learn basics of the faith.




All are invited to participate in Starting Point, a 4-week class focused on the basics of our faith. This is specifically for those who've been visiting Christ Lutheran and are considering joining the congregation.

We'll review the basic teachings of the faith from a Lutheran perspective while getting to know each other. Classes are offered in January, March and October during 2023.


Starting Point Registration (MAR 2023)

If you are currently participating in or have already completed our new member class, you'll need to create a member profile so we know how to connect with you!

connect through community.


Small groups connect you to a group of 3 or more people as they meet together and live out their UP, IN and OUT as disciples.This means that we love God, love each other and love our neighbor.

Individuals or couples seeking a small group can complete the small group interest form to get connected with a group leader.
