All services, and most music and hymns are from the synodically approved Lutheran Service Book Hymnal or The Lutheran Hymnal. Unlike some LCMS congregations, Christ Lutheran Church does not have “contemporary worship,” or “blended worship” services.
A laminated, in-depth description of The Divine Service can be found in the pews. This resource will give you the meaning, an application for daily living, liturgy, (order of service) and the Scriptural Basis.
The Lord’s Supper is received at:
Mid-Week Evening Worship services, or Mid-Week Advent and Lenten services do not typically have the Lord’s Supper.
Holy Communion is offered to baptized communicant members of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) and others in altar and pulpit fellowship with the LCMS.
We take seriously the spiritual care of those who commune at our altar. Those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily (not recognizing the real bodily presence of Christ’s body and blood) do so to their great harm (1 Cor. 11:27-29). Furthermore, Holy Communion is a confession of what is taught and believed at this altar (1 Cor. 11:26).
Therefore, any who are not yet baptized, instructed and confirmed in the teaching of the LCMS through Luther’s Small Catechism, in doubt, or who hold a confession (beliefs) differing from that of the LCMS, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, will want to first speak with a pastor before communing.

Catechism instruction classes for non-LCMS members are offered by the Pastors on an individual basis.
