We wish each of you a blessed Christmas as you commemorate the birth of our Lord and Savior. Many family traditions surround our celebration and give it a form and substance that we look forward to every year, including special programs, get-togethers, a family meal, and the giving and receiving of gifts. We also have traditions at Christ Lutheran Church, among these being Christmas decorations, Advent candles, suppers and worship services, the children’s Christmas program, and joyous Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services.
We are fortunate to have a dedicated staff that works tirelessly throughout the year to support the ministry and programs of Christ Lutheran Church. It is appropriate that we show our recognition and appreciation for their efforts during the Christmas season. Therefore, the Elders collect a monetary gift for the staff. If you would like to join in this show of love, please make your check payable to Christ Lutheran Church, write “Staff Christmas Gift” on the memo line, and place it in the offering plate or hand it to an elder.
