Making Christ Known serves as Christ Lutheran Church’s guiding principle for activities within our church, the community and with our global companion churches. Our faith comes to life as we reach out and lend a hand to those in need. Learn more about opportunities to put your faith in action as we work to make Christ known.

We help support the work of the Rock River Valley Blood Center by hosting blood drives on a regular basis.  Free meals are provided for volunteers and donors; in the summer months, brats are served!
