BUILD CHRIST LINCOLN


GROWING SO NONE ARE TURNED AWAY

In October of 1949, Christ Lutheran Church began its impact in Lincoln, NE. By the grace of God, over the next 70 years, Christ grew from a congregation of 8 to 2000 weekly attendees. We have expanded our Sumner campus and added a Yankee Hill campus to serve our congregation and city.  We have been blessed with a lifetime of connecting thousands to Jesus Christ. And we are just getting started.

Sumner Campus

The neighborhood around Sumner Campus continues to experience renewal, with an influx of young families. We now have the chance to witness future generations come to Christ Lincoln  for faith, growth, and community. Together, we can create a space to grow in His Word.


We have surpassed the available space on our Sumner Campus.  Our elementary students and childcare kids are split between two buildings, with no more space to continue two-sections per grade level of elementary after this year without remodeling other spaces. The portable building has far outlived its life expectancy. On Sundays we take over the entire neighborhood due to the lack of parking. With unity in one building and room to grow from there, we can plan for a Christ Lincoln that impacts our community for another 70 years.

 

Yankee Hill Campus

As the 211 service at our Sumner Campus flourished, the need for a new space to learn God’s Word became clear. In the fall of 2014, 174 missionaries "went South" from 211 Sumner and rented space in Lincoln Christian Elementary School. Now averaging over 300 in worship each Sunday, we are opening a new building near Yankee Hill & 70th.


South Lincoln continues to expand rapidly. Due to the creation of new neighborhoods, schools, and businesses, we felt God’s call to be Christ to south Lincoln. With room for our church and school to thrive on our new campus we are excited to be a part of the community.

PROGRESS UPDATE

Sumner Campus

We are currently putting together plans to make our Sumner Campus phases successful. Check back for future updates. Click here to view the motions from our April, 2019 congregational meeting.


Thanks to our Participate 4 Growth donors we have been able to work on completing these updates: pour new sidewalks for increased safety, install carpet in our Middle School space, update technology in meeting rooms, clean up landscape, upgrade new software to support ministry, increase building security, and consolidate operations to prepare for expanded parking. 

Yankee Hill Campus

Construction on our Yankee Hill Campus started (September, 2018). We are working to finish the inside of the building. Child Care opened on September 30th, 2019. Our first worship service was on October 27th, 2019 with 551 in attendance!
