Upcoming Events

Free Buffet Breakfast

Sunday, May 19, 2019, 8:00-10:15am

Every third Sunday, between September and May, Christ Lutheran Church offers members and guests a full-course breakfast between 8 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. The breakfast includes scrambled eggs, sausage, French toast, pancakes, potatoes, fruit, cereal, baked goods, and beverages. The meal is offered at no charge, but donations are welcome.
The idea of the monthly breakfasts was initiated several years ago by Lee Wagner and Dale Hazel. They quickly recruited a spirited crew of cooks and assistants who arrive at 7 a.m. to prepare the breakfasts. Members of the crew include Lee and Dale, Lou Savant, Chris Myers, Kurt Rank, Kevin Gough, Mark Stana, Tim Feather, Matt Sterner, and Dave Willard.
Come and enjoy a delicious breakfast along with worship and adult education on Sunday, May 19. This is the last breakfast that will be served before the summer break. It’s the perfect time to invite friends to experience the faith, food, and fellowship at Christ Lutheran.
A big “thank you” from the breakfast guys for the congregation’s attendance and support!

“Embracing an Alternative Orthodoxy” Father Richard Rohr on the Legacy of St. Francis

Join Pastor Phil in the church library every Sunday, 9:45 am to 10:45 am. Extend your hour of worship with an hour of Adult Christian Education.

“Embracing an Alternative Orthodoxy” Father Richard Rohr on the Legacy of St. Francis.

Topics:

Atonement Theology — Why did Jesus die?
Eco-spirituality — What does it mean for humanity to “Subdue” the earth?
The Cosmic Christ — God in all things
Orthodoxy vs. Orthopraxy — The difference between correct belief and correct practice of faith
Mysticism — Having a faith in which you sense a oneness with God, others, and creation

“The people who know God well, the mystics, hermits, prayerful people, those who risk everything to find God, always meet a lover not a dictator.” ~ Richard Rohr

These topics will be addressed thru a DVD presentation and work books for each participant. Join Pastor Phil as we delve deeply into these relevant topics of faith, life and the future of Christianity.
