All are welcome


We believe the church is meant to be the living presence of Christ in the world. "Where two or three are gathered in my name," Jesus says, "I am there among them." There are no perfect Christians but, where faithful followers are gathered, Christ is revealed — inviting us into a closer relationship with God. Join us in the inclusive community of Jesus' grace. God did not create the world in black and white but created a spectrum of color greater than our ability to see. So, no matter if you are:

Young, old, or somewhere in between;

Black, brown, or white;

Single, married, divorced, or widowed;

LBGTQIA, straight, or just trying to figure out what any of that means;

Republican, Democrat, independent, liberal or conservative;

Lutheran, Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Jewish, Muslim or something else;

Feeling guilty, feeling blessed or, just trying to make grandma happy.

We welcome you.

It's what Jesus would have done.


Join Us!

CTS is a small congregation in a small church. It is easy to learn people's names (we even have name tags). It's even easier to make friends and find a church family in our established congregation, where you won't be overwhelmed.

Anyone is welcome. Jesus welcomed the children, the sick, the sinners, the crowds, and everyone else, without question, and we will too!


We have a liturgically-based service, with forgiveness, scripture, a sermon, prayers, communion, and wonderful music every Sunday.


There are Sunday School classes for children and adults, and a nursery with an attendant close to the sanctuary for wiggly children.

There are a variety of activities outside of the worship service in which you can choose to participate, or you can start your own ministry; we are very supportive of each other. Your level of participation is up to you.
