Many LGBTQ people been rejected by the churches they grew up in, and we are heartbroken by this.

Christ Lutheran Church welcomes people of all gender identities and all sexual orientations.  We don’t just welcome you, we are you! Queer folks participate in every aspect of the church. We are very proud to have called LGBT candidate Brenda Bos to be our pastor in 2014 and are a Reconciling in Christ congregation. Reconciling in Christ is a designation given by Reconciling Works, a Lutheran organization promoting LGBTQ inclusion. We are proud participants in Orange County Pride and Transgender events, joyfully marry same-gender couples and work to support other churches in their LGBTQ ministry. You can also find us on
