Annual Traditions at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church

At Christ Lutheran Church, we take pride in the many traditions associated with our faith. Join us as we celebrate and uphold these time-honored ceremonies.

Christkindlfest

Christkindlfest is one our of largest events each December. We welcome you to join us in celebrating the Christmas story by enjoying our sound and light Fontanini Nativity Display. There are always beautiful crafts for sale as well as a tricky tray auction, and be sure to check out our Tannenbaum tea room where you can indulge in tea, scones and other treats. St. Nicholas himself has been known to frequent the event.

Harvest Home Sunday

Our Harvest Home week occurs in October and it is always an enjoyable week to join us in worship as we thank God for the harvest feat he has provided through collecting cans of non-perishables for those in need.

Blessing of the Pets

Yes, you read correctly, on the first Sunday afternoon of October we bring our pets to the church for a special blessing.

Church Yard Sale

We understand that everyone needs some help lightening their load, so we have a yard sale every summer to do just that. There is a limited number of tables available, so it never hurts to plan ahead and plan on coming to what has proven to be a fun and rewarding event.

Independence Day Celebrations

To celebrate our American pride, we welcome the Hazleton Liberty Band to perform during the service in addition to our usual music. The big band is always a treat, and we welcome all to join us for the occasion.

Easter Egg Fundraiser

Join us as we host our annual Easter Egg Fundraiser. Children and adults alike love our chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs, and the money from sales goes toward keeping the church funded.
