Christ Lutheran Church is providing an alternative gift giving option for families with children and teens in our community who want to give a gift to someone they care about but lack the money to do so. At Santa's Workshop they can choose among various tables to make jewelry, personalized gifts, stuffed bears, Christmas ornaments, and other items. Lunch and snacks will be provided for everyone.
Whatever is not claimed by the end of the weekend is taken to Thriftsmart, a local thrift store, and for every 100 lbs. of donated material given, we receive a $10 Gift Card we can then give to others in need. It's a wonderful way to share what we have with our communities who might need furniture, clothing, nonperishable food or other household items. THANK YOU for your generosity and kindness in this Thanksgiving season!
At the Lord’s table we gather with the faithful of every time and place, trusting that the promises of God will be fulfilled and that all tears will be wiped away in the new Jerusalem.
ALSO, we will be celebrating our Annual Thanksgiving Dinner this Sunday after worship. Please join us a bring a side dish or dessert to share. ALL ARE WELCOME.
Playground Repair and Clean up Sunday, September 10th
After worship we will head outdoors to work on the playgrounds that are used by our children and the children of our mission congregations. Bring some work clothes and gloves and yard tools and let’s make the playground a fun place for the children in our community to play!
Let the little children come...Jesus said.
Let’s create a fun and safe place for them to play!
Before we work we will talk about how we can serve over lunch. Bring work gloves, a dessert, salad, or chips. Hot Dogs and drinks will be provided.

Loss can include many life events: divorce, ending a relationship/estrangement, moving, loss of health, loss of job, finances, etc. However, there is a proven method for recovery that's been around for decades.
The Grief Recovery Method provides sequential, prescribed steps for overcoming grief. It puts you in the driver's seat and helps you actively process your grief in an emotionally safe environment while in connection with others. The course is 8-weeks and will start Thursday, July 27th at 7pm. Anyone interested can sign up in the church office, or call Patrick White at 615-893-1596.
This Grief Recovery Group will also be participating in a study by Kent State University. Details will be discussed in the opening session.
