Dear all,

  • Kroger Community Awards is now set up.  Did you know you Christ Lutheran Church can benefit anytime you shop at Kroger?  If you already have a Kroger rewards card, it is easy to add us!  If not, it's also easy to sign up. Visit and sign in (or create) your Kroger rewards account.  Under Community award partners, search for Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church or (easier) use our direct code FL472 and then click Enroll. Moving forward, Christ Lutheran will receive a small donation percentage of any groceries you purchase at Kroger.  For questions, please contact Pr. Chad or Katie Beth. 
  • Amazon Smile -- Shoppin on Amazon?  Don't forget to make your purchases through Amazon Smile rather than regular Amazon, and to add Christ Lutheran, Athens as your beneficiary.  It's no cost to you, and we will receive a small percentage of every purchase you make.  For questions, please contact Pr. Chad or Katie Beth. 
  • VBS is in full swing.  It's happening outside in the Sideyard from 6-7pm every Thursday in July, unless it rains.  If it rains, it's canceled.  No need to attend every week, just please let Chris Snoddy know at if your child, grandchild, neighbor, friend is planning to attend and has not yet so they prepare enough materials.  The theme is River of Life, so be ready to get wet.  Thanks to all our volunteers.    
  • AA is back to meeting in person at Christ Lutheran!  Note their new time of 6p.m. (an hour earlier than previously).  We are happy to be able to host them again.
