As Christians, we can look forward with joy and anticipation to the day when our Lord will call us home to Himself in heaven. We can know for certain heaven is ours through faith in Christ’s atonement for our sins on the cross. Thus, we are most certainly “spiritually” prepared for our death.
Unfortunately, many people are not prepared for their death in terms of the preparations that are necessary for the funeral and its arrangements. This guide will help you consider these details and provide you with a means of sharing information with your loved ones, your pastor and the funeral director of your choice.
Here some funeral planning resources to help you get started:

If you are in the early stages of planning a wedding, Christ Lutheran would be privileged to be part of this special day in your life. We celebrate marriage as the foundation of our human relationship instituted by God between a man and a woman. After an initial session with one of the pastors, and after a date has been placed on the church calendar, you will probably have questions about the many details of your wedding at the church.
These guidelines are meant to give direction to your planning but may not cover every possibility. Please contact us for more information on planning your big day!

Christ Lutheran’s Church council currently permits, in special circumstances, the limited consumption of beer & wine during on-campus, church-related events. In order for such usage to be consistent with promoting principles of Christian living, the following guidelines must be followed:
The use of these beverages will only be incidental to, and not a focus of such events
There will be no buying or selling of alcohol. Guests must consume in moderation, never displaying any public drunkenness.
Only beer and/or wine will be allowed (no liquor). Alternative, non-alcoholic drinks must be offered and clearly communicated at all such events.
Care will be taken as to the appropriate presence of youth and children. No beer/wine for adults will be permitted for an event that is primarily youth oriented.
The intention is for these events to be congregational in nature.
Council will decide whether or not a licensed bartender will be necessary for the event based on size and the specifics of the event.
Groups must obey all federal, state, and local laws and regulations with respect to alcoholic beverages.
The usage of alcohol at any on-campus event must have Council approval at least 30 days prior to the event.
