About Christ The Servant
A congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Christ the Servant teaches that we are saved by the gift of God’s grace through faith. By that grace we are called to love one another and become disciples of Jesus Christ through lives of service. We seek to be active advocates for social justice, to share our resources in times of disaster, and to be a source of healing for a hurting world.
"Where two or more are gathered..."
The scriptures connect the continuing presence of Christ in the world to fellowship with other people and to service performed on their behalf. There are no perfect Christians, but where faithful followers are gathered Christ is revealed, inviting us into a closer relationship with God. Join us as we seek to know the God who came to us in truth and grace and as we work to reveal God's kingdom breaking forth into creation.
Sunday Morning, October 23, 1966 was the first meeting of Christ The Servant Lutheran Church. This newly formed mission congregation was attended by 47 adults and 23 children. On October 27,1968, Reformation Sunday, the Texas-Louisiana Synod conducted the rite of church organization and officially became a church of the Lutheran Church of America (later to become ELCA). 63 people became charter members of Christ The Servant.
