Welcome to the Central Lutheran Church website. (If you'd like to check out our Facebook page, click here.) We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Central has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

We’re collecting school supplies for the Salvation Army to help our local kids prepare for the coming school year. If you are out shopping for your kids or grandkids and could pick up some extra supplies to help another child, it would make a world of difference for them. There will be a donation box in the Fireside room.

COMING THIS FALL
The “Estate Planning for the Heart”TM curriculum we’ve been hearing so much about at our last two Synod Assemblies will be making its public debut at Central Lutheran Church in Spokane on November 18th and 19th for the EWALK (Eastern Washington) Network area. With module topics that include “Good, Better, Best: Funeral Decisions Made Simpler”, “A Good Document Is A Done Document”, and “Playing Cards And Talking Straight”, the series of modules helps us address the issues related to end-of-life circumstances. It teaches us how to best prepare and then handle the various ways in which we might end up facing these difficult situations and the decisions they demand. Schedule will be a Friday noon through Saturday dinner. Registration will be available through Central’s website.
Watch our “EWALK” FB page, Central’s website (www.clspokane.org), and Synod email communication for details as they become available.
NURSERY STAFF AVAILABLE FOR HOURLY CHILDCARE -- Our capable nursery staff are available for offsite childcare as your needs arise. Their contact information is available on the bulletin board at church. If you’ve enjoyed and appreciated their service during the service, why not give them a call when you want a night out?

Meet Pastor Dave
Our Pastor, David Kappus, has been an inspiration to our community and our congregation (just ask him, he'll tell ya!). Pastor Dave's sermons often include insightful stories that have real-life meaning, scriptural relevance, and even the occasional reference to Star Trek.
