All are Welcome
Christ Lutheran Church has shared the Good News about Jesus Christ, by serving the people of this community for 100 years. Christ Lutheran is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. An active congregation of some two hundred families, we gather for worship regularly, have a Sunday School, youth activities, a Vacation Bible School program, adult study courses, and a variety of fellowship events. The church supports community organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Islip Homemakers, and Scouting by providing a place for their meetings. Our Outreach Ministry Team ministers to those in the congregation who may be enduring particularly challenging situations, and our Social Ministry Group runs a year round food pantry, as well as periodic blood drives. The church has always been blessed by committed volunteers whose efforts have made a variety of meaningful ministries produce good fruit, and we invite you to worship with us and consider being part of this Christian family.
