So what do you imagine when you hear the word “church”?  A place you go to on Sunday where certain things happen? Or a grocery store where you can pick and choose and take home what’s on your shopping list? Or a group of people who are not too different from you, yet who are drawn to be like Christ to one another, and as his hands and feet offer themselves for the sake of others? As pastor, I am excited to be part of a faith community that is on a journey – learning to know their need for God, to share it with one another, and make a difference for good in the world.  Welcome to Christ Lutheran Church.

BTW the main thing about my family is that I am married to Beckie, an Illinois girl and Wisconsin boy who met at college in Iowa, and raised a family in Palatine, IL.  The great new role granted to me in recent years is “grandpa!” a role I relish with 4 little ones age 1 – 6.
