About Central Lutheran Church
Welcome to Central Lutheran Church. Located in Yakima, Washington, we are a faithful and diverse congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
In 1926, our congregation became the first ever successful merger of three Lutheran congregations from 3 different Lutheran bodies in this country. Unless you are Scandinavian, that might sound simple. But if you are bearing Scandinavian genes, you know that must mean God really had to want this congregation to be born.
We believe that gracious effort of God’s has been a gift to us, to the community, to the wider Church, and we believe, to the future. Central continues to rely on God’s guiding, God’s grace and God’s providential surprises in our life and ministry here. If God guides you in this direction, please do come and add to the gift God continues to make of us.
