Our Story

Welcome to Family of Christ Lutheran Church, a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS).

We are a growing church with a community focus located in St. Joseph Township between Hudson, Somerset, New Richmond and Stillwater, MN.

Whether you've been a Christian for years or are searching for Christ's impact in your life we have ministries to guide you through your journey. Faith in Jesus is the most valuable gift one can have. We pray that you, due to God's grace, have received this gift. Our goal is to help you deepen and share that faith with others. May God richly bless you in your walk with the Lord!

Our Story


Chad Czischke


Pastor Chad Czischke came to Family of Christ in June 2015 to serve as our Vacancy Pastor.  The congregation extended an official Call in September 2015, which he accepted, and we welcomed him as our new Pastor on October 11, 2015.

Pastor Czischke graduated from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO in May 2006.  He was placed as the Pastor of Immanuel in Eagle Bend, MN and St. Matthew's in Clarissa, MN, where he served until November 2012.  He then took a Call as the Associate Pastor to Our Savior's in Mankato, MN.  Pastor Czischke is also active in The Minnesota Army National Guard, and in March 2012 was commissioned as a Chaplain.  He then deployed with his Battalion from June 2014-May 2015.  Upon returning from deployment Pastor Czischke and his family joined our family at Family of Christ.

Pastor Czischke was married to his wife Jennifer on August 20, 2005, and they have two daughters, Alexis and Ainsley.
