Christ Lutheran Church began as a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of the American Lutheran Church. People began to meet at the Leland Stanford Middle School on August 26, 1956. Pastor Art Odden was the first of 16 pastors who have served this congregation.The Rev. Dr. Pamela JS Challis is our current pastor.

Christ Lutheran broke ground on site November 10,1957.

We are now part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Southwest California Synod,
