World-wide Mission Support
We are aware that there are millions who do not yet know the wonder of God's love in Jesus.
We are doing as much as we can in our local area, but realize that we cannot cover the rest
of the world by ourselves. So we eagerly and substantially support missionaries and mission
congregations throughout North America and the entire world. In order to do this efficiently,
we have joined with more than 1200 other congregations in the
a church body that is dedicated to doing all it can to bring Jesus to our world.

River Hill July 4th Parade "Drill" Team
Each year we chuck flags into our battery-powered drills and load up with bags of candy, frisbees,
and other good things, practice our "routines" and march in the parade. We love meeting the thousands
who line the route, especially the children who eagerly reach for the gifts we toss out to them.
The purpose of the greeters' ministry is to practice people-centered hospitality, motivated
by and modeled after Christ's love, by welcoming guests (and members) to worship and making
them feel welcome at Christ Lutheran. Those who volunteer as greeters will serve at one
worship service every 4-6 weeks, as well as at 1-2 seasonal worship opportunities during
the year (Christmas, Lent, etc.). Volunteers of all ages are welcome, and families are
encouraged to volunteer.
As a form of encouragement to our talented and not-so-talented members, young and old,
we hold an annual potluck dinner and talent show. Perhaps you have a song, a wrestling technique,
a Civil War re-enactor, or you are a poet, musician or comb player, we want to hear/see you!
We're always looking for more - perhaps it might be you!
Quite a number of our members are talented and trained in music. From our keyboard
players/organists to our instrumentalists (some of whom are quite young),
there is a keen desire to use our gifts to minister to the congregation at worship,
by accompanying our songs of thanksgiving and praise. Some instrumentalists,
such as the organists, participate on a regular schedule. Other instrumentalists join in
during special services or seasons of the church year. Small ensembles play both
traditional and contemporary songs.
Women In Christ (WIC)
Gathering for service, fellowship, and Bible study, our WIC members to everything from helping to set
up serving schedules and planning potlucks to caring for the altar and preparing banners for the sanctuary.
They are "multitaskers"! To learn more about these fantastic ladies, contact our office.
Lutheran Women's Missionary Society (LWMS)
Twice a year, those ladies who are especially interested in missions and missionaries in our country
and around the world who are devoting their lives to sharing Jesus with those who haven't heard of
him before, gather together on a Saturday in one of our district churches.
It is exciting to hear the stories our dedicated missionaries have to tell about their work and
the people they serve and to support them. If you would like participate in such an event,
