Welcome to Christ in Wauwatosa!
Our new Wauwatosa campus is located at
724 N 112th Street, Wauwatosa, WI, 53226.
We offer Worship Services on Sundays at 11:00 am.
The idea for a multi-site ministry with Apostles of Christ Lutheran Church in Wauwatosa was first discussed in the Fall of 2019. At this time our member Pastor Larry Gates had just started as the vacancy pastor at Apostles. More than 30 members of Christ Pewaukee visited Apostles in November 2019 to better understand the current situation. In January 2020 the voting assembly at Christ Pewaukee directed our pastors and church leadership to develop a ministry plan to focus on opportunities to reach more people with the gospel of Christ with a multi-site ministry.
Though our work was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the ministry plan was completed in the Fall of 2020 and presented to the voting assembly at Christ Pewaukee in January 2021. At this meeting, the leadership at Christ Pewaukee was authorized to pursue a merger of the two congregations. Our congregation felt that we could best serve the brothers and sisters of Apostles-Wauwatosa by proclaiming and supporting the gospel work together through a multi-site ministry. Our humble desire is to unite two campuses to do more kingdom work to the glory of God, and him alone. The merging of our church bodies was then also approved by the congregation at Apostles of Christ at a special voter’s meeting on April 11, 2021. It was then approved by the voters of Christ on April 29, 2021.
A multi-site ministry has several advantages. Multi-site would allow the campuses to be served by current called workers of the gospel. Multi-site would allow the children of all three campuses (Pewaukee, Erin, Wauwatosa) access to Christ-centered Christian education through our tuition assistance program. Multi-site makes sense for evangelism, fellowship, and resource sharing (musicians, administration, bulletins, newsletter, website, etc.). Multi-site means everything is united… including the name. This will make sharing the gospel easier as we can highlight all three campuses under one name - Christ Lutheran - with campuses in Pewaukee, Wauwatosa, and Erin. The history will not be forgotten at each campus but will be celebrated to the glory of Christ. By God's grace, our growing footprint will provide called workers and members with ever increasing opportunities to bring others to faith in our Savior Jesus Christ.
