Welcome to the Central Lutheran Church website. (If you'd like to check out our Facebook page, click here.) We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Central has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

Christmas Eve Service – December 24th – 6:00pm
Christmas Day Service – December 25th – 10:30am
As part of our partnering with Lutheran Community Services, we will again be having an opportunity to help a couple families. The Sharing Tree will be up soon and you can pick a gift tag to purchase a gift item. The tags are suggestions only. It is to give you an idea of who you are getting a gift for. It will have their age and gender and a suggestion of what they have put on their wish list. If you cannot find the item, you may make a substitute. This is a tough year for many families in our community and they appreciate being remembered at Christmas. You have always been very generous in helping make Christmas special to those in need. Thank you in advance for your generosity. If you have questions or just want to give a monetary gift towards the family's Christmas meal, let Marilyn Rounds know. Again thank you!
Impromptu Christmas Pageant
At our Christmas Eve service (6:00pm), we will be holding our “Impromptu Christmas Pageant.” If you and/or your children would like to participate, please arrive between 5:30 and 5:45pm to get into a costume of your choosing. This way, everyone can be ready when the service begins. Also, if you are handy with a sewing machine, we could use some help updating/repairing/supplementing our Christmas costume cache. Contact Pastor Dave if you can help with that.

Help us spread the word to those in the congregation who may not have email that they can now get a ride to church if they want one!

Meet Pastor Dave
Our Pastor, David Kappus, has been an inspiration to our community and our congregation (just ask him, he'll tell ya!). Pastor Dave's sermons often include insightful stories that have real-life meaning, scriptural relevance, and even the occasional reference to Star Trek.
