Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, New Baltimore, MI
Welcome to Christ Lutheran Church! At Christ, we are Lutheran in doctrine and practice through and through and we are proud of it! We pray that you are strengthened and sustained through Word and Sacrament ministry here. The Divine Service here (Sundays @ 9AM) is both reverent and uplifting. We follow the historic liturgy and practice the traditions passed down by the saints before us. We see them as incredible treasures that center our worship experience on the most important reality of all, Christ crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2). We also understand that the Word of God and the Sacraments (Baptism, Confession & Absolution, and the Lord’s Supper) are indispensable to our faith. Therefore, we constantly highlight these gifts as the focal point of our life together. The songs that we sing are traditional. Our service springs from confessional Lutheran liturgy. Our liturgy and language in the church is centered around being both biblical and accessible. We begin each service by standing and singing during the processional with the crucifix. We invoke the presence of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in the invocation. We listen to the appointed weekly readings from God’s Word and a message (sermon) according to them. We conclude the service with Holy Communion followed by the Benediction. After our service and Bible Study (following the service in the fellowship hall) together, we enter back into the world in our various vocations with praise in our hearts. God bless you and we pray that you may be welcomed and find a church home here!
