Inspirational Worship: Welcome to the Heart of Christ in the City

“Inspirational Worship: Welcome to the Heart of Christ in the City” is the third of four videos that will highlight each area of the mission statement of Christ Lutheran Church.

The mission statement of Christ Lutheran Church is to connect people to Jesus through:

  • Inspirational Worship
  • Loving Service
  • Caring Fellowship
  • Relevant Education

so that they may know, and grow in, his love.

2015 will be our fifth year of Visual Arts Camp at Christ, and our first to offer a fifth day.

The CREATE Week 1 camp will be Monday-Friday, July 6-10 for those just finishing K-5th Grade. The EXPRESS Week 2 camp will be Monday-Friday, July 27-31 for those just finishing 4th-8th Grade. Both weeks will be from 9 am – 12 noon. The daily themes will be Monday – Draw, Tuesday – Sculpt, Wednesday – Paint, and Thursday – Collaborate. On Friday, campers will finish projects and present a Visual A.R.T.S (Artists Recognized 4 Their Superlatives) Program. Registration forms will be available on Saturday, January 3.

Men’s Bible Study – Tuesday, March 3

Capital Area Food Bank – Saturday, March 21

On Saturday, March 21, we will sort and package donations at the Capital Area Food Bank (8201 South Congress Avenue) from 9 am – 12 noon. Volunteering in Product Recovery at the Capital Area Food Bank is a wonderful way to get to know others within our Church family at Christ and to grow in loving service to our community. Volunteers must be 8 and older; maximum of 12 volunteers.

Easter Egg Hunt – Sunday, April 5

Families, we look forward to your presence at our annual Easter Egg Hunt at Christ on Easter Sunday, April 5 from 9:45-10:15 am. We’ll gather in the Fellowship Hall for a devotion and instructions, then walk over to the Christ’s Workshop to watch our infants through 5th Graders search for the hidden treasures nestled on the playscape and around the yard. Please sign up your child(ren) by Palm Sunday, March 29, to participate, to help us plan for how many eggs to prepare with treats and trinkets.
