At Christ Lutheran we know that all who believe in Jesus Christ are called to follow Jesus and learn from Him. Just as Jesus spent time in prayer, study of Scripture, and learning obedience to the Father in times of calm and storm we seek to develop that pattern in our own lives and encourage it in the lives of others.

Small Groups

 *with Bible Study opportunites

God works through the study of His word, prayer and the togetherness of believers to nourish and transform individuals to be more like Christ. There is no place like a small group for you to experience these things and then take the good news of Christ in you to the world.

We are women who like to read and discuss a variety of books.  We meet the 2nd Wednesday of every month in the library.

Ministry to Men

Forging Christ-centered relationships that strengthen men in our call to lead, serve and minister in our families, workplace, church, community and the world. The heartbeat of Ministry to Men at Christ Lutheran Church is that men are strengthened and encouraged to grow in their walk with God in such a way that they love and lead their families as a Christ-like servant leader. As men, our identities are often in our job or career. We can lose sight of the importance of how vital our walk with God is and how much a relationship with our brothers in Christ can strengthen and encourage us. The Ministry to Men strives to provide regular large group events where all men of CLC and their guests are invited to have fellowship, worship, and hear testimonies from fellow CLC brothers as well as guest speakers whose ministry or story provides biblical wisdom and truth that challenges us to grow as a Christ follower.

Ever feel like you’re on a hamster wheel, quickly getting nowhere? Wish you could live “Life to the Full”? We would like to invite you to join our MOPS and MOMSNEXT meetings where this year’s theme is “Life to the Full”.
This year we will focus on how God intended us to live – fully and abundantly. It’s not about trying to meet endless goals, pleasing everyone around or striving to have it all. Instead, we will leave autopilot behind and focus on remembering it’s okay to slow down, enjoy ourselves and worry less through trusting God more.
We invite you come connect with other moms where we help each other along this journey of motherhood. Together, let’s fear less and have more fun!  We meet the 2nd Monday of every month in the library @ 6:30pm.
MOPS is for mothers of little ones, birth to 6 years, and MOMSNEXT is for mothers of preschoolers and elementary aged children, all who are looking for friendship, encouragement and community. For more information, email

Focused on making and building connections for those 55 years young and up! Meeting every other month, Young at Heart members plan get-togethers, service projects, dinners, socials, day trips, and nights out.
