We, the people of Christ Lutheran Church, being baptized people of God, are called by His love and grace to give thanks to Him in worship. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we respond to God’s love and grace by teaching and proclaiming the Gospel. Strengthened by Word and Sacrament, we seek to grow in faith and understanding, to serve God’s people and care for His creation.

By 1859, these families had secured an acre of property from the town of Hempstead for a planned chapel. Helped by the German mission of the Methodist Episcopal Church, they organized a congregation, built a small chapel called St. John of Jerusalem, and established a cemetery. For reasons not completely clear, this congregation ceased to exist shortly after the turn of the century. The building served only as a chapel for funerals and burials in the cemetery for the next 15 years. Read More
