Reaching Out to Change Lives
The people of Christ Lutheran Church recognize that serving those beyond our doors is central to who we are. Here are just some of the programs we support:
Local Mission Partners
Mount Olive Food Pantry
Back on My Feet
Meals on Wheels
Texas Ramps Project
National/International Mission Partners
Lutheran World Relief
Since 2013, the ELCA has called on all congregations to have a "God's Work, Our Hands" Sunday. On this day, we perform outreach activities in our communities. Here at Christ Lutheran, we hold a special Outreach Sunday worship service in which we are commissioned for mission. Then we depart the church in groups to engage in various service projects, such as handing out breakfast to day laborers, organizing pantries at food kitchens, mowing grass and landscaping at other churches, making health kids for Lutheran World Relief and much more. This year, Outreach Sunday will take place on October 4.
Fall Project: Fill a Basket, Fill a Need
With Thanksgiving coming pretty soon, CLC has an opportunity to help those in need who are being served by the Mt Olive Lutheran Food Pantry. We are collecting baskets of groceries to make a bountiful Thanksgiving meal. During September and October, with the combined efforts of the congregation and the Preschool, our goal is to fill 50 baskets and thus fulfill the need of 50 families! So as you do your grocery shopping, consider picking up an additional item or two for a Thanksgiving basket. We're collecting these donations every Sunday in September and October.
