Christikon

Since 1951, Christikon has been a special place for spiritual growth and renewal with friends, old and new; an intentional Christian community where all are welcome, chosen, cherished, loved, forgiven, redeemed, and made worthy by none other than Jesus Christ himself.

Worship begins and ends each day. We study the Bible together, take time to reflect and be alone with God. We work hard, play hard, enjoy time together and time apart, with time for worship & prayer, and time for silliness and song.

Christikon is a place of joy that lifts up God’s gift of life. A place for you. You don’t have to be Lutheran to be at Christikon. Come with your questions, your doubts, your challenges, and joys. All are welcome.

Love INC

LOVE INC

CtK is a partner congregation of Love INC (INC = in the name of Christ). 

We help stock Love INC's Personal Care Pantry with needed toiletries, etc. The next time you pick up shampoo, conditioner, band-aids, etc., for you, pick up an extra one (not the large economy size, please) for those in need and drop it off on the designated table in the social hall.

Members and friends are also encouraged to fill out a "Talent Tithe" so that their gifts and skills can be put to use helping those with various needs in our community.

Other Opportunities to Serve our Community

We have regular drives for specific food items. Right now we are collecting canned soup and boxes of cereal.

Thanks and keep up the good work!
