Christ Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
We believe that God's grace is for everyone. If you are a life-long Lutheran, from another denomination or faith tradition, or searching on your spiritual path, you are equally welcome here. You are welcome no matter your age, ethnic background, church history, political perspective, economic condition, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or education.
Because we believe this, we are a Reconciling in Christ congregation.
Installation of Pastor Joene Herr, May 9, 2015
For the first time in just a few days short of 39 years, Christ Lutheran Church of Santa Fe will install a new called pastor.
After a nine-month long search and discernment process, the members of Christ Lutheran Church have called Pastor Joene Herr as our next permanent pastor. Pastor Joene comes to Santa Fe from Ithaca, Ohio, where she was pastor of St. Matthew Lutheran Church.
Pastor Joene will be installed on Saturday, May 9th at 11:00 AM at Christ Lutheran Church, 1701 Arroyo Chamiso, Santa Fe. The members of Christ Lutheran Church will be joined by Bishop Jim Gonia, Bishop of the Rocky Mountain Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, many clergy members from churches in the area, and by many other friends. The installation ceremony is open to the public.
This installation represents the culmination of two long journeys.
One is Pastor Joene's relocation from Ohio to Northern New Mexico -- a journey involving many miles, a very different climate and a different culture.
For the members of Christ Lutheran Church, it represents a journey of many changes -- the retirement of our previous pastor, who served an amazing 37 years at Christ Lutheran, along with many changes happening throughout the church today.
We are happy that these two journeys end at the same place, and believe it to be the beginning of a wonderful future for Christ Lutheran.
