Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here.
Christ Alone is meant to be a church for everyone, just like God is. We also want to be a church that cares for people in every walk of life. This includes you!
What can I expect when I visit?
When you visit us for worship, you can expect to be warmly welcomed by one of our ushers. You may sit wherever you like. A worship folder will be provided to guide you through the worship service. You are welcome to participate, or you may just want to sit and observe as you get to know this church. We want you to be comfortable here!
What is worship like at Christ Alone?
You can expect to be led to see God more clearly, through the reading and preaching of his Word. You can expect to hear music, especially hymns, that express truth in a beautiful and timeless way. You can expect a “path of worship,” some call it liturgical, that is both consistent and varied each week. For some parts of it we stand; for other parts we sit. In this way, you can expect to meet Jesus and be refreshed by his message of peace.
Do I have to be a Lutheran to come?
No! We welcome people from all backgrounds. Whether this is your first experience with a church, or you have another religious background, we encourage you to join in hearing the good news we share.
Can I participate in Holy Communion?
Because participating in Holy Communion is a statement of unity with our church, we ask that those who come forward for communion first join our congregation as members, or be members of another Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) or Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) church. While a number of congregants do participate, it is also common and perfectly acceptable to stay seated and simply join in the singing during the sacrament.
How should I dress?
We have no dress code as a church, and people wear all various styles – from informal to quite formal. You will feel very comfortable wearing “dress casual,” as most do.
Are my children invited, too?
Yes! Children of all ages are welcome and expected in our worship services. Here they learn the sights and sounds of worship as people interact with God and with each other. We expect that they will not always be quiet! For your comfort, a cry room with a video monitor is available for use at the North Campus in Thiensville.
Are masks required?
At this time, no COVID protocols are in place, and the majority of worshipers do not wear masks. It’s not unusual, however, for masks to be worn due to concerns about the virus.
Is the church handicapped accessible?
Both campuses are ADA accessible, with a carport at the North Campus and a ramp at the South Campus. Restrooms are ADA accessible as well. We also provide a loop system at the North Campus to assist those with hearing aids.
Is there ministry beyond the worship service for me and my family?
For those who wish, we also offer an hour of age-specific Bible teaching on Sundays at 9:15am. This is offered during the school year for ages K3 through Adults, in our school building. You and your family are always welcome. View our ministries page to learn more about these offerings, or connect with us to have your specific questions addressed.
How do I join this church?
We offer several opportunities for “Discovery” each year. That is our short course on core Bible teachings to help you grow toward unity of faith with Christ Alone. If you are not already a member of a WELS or ELS church, we welcome your participation. Please ask one of the pastors about it.
If you’re interested, you can learn more about our connection with the WELS here.
