Lutheran Disaster Response

Find out how you can help bring God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by disasters.

Separation of church and state has made for the strongest and freest religious practice in the whole world. When the state gets involved, someone's freedom will be denied.

CTS is a member of the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod of the ELCA


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.
