A Community of Faith

Christ Lutheran Church has a long history of Lutheran Christianity in the Great Kills neighborhood of Staten Island. Beginning in 1922 in the old firehouse on Hillside Avenue, to our current beautiful church grounds built in 1953, this congregation has always supported one another throughout our lives. CLC is a wonderful community-based church filled with many levels of enrichment to offer. If you or someone you know is looking to learn more on becoming a member, please call the church office for more information.

Adult Bible Story

“The Story” will begin this September for our Adult Bible Study.  It’s a journey through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. “For some years now, I have read through the Bible every year.  If you picture the Bible to be a mighty tree and every little word a little branch, I have shaken every one of these branches because I wanted to know what it was and what it meant for me.” (Martin Luther)
