We are not perfect!

A church is not for perfect people. We are a group of people on this journey of faith and we are on it together. All are welcome to join us for worship and our various ministries as God continues to shape us to be who He wants us to be.

A message from Pastor Jim

Hello, my name is Jim, and I am the pastor at Light of Christ Lutheran Church.

Welcome to Light of Christ. We are a group of people who are on this journey of faith together. This journey has ups and downs. We are a church for those who are struggling with whatever life is throwing at them. We are also a church for people who are not struggling. Life in the church is no different than the life we all live. There are good times and difficult times. We have everyone from singles, families with kids of all ages and of course our Amazing Grey’s- our senior members. Come join us!

One thing that sets us apart is the Sunday morning message. Most pastors preach for 45 minutes - or more! Our sermons are about 20 minutes long. Yes, they are shorter than most other pastor’s sermons but they are powerful and you will remember more of the message. If that doesn't get your attention I don't know what will.

As a church, we realize that the Christian life is to be lived daily. Our Growth Groups help us to this. Daily bible reading and prayer is very important. We also make sure to hear the Gospel and we attend church to do so. We also know that our faith is not just "between me and God". Faith is between us (all of us as a community) and God. The Christian life is to be lived in community- not alone.

I have a great family and instead of describing us, I will let the two pictures below show you. We love camping in National Parks and spending our nights in our Tent Trailer. On one of our trips we were at Mt. Rainier National Park. You can see a before and after picture of a six-mile hike.

I want to invite you to attend a worship service a few times and come see experience what we are about.
