Welcome to Christ the Servant

Christ the Servant (CTS) Lutheran Church was founded as a mission congregation of the American Lutheran Church (ALC) with its first worship service on Nov. 21, 1976. Our chartering meeting was held on Jan. 19, 1977, with 96 charter members. On June 18, 1978, Christ the Servant moved into its current building.  On January 1, 1988, CTS joined the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) as a result of a merger of three Lutheran denominations. In October 1991, CTS dedicated its new addition to meet our growing needs.

CTS joins LCMC–Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ

On May 2, 2010, CTS congregation members voted to leave the ELCA synod and join LCMC (Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ).

As a member of the LCMC association, we are a congregation (along with 794 other LCMC congregations) that is

**Free in Christ;

**Accountable to one another;

**Rooted in the Scriptures and The Lutheran Confession

**Working together to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission to go and make disciples of all nations.
