Begun in 1903, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church (Evangelische Lutherische Christus Gemeinde zu Swan Creek) exists for the same purpose that it was begun: to proclaim the complete and unaltered gospel of Jesus Christ to those gathered within its walls and the community outside of them. Who could imagine that a gathering of seven men in the home of Frederick Nehmer July 26, 1903, would one hundred years later still be producing fruit, namely, a thriving congregation of more than 300 souls? Two church buildings and twelve pastors later, we at Christ are just as eager to serve the Shields and Saginaw area with the pure gospel of Jesus Christ as those seven ambitious families who established our congregation with their own sweat, time, treasures, and talents. One hundred years have past since Christ Lutheran opened its doors to its community and, Lord willing, they will stay open for a hundred more!
