Lord's Supper

On the second and fourth Sundays of each month we celebrate the Lord's Supper.
Because God wants to bless those who partake of this special meal, he has called us to be assured that those who receive this meal have been properly instructed in his Word.  Therefore we practice close communion, which means that we ask those who are not members of our congregation or a sister Wisconsin Synod congregation to speak to the Pastor before communing.  He will explain the options available to you to predpare to receive the Lord's Supper.


Baptism

We believe that also through the Sacrament of Baptism the Holy Spirit applies the gospel to sinners, giving them new life (Titus 3:5) and cleansing them from all sin (Acts 2:38).  The Lord points to the blessing of Baptism when he promises, "Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved" (Mark 16:16).  We believe that the blessing of Baptism is meant for all people (Matthew 28:19), including infants.  Infants are born sinful (John 3:6) and therefore need to be born again, that is, to be brought to faith, through Baptism (John 3:5).

If you would like to consult with the pastor regarding the baptism of your child, please call the church office (507-732-5421).  Baptisms are scheduled through the Church Office.

Baptisms are usually held within the worship service because the congregation, on behalf of the whole church, is also assuming responsibilty for nurturing the baptized child in the Christian faith and life.


Weddings

At the time of a wedding, there are many plans to make and many steps involved in carrying out those plans.  We strive to provide a couple with important counsel and guidance from God's Word so that they will establish a Christ-centered marriage and family life.  For that reason, we only perform weddings for those who are members of our congregation or who are willing to attend our Bible Information Class.

Those who wish to be married at Christ Lutheran will meet with the pastor shortly after the engagement to discuss the wedding service.  They will also be required to attend our premarital counseling course that focuses on building a Christ-centered home and provides guidance for dealing with common issues in marriage.
