Daily Prayer Journal

Our congregation is embarking on an exciting journey. God is pointing us to a new destinations we’ve only dreamed about until now. And he’s calling each of us to become leaders. But to lead, we need a map. God’s map.

Join us for 20 days in reflection and prayer as we ponder “God’s Gracious Invitation.” This prayer journal devotional is available on the "From the Pastors" page.

Why talk about growth?

It’s in our DNA. Through consistently sharing God’s Word in the language of today, God has blessed Christ Lutheran to become a Top Ten* congregation. Worship and program attendance, campus parking, and facilities have doubled in the past 10 years. And we believe that God’s vision for Christ Lutheran is to be “still growing so none are turned away!”

So, join us and:

  • PRAY God will continue to shower His blessings on Christ Lutheran,
  • STAY Connected, Grow as a Disciple, Serve in Ministry and Go Share Jesus Christ.
  • HELP move Christ Kids Child Care out of the portables to allow for improved safety, and help provide additional spaces for a growing Children’s Ministry, School, Staff, Counseling, Music Ministry, Adult Education, and the Christian Arts.
  • SUPPORT the Purchase of Land to build a South Campus Worship & Child Care facility.


* Top Ten: Currently Christ is the 7th largest worshiping congregation within the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod

The first 4-year appeal will focus on raising $5M to $10M or more. Our feasibility study indicated at least $5.2M is very doable by our congregation, but we would each need to s-t- r-e- t-c- h to reach $10M+ without going into additional debt. Such support may come from our regular increased tithes & offerings, debt retirement special gifts, grants from Christian foundations, a child care business plan, and faith legacy bequests from current and past members or guests of Christ Lutheran.

  • We do this 4-ALL to know Jesus Christ as their Lord.
  • We do this 4-NOW to alleviate immediate ministry growth needs.
  • And we do this 4-EVER in preparation for the next generation.
