Risen Christ Lutheran Church & School

Enriching and renewing lives by bringing Christ to our community.

Welcome to

Who We Are:

Risen Christ Lutheran Church & School are affiliated with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS). For more information on the LCMS, please visit the LCMS Website.

What We Believe

We believe the Holy Scriptures are the inspired and inerrant Word of God. We believe all people are sinners in need of a savior, and we are saved only through faith in Jesus Christ.

Our Purpose: Enriching and renewing lives by bringing Christ to our community.

We believe God put His church in this location so we could bring the Good News of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ to the southern Springfield, Ohio area. We do this through several outreach programs, listed in the tabs above.

Our Worship Services:

Worship with Holy Communion is at 10:00am every Sunday.

  • 1. The 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month will be Contemporary-style services.
  • 2. The 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month will be Traditional Lutheran services.
  • 3. The 5th Sunday of the month will be “blended” services.
