What do we believe?

A community of faith for all people.
Lutherans are a diverse group of people, convinced that the Holy Spirit is leading us toward unity in the household of God.
Members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are connected to the faith of the church through the ages and around the world. Lutherans believe in the Triune God, and that we are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere and of every time. When we study the Bible and pray, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story. When we serve others and address social issues that affect the common good, we live out our Christian faith. We invite you into this community of Christian faith. For more information about what we believe see the ELCA webpage about the beliefs of our national church body at

Community Ministry

Serving others in the name of Christ.

Together we are able to make ministry possible at Christ Lutheran Church. We love others through the acts we call ministry.
Here at CLC we support an assortment of ministries, including: Project Hospitality and Disaster Relief collections. We also serve the community by providing space for many community organizations to gather in our building. These include: AA ~ Alanon/Alateen~ OA ~  Worship Committee ~ Choir/Music ~ Bible Study ~ Youth ~ Diakonia ~ Cleveland Investors ~ WELCA ~ Scout Groups & more.

There is still time to give your tax-deductible benevolence to the flush fund campaign before December 31st, 2018. All letters of charitable giving will be mailed along with the year end statements in January. We are blessed with the entire community's support!
Sunday School and Youth Program

We provide a Lutheran based education for children ages 3 through 14.  Our classes meet from 9:15-10:15 AM nearly every Sunday from September through May.  We offer year round open enrollment, as well as opportunities for parents and guardians to volunteer and foster their relationship with church and God.  Prospective students are not required to be a CLC member, baptized, or of the Lutheran faith.  We welcome all children, regardless of their background, into our free Catechism Program.

This program also takes part in many Stewardship and Outreach projects that take place throughout the school year.  We provide items/gifts that benefit emergency personnel, Lutheran World Relief and Project Hospitality of Staten Island. Our ambitious Jr Youth group has undertaken several beautification projects in and around the church, which are all fine examples of how our students are evolving into caring, vital members of society. Simply call the Parish Office anytime to sign up.
