Learn and Grow
Christ Lutheran Church offers a wide variety of opportunities for involvement and growth in the Christian life. Because we believe so strongly in coming together for the better, many of our programs are offered in collaboration with other churches, community organizations, and like-minded individuals.
Christ Lutheran Church
- Sunday school for children begins at approximately 9:45 a.m. following the Children’s Sermon that takes place near the beginning of worship. After time together learning Bible stories through crafts, storytelling, and play, the children join their families prior to the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
- Women's Bible Study - Come deepen your faith as we take an in-depth look at the Old Testament beginning at 12:00 p.m. on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Mondays of each month. After completing the "Bad Girls of the Bible" book series, this group of women chose to read straight through the entire Bible from beginning to end. If you want to be more confident in your understanding of the people, places, and promises of the Bible, this small group is for you. Women of all ages and all biblical backgrounds are welcome to attend this very engaging Bible study.
- First Monday Lunch and Women's Circle - Everyone is invited to join a group of women the first Monday of each month at the Venture Inn for lunch followed by a discussion using study material from the Gather magazine. Join them at 11:30 a.m. for lunch and 1:00 p.m. for an inspirational yet challenging study.
Putting Faith Into
Action Through Service
- Christ’s Kitchen - Helping out those who have “more month than money,” Christ Lutheran Church members host a free community dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. the last Wednesday of each month. The entire community is invited with no questions asked or qualifications needed. Currently we offer a curbside service at 200 West Larch Street.
- Red Wagon Sunday - On the third Sunday of each month during the regular offering, children use little "Radio Flyer" wagons to fill with pocket change gathered from the congregation. All of the offerings are then donated to Lutheran World Relief and to the local food pantries.
- Local Food Pantries - Christ Lutheran Church members regularly donate service time, food items, and cash to the Libby and Troy food pantries.
- Habitat for Humanity - Christ Lutheran Church is a Habitat Covenant Partner Congregation and was instrumental in founding the Kootenai Valley Partners chapter in Lincoln County. Several members of the congregation help with fundraising, logistical support, and the construction of Habitat homes.
- Servant Trips - Each year a group of men, women, and/or youth from our congregation unselfishly give their time and resources to serve those in need. For youth, it can especially be an experience which gives shape to their understanding of the world at this transitional point in their lives.
- Quilts, Care Kits, and More - Quilts and blankets; military and college care packages; relief and school supply kits; and kits of healthcare essentials for infants and babies are collected, prepared, and then distributed or shipped several times during the year.
