TRADITIONAL | CONTEMPORARY

Our Worship Style

When we did a congregational survey in spring 2014, we were surprised and delighted to find that many in our congregation described our worship services as “traditional,” while just as many described it as “contemporary”!
We take this to mean that our style of worship is one with which lots of people can be comfortable.
Join Us One Sunday & Find Out For Yourself!

A Message from Our Pastor

Our mission at Christus Victor is: “sharing God’s love and grace through worship, outreach and fellowship” and we take that mission very seriously.
It begins in worship, where we share and rejoice in hearing God’s saving Word and celebrate the Sacraments, and it continues as we bring that faith into the world. Whether we are bringing food and clothing to the poor in this community, or picking up trash on Old 41, or gathering to work through the joys and challenges of life and faith, the love and comfort of Christ is present.
Each time we gather, whether at Sunday worship or throughout the week, we share that presence with friends and strangers alike. Nestled safely in His love, we can know the victory that only Christ can provide – freedom from the weight of sin and death, freedom to love and be loved! Thanks be to God!
