If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. “Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.” GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements: Video, discussion group, and personal study and reflection. We will meet on Mondays 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM in the Library at the Escondido campus of Community Lutheran Church. This group will be facilitated by licensed therapist Katy Sensmeier. Call the church office 760-739-1650 to register.


In 2005, a Columbarium was built on the Escondido campus.  It has a capacity of over 1,000 niches and is located on the south side of the campus near the parking lot.  It was built to have a chapel-like atmosphere for services and personal reflection.  For information and pricing, please contact Catherine Richter at the church office - 760-739-1650.

Cooks on Call 

Our church provides meals to families in the church who are in need. If you would like to receive a meal or know someone who could use one, please fill out this form. If you are interested in being part of this team, please contact the church office at 760-739-1650.

Christian Counseling Center 

The Counseling Center is located in the offices of Keturakat Hall at Community Lutheran Church and is staffed by Mrs. Katy Sensmeier- Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist MFC #49789.  Katy's private practice provides psychotherapy for individuals, couples, children and families.  Through her personal and professional experience, she believes God created us with the innate ability to heal. Just as as our physical scrapes and bruises heal when tended to and cared for, so can our mind and spirit.  Please feel free to call Katy or schedule a twenty minute free initial consultation with any questions you may have regarding the therapuetic process and her theoretical perspective. 

For rates and scheduling information, contact Katy:
