Sunday Worship Services with Holy Communion at 9am and 11am
Church Office: 540-373-5087


We believe

…that youth are not just the future of the church, but that they are already a vital part of it. Christ Lutheran encourages all middle schoolers and high schoolers to be active in the life of our congregation. Youth participate and lead in worship as assisting ministers, acolytes, crucifiers, by singing in the choir, and playing in the handbell choir.

In addition to these worship leadership opportunities, Christ Lutheran holds regular youth group meetings called ChrisTeens. The middle school ChrisTeens meet on the second Sunday of the month; the high school ChrisTeens meet on the third Sunday of the month; and, on the fourth Sunday of the month the middle and high school ChrisTeens meet for a special event or service activity. We meet from 5 to 6:30 pm in the church fellowship hall. Youth enjoy food, fellowship, and faith formation.

Christ Lutheran ChrisTeens attends statewide and national youth events. To check out statewide events, please visit the Virignia Synod’s Youth website. To learn more about the next national youth gathering, please visit the ELCA’s Youth Gathering website.

Questions? Contact Pastor Anne who leads the youth events with the help of Jonathan Branker and Tim Wilson.
