So happy that you are interested in Christ Lutheran Church in Reedley… at least, interested enough to have a look at our website.
Let us welcome you to our church! We hope you will like what you see and read on this site.
Our mission statement says that we are a family church and that is a good description of who we are because we welcome families of all types. These days, church is one of the few places where all the generations are represented, so we are like a big family -- unique and quirky, like big families are. We love each other, but, we are human and so don’t expect us to be perfect, because we are not. We are grateful that God has forgiven us and, following God's lead, we try to offer forgiveness to each other.
If you come to worship with us, you will find that there are quite a few grandparent types in the pews, but also some couples and young families with little kids. Some of the folks in the middle, those in their fifties or sixties who are empty nesters and who have young grandchildren – they sometimes bring their grandchildren to church, too.
We celebrate Holy Communion during every Sunday. Everyone is welcome at the Lord’s Table. No previous training is necessary.
If you are looking for a church that focuses on sin and judgment, and who is a sinner and who is not, then we are probably not the church for you. We leave the judging up to God; we know we all fall short in one way or another.
If you are looking for a church that focuses on God’s love for us and that we are saved by Christ through the grace of God, then we might be a good place for you. If you are trying to figure out how to have a relationship with God and are struggling with questions about faith and life and what it means to be a Christian, then we might be a very good place for you. If you want support and encouragement as you try to figure things out, and if you want to try to do some good for others, then we might be a very good place for you.
Hope to see you in church!
Blessings and peace,
