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.

It’s time to complete any paintings, drawing, sculptures, models, rugs, quilts, writing, music or whatever you might be working on and have it ready to display. We have some easels at church but if you have your own display apparatus, please bring it along.
WE’RE GETTING A NEW VAN!! -- We have been awarded an STA Surplus Cutaway Van with wheelchair lift for our very own! We won’t have it in time for Easter but it should be here soon after that. We will be looking for people to drive on Sunday mornings and for special events at the church or in the community. If you would like to be on a driver list, please contact the church office or Donn Gehret. Once the van is here, we’ll have a training session to familiarize you with the lift operation and other safety restraint systems on the vehicle. No special driver license is required. We’re very excited about the possibilities this presents and look forward to putting it to good and constant use!
NURSERY STAFF AVAILABLE FOR HOURLY CHILDCARE -- Our capable nursery staff are available for offsite childcare as your needs arise. Their contact information is available on the bulletin board at church. If you’ve enjoyed and appreciated their service during the service, why not give them a call when you want a night out?
Volunteer for Church Activities -- clspokane.ivolunteer.com -- we use this site for all our volunteer needs at Central, from activity sign-ups to helping with Sunday mornings! Check it out!!

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.
