“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
As Christians, we are called to serve others, and there are many ways to get involved at Christ Lutheran Church! Our congregation has several boards that members are welcome and encouraged to serve on.
