"The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down." 

Psalm 146: 8


We of Christ Lutheran Church Niantic...

                   Gather  to worship and praise God, 

                                Grow  through  scripture and prayer, and

                                        Go  into the world to share God's love and grace. 



Christ Lutheran Church is located in the quaint village of Niantic at the crossroads of Niantic and Congo-Niantic Roads, less than 1 mile off of route 100.


We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA). From the beginning, Christ Lutheran Church has grounded itself on God's amazing love, God's holy Word and sacrament.


Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, know that you are welcome here!
