Central Lutheran understands our call to action is both  inspired by and deeply rooted in our faith.

For decades the people of Central Lutheran Church have participated in social advocacy. For many of the members this advocacy is what brought them to worship at Central Lutheran. Our passions are lived out through 12 groups that call for justice and service across a wide variety of intersectional areas of concern. You are as welcome to join us in action as you are to join us in worship. Click HERE for a general description of each group. 

Bread for the World, Care for Creation, Connected, Interfaith Alliance on Poverty, Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice (IMiRJ), Join, Just Coffee, LGBTQIA Inclusion (Reconciling in Christ Congregation), Lutherans for Justice in the Holy Land (LJHL), Northeast Emergency Food Program, NW Pilot Project, Transition Soup.

We believe our worship services strengthen us for ministry outside of our walls.We believe our faith is lived out when we are serving others.
