About Us:

Recognizing God's blessings, we are a congregation committed to MAKING A LOVING DIFFERENCE in the lives of each other, the mission of Christ's church in the world, and in all of the communities we touch.
The mission of Christ Lutheran Church is
to WELCOME people into a journey of Christian faith,
to PREPARE these people for daily living as Christ's disciples, and
to SEND them to serve in Christ's name.


This congregation recognizes the diversity that exists in our world and affirms the unity of all who come seeking the Lord here in this place.  We rejoice in the worth, gifts and dignity of every person, and strive to be a safe place where all people can receive the grace of our Lord and enter into the fellowship of Christ's Body.  You are welcome here!  We're just one block west of the University of Mary Washington Campus. Our 9am and 11am Sunday Services are open to all.

Upcoming Events and Activities:

This year we are providing 70 elementary schoolchildren at Harrison Road and Wilderness,
who are on the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program, with a backpack of food to
take home for 38 weekends during the school year.  That’s over 5,300 pounds of food! 
This coming year we would like to increase the number of Harrison Road and Wilderness
students we are supporting beyond the current 70.  So how can you help make that happen? 


Sunday, May 18th, 12:15, there will be a FABULOUS FEMALES LUNCHEON for all women
at CLC and their special female guests.

Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA

What does the ELCA mean to you?

Share the gospel. Stop malaria. Start new congregations. Expand ministries to people living with disabilities. Break the cycle of hunger and poverty. Engage youth and young adults. Support our church’s future leaders.

It is not often that the opportunity to make a real and lasting difference comes along. But now, through Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA, you can.

Whether we are welcoming people into our congregations or providing assistance to those who are hungry, the ministries we make possible together as members of the ELCA are changing lives.

But don't just take our word for it. Please take a minute to watch the video  and hear what our sisters and brothers in Christ – in the U.S. and around the world – are saying.
