All are Welcome
Christ Lutheran Church has shared the Good News about Jesus Christ, by serving the people of this community for 100 years. Christ Lutheran is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. An active congregation of some two hundred families, we gather for worship regularly, have a Sunday School, youth activities, a Vacation Bible School program, adult study courses, and a variety of fellowship events. The church supports community organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Islip Homemakers, and Scouting by providing a place for their meetings. Our Outreach Ministry Team ministers to those in the congregation who may be enduring particularly challenging situations, and our Social Ministry Group runs a year round food pantry, as well as periodic blood drives. The church has always been blessed by committed volunteers whose efforts have made a variety of meaningful ministries produce good fruit, and we invite you to worship with us and consider being part of this Christian family.

ELCA - Lutheran Disaster Response
Your gifts are needed now for Hurricane Matthew. Your support through Lutheran Disaster Response will bring God’s hope and healing to those who have been or will be affected by this hurricane. Our response already spans across several countries. Together, we will work with trusted partners and companion churches that know the communities well and are preparing recovery efforts. Although the hurricane has not yet reached the U.S. coast, Lutheran Disaster Response coordinators are collaborating with local community leaders, civic organizations, ecumenical partners and officials to begin planning the proper response. The storm is not over. You can help now. Gifts designated for “Hurricane Matthew” will be used in full (100 percent) until the response is complete to help disaster survivors recover and rebuild. For more information or to donate, please visit the ELCA's website for Lutheran Disaster Response - Hurricane Matthew.
