A Note from the Deacon for Congregational Hospitality and Empowerment

Congregational Hospitality and Empowerment encompasses many aspects of our lives together at Christ Lutheran Church. Under this umbrella, can be found volunteer and visitation ministries, youth and children educational opportunities and special events for all ages. In addition, my work involves resources for seniors in our congregation and community. I am called to Christ Lutheran Church as a Minister of Word and Service (Deacon)in the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America), to serve in this area. Please feel free to contact me about any of the items listed below, and I will be more than happy to connect you with the right people.
