Loving Service

“Loving Service at Christ: Across the Street and Around the World” is the second of four videos that highlight each area of the mission statement of Christ Lutheran Church.

The Word of God teaches us that God has called us to be His children in order that we might live out our lives in service to others.

We do this as a gathered church through a variety of service activities both on the local and even international level with such events as – mission trips, serving at the food bank or other local charities, and making Bibles for the blind, just to name a few.

We also do this by encouraging those connected with Christ to serve those in their own personal sphere of connectivity with random acts of kindness and service.

The Loving Service of Christ

Christ Lutheran Church offers many opportunities to serve both the faith community and secular society. From our lunch program for the homeless, to quilting groups who make quilts to be sent to 3rd world countries, to our mission trips and servant activities, those looking to serve others will find an avenue for their interests here.
