Vacation Bible School is For Adults Too!!

To paraphrase the old Trix cereal commercial, Vacation Bible School isn’t just for kids!

Vacation Bible School is for Adults Too!

Have you ever wondered why so many read the same Bible and come out with very different answers? This study will answer that question and take a look at how we can read this sacred book and what our understanding of it can mean for our lives. Part of the time will be spent in studying some of the Bible stories.

During VBS Week, July 17-21, from 6:30-7:30 PM, Pastor Eric will lead the study, “The Whos, Whys, and Hows of Reading the Bible.” Join us for what promises to be a helpful and fulfilling study experience.

One Service at 9:30 Starts This Sunday!

For Our Visitors

WELCOME in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ! Whether you are in town just for a visit or if you are new to the area and looking for a permanent church home, you are welcome at Christ Lutheran. We believe your presence at our services is God’s gift to us. Here is some information to help you enjoy a meaningful worship experience.

WE ARE LOCATED at 7809 Woodman Road in Richmond, directly across the street from Moody Middle School. Our building is handicap accessible, and handicap accessible restrooms are available.

OUR SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES are held at 8:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. through June 26. Beginning July 3 through September 4 we will have one service at 9:30 am.

We follow the Lutheran liturgical service format, with a mixture of traditional and contemporary music. We welcome children at our services, and special children’s bulletins and “busy bags” are available to keep our young attendees occupied. If you prefer, a staffed nursery is provided for our visitors aged two and younger.

HOLY COMMUNION is celebrated at every worship service (with rare exceptions). All baptized Christians whose custom it is to receive communion are invited to participate regardless of your church affiliation or tradition. This isn’t our table; it is the Lord’s Table.

Communion can be served in your pew to anyone who is unable to come to the altar rail. Simply notify an usher if you need this service.

Please call our office at 266-5775 if you have any further questions. Our office hours are from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday.

We look forward to you worshiping with us!

Pastor Eric will be leading a Bible study (conducted in English and Spanish!) starting at 7:30.

Please call the church office (266-5775) by Tuesday (June 28) if you plan to attend so we can get an accurate count for dinner.

Despite significant storm damage in the Lakeside area, we WILL follow our normal Sunday schedule tomorrow, June 19, with services at 8:15 and 10:30.

Thankfully, our building seems to have escaped Thursday’s storm undamaged, but we did lose power and we do not have an estimate yet as to when it will be restored. So, think of tomorrow morning as an opportunity to enjoy a service utilizing “natural” light!

Our prayers are with everyone who suffered damage or is otherwise having difficulties due to this recent storm.
