Christus Victor

Making Christ Known

We are an Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) congregation growing in the likeness of Christ by:

Worshiping, praying, and studying God’s word;
Being together with other people; and
Acting in faith through words and deeds both inside and outside our church walls.

BLESSING OF THE QUILTS: 9.25.16

Every Monday, members of Christus Victor meet to work quietly and diligently to create beautiful quilts.  Other members take home squares to work on at home during their free time.  These quilts, so lovingly assembled, will soon be sent off to Lutheran World Relief, along with the school kits we have been assembling throughout the summer.   Eventually, both the quilts and school kits will be sent out to help people around the world.  In 2014, these dedicated sewers made over 150 quilts, and in 2015, they beat that number, sewing 161 quilts in total!  These quilts have gone to help people in the Philippines, Tanzania, Georgia, and last year's quilts went to India.

On the weekend of September 24/25 of 2016, this year's quilts were on display in the Sanctuary.  They received a special blessing at all 3 services.  Then they were boxed up and sent on their way to help people in need throughout the world.

If you have never had the pleasure of seeing any of these amazing quilts, below are some photos of the beautiful quilts they made last year.  Christus Victor truly does have dedicated, gifted, and giving members.
