to serve those critically ill, but only those critically ill.

7.    Some of you have asked how to continue to bring your regular thank-offerings to the Lord and to support His work through His church during this time. 

1)    You may mail them to the church (16070 W. Brady Road, Oakley, MI  48649)

2)   You may use your bank or credit union’s “bill pay service” to have your offerings sent directly to the church.  There is usually no cost to you or the church for this service

3)    You may give your offerings through secure online giving through Faithlife by clicking on this link:   https://faithlife.com/celc-y/give

4)   You may bring your offering to church on Sunday morning between 9:00 and 9:30 AM

5)   You may save your offerings up and bring them with you to God’s house when services resume.

You are encouraged to check our Facebook page or webpage often for any updates.  Plus, if you know someone who doesn’t have access to these sources, please share this information with them.
