Christ the Servant Lutheran Church is a progressive, sacramental community dedicated to living out the implications of Jesus’ love ethic. Our acronym, CTS, not only refers to our name, but also refers to our three primary tasks: to Care, Teach and Serve. We strive to be a place of generous caring, lively study and committed service to the world. We welcome you to get to know us!

GWOH On Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, CTS will be one of the nearly 10,000 congregations of the ELCA gathering to serve communities in ways that share the love of God with all of God’s people. Watch for us in the neighborhood!
