Steps to Membership

1. Worship

Come see our worship styles and make sure that one of them matches the heart that God has given you.

2. Contact Sue Anne Philson, Membership Coordinator, to let her know you are interested in becoming a member. She can help you through the rest of the steps. 

Do you have LCMS background (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod)?

Yes: Ask your former church for a transfer to Christ Lutheran Church. 

No: Please take a Lutheran Teachings Class.

This four-week class goes over basic Lutheran teachings. It’s a great class for everyone who wants to learn more about our teachings, regardless of your intent to join. Class required for those with a non-Lutheran background.

3. Get Connected

We encourage our members to have balance in their lives as we walk together with Jesus by taking a Next Step

Four areas to support this are:
Connect – get to know other Christians here at Christ, encouraging one another
Grow – study God’s Word; move toward maturity in our understanding and life
Serve – bless others and help support our ministry with your God-given talents and skills
Go – make an impact outside of our four walls, in our community and world, for the Kingdom of God

Our Membership Coordinator can identify opportunities that might be of interest to you and help you connect, grow, serve or go.

4. New Member Sunday

After completing the above steps and deciding that Christ Lutheran is a great fit for your church home, you will have the opportunity to officially join our congregation. Our Membership Coordinator at Central (Sue Anne Philson) OR our Campus Pastor at South (Pastor Scheich) will take you through the membership process. We recognize new members during Sunday morning worship 3 times a year. 

5. New Member Party

Next celebration: TBA
Twice a year, we bring new members and staff together in a fun setting for the chance to meet, greet, and continue to be connected here at Christ.


Please complete a sheet for each adult becoming a member.
