Who We Are at a Glance...
The first church service was in 1970 and was sponsored by the American Lutheran Church (which became part of the ELCA in 1988). The founding pastor, Myron Lindblom, retired in 1978, and Rev. Jerry Castleman became pastor in 1979. Pastor Castleman continued at Christ Lutheran until his retirement in May of 2011- a 32 year ministry here.
Sunday worshippers number on average about 350 adults and children. Those who are already Lutheran, and wish to join Christ Lutheran, are given an opportunity learn about the life and mission of our ministry. Those who have not previously belonged to a Lutheran church are provided more sessions to become acquainted with the Lutheran perspective within the Christian family.
