Our Mission Statement:

Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church:

By God’s grace the Holy Spirit leads us

to love all and serve all.

Children and their families are central to the ministry of Christ Church.  Children are always welcome in worship.  In the cry of a baby, or the fussiness of a toddler, we hear a new voice that speaks to god, reminding us that children are a blessing and a joy.  A nursery staffed with a caring member of this congregation is also available for children five-years old and younger.

The Pastor's Discretionary Fund is low on money to help those in need in our community.  If you are able to help, please make your check payable to the Discretionary Fund.





SKILLS REQUIRED: Ability to use scissors

AGES: 13-103


The goal of the workshop will be to learn techniques that can be used to produce

elegant banners for congregational use. A 30” x 60” banner will be created from a pattern provided by the instructor. (Other sizes available if arranged in advance.)

Many options will be presented for banner construction. Sewing skills are NOT

required. Sewing options will be discussed, but the entire banner can be completed using no-sew techniques.

The banner can be a single person or a group project.


“He has done marvelous things,” Psalm 98:1 with imagery from the hymn “Earth and All Stars” (731 ELW, 558 LBW). An alternate theme can be used by advanced request.
