Welcome!

Central Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with nearly 3.3 million members in more than 8,900 worshiping communities across the 50 states and in the Caribbean region. Known as the church of "God's work. Our hands," the ELCA emphasizes the saving grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, unity among Christians and service in the world. The ELCA's roots are in the writings of the German church reformer Martin Luther..

Beginning in 1890, Central has a rich heritage of being a traditional, and confessional congregation with an emphasis on engaging the future with boldness.

Kids' Central Preschool started classes in fall of 2009 and continues to offer this ministry with Laurie Bunnell as lead teacher.

Sternberg Hall is a year round dormitory for college students and interns seeking a faith-based and faith-friendly community atmosphere while attending one of the three local colleges/university. 

The best way to get to know us is come and join us for worship.  All are welcome at the Lord's Table.  God knows your name -- this is a good place to discover, learn, and grow in faith.
Announcements
All Group Activities are moving into Open Washington Covid 19 rules. Worship services are planned for online and limited in-person participation.

The building remains open for INDIVIDUALS or SAME HOUSEHOLD needing sanctuary. Please call ahead to schedule a time. Drop-in's are welcome. [Sometimes I am running errands so always best to call ahead if possible.]

In-Person & Online worship assistants are limited to the very basic individuals required to produce the online worship service. If you are a techie and want to help with on-line worship we really could use a couple more helpers.
