Letter to the Congregation – Worship

Dear Friends,

In anticipation of a rise in the present pandemic risk we will continue to suspend worship services until further notice. This suspension will now include the gatherings for Holy Communion. Our continued hope is to do our part to restrict the spread of pathogens within our faith community and our families.

The recorded sermon for the week will be posted on our website (centrallutheranaz.org) for all worship dates. With the coming of Holy Week, this will include Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.

I am praying for all of you, especially those who are struggling with the impact of the virus on your daily lives. There still are many unknowns, so we want to do all we can in the best interest of our neighbor.

Your offerings are very important to the well-being of the congregation’s ministry, so I encourage you to remain current or make up for any missed offerings as soon as is possible. You can mail contributions to P.O. Box 677, Arizona City, AZ 85123. Please use this mailing address for all correspondence.

Again, thank you for your cooperation as we consider how to best balance the need to be safe with the desire to serve one another. Also, please watch for the April newsletter with more details about the congregation’s transition to new pastoral leadership.

Pastor Thom

Your Christian home in Arizona City and Casa Grande area.

The spirit of love is expressed in welcoming people with a variety of church backgrounds and experiences. We see this as the work of being followers of Christ, applying what God has done for us in service and care for others.


At Central Lutheran Church, we think of ourselves as a part of the Christian church. We join with Christians around our nation and the world in acknowledging Jesus as Lord and Savior and the Bible as the revealing work of God. Therefore, we are a church that works toward bringing all people together, sharing the love of God that unites us.

When looking for a “home” church, there are a variety of names and denominations. Many of these designations may be unfamiliar – like “Lutheran” – and it is hard to know where we may fit in and feel comfortable.

As Paul wrote in Ephesians, we have received gifts “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God.”

When coming to our church, we hope you experience a sense of our joy and hope that will make this your church, a central part of your life.
