About Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church
     Our congregation was founded in 1891 in Bridgeton, New Jersey, and is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America  (www.elca.org), and the New Jersey Synod (www.njsynod.org).  Worship services are on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. and Sunday School (except Summer) at 9:15 a.m.  We have an active Youth Group, Women of the ELCA group, Community Food Pantry, and participate in the Bridgeton "Code Blue" program by preparing and serving dinner to the homeless Tuesdays during winter.
