Please see some of our frequently asked questions below

New Members
Please see the Pastor after our Sunday liturgy and contact the church office if you are interested in joining CLC! New Member classes are usually offered in the fall and spring. Speak with the Pastor or any council member if you wish to participate in this community of faith. New Member Sundays are a sign of renewed participation in the life of the church.  
If you are interested in having your child baptized, please contact the church office! In holy baptism, God delivers us from the forces of evil, puts our sinful selves to death, gives us new birth, adopts us as children, and makes us members of the body of Christ, the church.  
Holy Communion
All are welcome to the Lord’s Table! If you are interested in your child receiving first communion, please contact the Pastor or your child’s Sunday School teacher. All baptized Christians who believe in the real presence of Christ in the sacrament are welcome to receive the Lord’s Supper. Visitors and guests are welcome.
Confirmation is a two-year teaching ministry of the church for 7th & 8th graders, focusing on The Bible, and Martin Luther’s Small Catechism. If you are interested in signing your child up for confirmation instruction, please contact the Pastor and the church office! Although a person is baptized once, the gift of baptism continues forever. Instruction in the faith for a life of discipleship is part of the preparation of those who are to be confirmed. The ongoing nurture of that faith is part of the congregation’s ministries of formation, education, service, and evangelical witness.  
If you are interested in having your wedding ceremony at CLC, please contact the church office for a Wedding Booklet and to schedule a time to meet with the Pastor! Marriage is a gift of God, intended for the joy and mutual strength of those who enter it, and for the well-being of the whole human family. Marriage is also a human estate, with vows publicly witnessed. The church in worship surrounds these promises with the gathering of God’s people and with prayers of blessings and intercession.  
Visitation of the Sick
Visitation is an expression of the church’s ministry of healing. Here, all who sense the need for God’s healing in any aspect of their lives may join in prayer for others and themselves. As part of our healing ministry, we offer occasional healing services throughout the year. We also have an active Prayer List.   If you, a family member, or someone else you know is sick or homebound and wishes for a pastoral visit, please reach out to the Pastor and contact the church office to schedule a time! If you wish to add someone to the Prayer List, please contact the church office!  
At a person’s death, the church shares the grief of those who mourn and remembers the brevity of life on earth. At the funeral, we give voice to sorrow, thank God for our loved ones, and entrust our companions into the hands of God. Trusting in God’s promise in baptism that we are claimed by Christ forever, we rest in the sure hope of the resurrection. At the time of the death of a loved one, please contact the Pastor and the church office. We also have a columbarium at CLC, for ashes of cremated remains; pick up a flyer in the back of the church.
