Christ Lutheran Church was established in August 1990. At that time, we met in the Multi-purpose Building in Fairfield Glade. Over years, we have built a church building and expanded it to meet an increasing membership. Today we number over 270 members as we continue to grow. In addition to the church building, our grounds include a Columbarium for the cremains of our members.
We are a member church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. We confess the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching we trust the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. All are welcome here!
The beautiful windows of Christ Lutheran Church are made of faceted glass. Inch thick pieces of glass are hand cut, flat on one side and faceted on the other. The pieces are set in a matrix of epoxy and silicon that holds it together and provides part of the design. This contemporary style of stained glass came from Germany in the post World War I I era. The windows of so many churches had been destroyed and there wJas no leaded glass. The windows are designed in panels that are each mounted inside the regular window, thus providing protection for the design and extra insulation. Click here to read more...
In September 1995, a trust agreement was made with the church and the Columbarium Board of Trustees, and construction on the Columbarium on Christ Lutheran's property began shortly after that. The Columbarium has a total of 160 niches, 130 of which have been purchased. Interment in the Columbarium is open to church members and immediate family members; others who are interested may consult Pastor Groce for exception.
This beautiful spot is truly a peaceful resting place.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with nearly 3.3 million members in more than 8,900 worshiping communities across the 50 states and in the Caribbean region. We are a church that walks by faith, trusting God's promise in the gospel.
