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.

WE HAVE TWO SERVICES on Sunday mornings at 8:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. We also offer a Faith Formation/Sunday School hour at 9:25 a.m. At 2:30 p.m. each Sunday, the Casa de Dios Hispanic Church conducts a worship service in Spanish.

WE FOLLOW THE LUTHERAN LITERGICAL 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.

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. Even if you do not take communion, you are welcome to come forward to the communion rail to receive a pastoral blessing.

FAITH FORMATION classes are offered for children, youth and adults from 9:25 a.m.-10:15 a.m. During the school year, there is also a Youth Gathering for grades 6-12 each Sunday at 4:00 p.m.

Please call our office at 804-266-5775 if you have any further questions. Our office hours are 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
