The observance of Lent during the 40 days (plus six Sundays) before Easter appeared in the early Church as an imitation of Jesus' 40 days of self-denial and prayer in the wilderness.
Today, Lent is a time for us to step back from our everyday lives and think about why Jesus came to save us. Lent is more than just another Service to go to on Wednesday nights ... it is a journey. A time to join Jesus in the wilderness for 40 days. A journey with Jesus to Jerusalem to his death and resurrection. A time to sacrifice and a time to renew the wonder and the joy of following Jesus.
During the season of Lent Christ Lutheran will have Services each Wednesday evening at 7:00 PM
The theme of our Lenten journey is “The Sign of Jonah”
There is plenty of Hope to go around!
Welcome to Christ Lutheran!

Join us for Worship Service!
Giving something up to remind you of Jesus' sacrifice
or doing good for others
or using Lent as a time to get to know more about Christianity are all good practices.
Perhaps this lent you could read a Christian book - begin going to a Bible study - find a way to touch others by visiting, sending cards, phoning, texting, facebooking - deciding to be a positive in someone else's life.
That is a sacrifice Jesus would approve of.

The Rock in the Desert
How many times did Christ Lutheran become a “rock in the desert” for people who found themselves in Rawlins, Wyoming? When they arrived in Rawlins, to some it seemed as if they had landed on a different planet. Rawlins, from the culture to the landscape, is indeed unlike anywhere else on earth. In 1867 General Rawlins was sent West by his good friend General Grant. Rawlin’s health was failing. As his party of soldiers crossed the wide open high plains desert of southern Wyoming he stopped to look for refreshment. A spring in the desert. How many times has Christ Lutheran become a "spring in the desert" for people who found themselves in Rawlins? Christ Lutheran has been a place of refreshment - a piece of the hope that is to come - a gift from God for the people passing through Rawlins and a blessing for those who chose to stay here. General Rawlins found a spring that quenched his thirst. Christ Lutheran, for over 60 years, has been a source of living water for the thirsty soul... living water that springs up in a person and leads them to eternal life.
When to contact Your Pastor
The term “pastor” comes from the Latin word for shepherd and is a most appropriate title for a called servant of the Word in a Christian Congregation. As your shepherd, I count it a privilege to be one of the Lord’s “undershepherds” in His church. That means that I am here to minister to your needs, to shepherd, to care for the flock of Christ. Here is where you come in: I can only “pastor” the members of this flock when they tell me about their needs. People needs are my first priority, so. . .
Contact your pastor any time
* hospitalized for any reason
* you are concerned about a friend
* contemplating marriage
* before seeing a lawyer for divorce
* you just need somebody to listen to you.
* you have questions about your faith
* you have questions about the bible
* going to have surgery
* you have sorrows or joys that you want to share. As the old Irish proverb: Friends multiply joy and divide sorrows.
I am your pastor placed here by God to serve and you can help me do just that.
In the love of Christ
