Christ Lutheran Church at a Glance

The Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church of Orland Park was founded on September 16, 1888, with services conducted in homes and the village school. The growing congregation had its first house of worship built at 143rd Street and West Avenue; it was dedicated to the Lord in February, 1898. With plans laid for the future growth of the church, our current site was dedicated in October, 1962, with construction of the new building completed in September, 1971. Additional classroom and office spaces were built in 1991 and 2006.

Christ Lutheran Cemetery

Christ Lutheran Cemetery, located at 147th & 82nd Avenue in Orland Park, IL., has been in existence since May 1, 1906. A section immediately south of the original property was purchased in 1986, making it possible to have two driveways off 82nd Avenue for a separate entrance and exit. In 1991 an exchange of land to the west was made between the cemetery and the owners of Silver Lake Country Club.

In the early 1900′s, a cast iron gateway bearing the cemetery name graced the entrance. The present sign, which can be read from either direction, was installed in 1995.

There are a total of 2,058 spaces in the entire cemetery. The cost of each gravesite is $600 and the opening charge is $1,100. Lots are for sale to all Lutherans and their families. Please contact the church office at 708-349-0431 for more information.
