Community in Christ: Reaching Out

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
A picture is worth a thousand words.   This past month Community Lutheran has been beehive of ministry and mission activity.  Through our backpacking ministry, Vacation Bible School, and the “Day of Service” food packaging event coming up on Sept. 8, we are truly living out our identity.  We are community in Christ, reaching out in love. 
Thank you to all who have served as leaders and team members!  Thank you to all who have given of their time, talents, and financial resources to make these ministries possible. 

This is an exciting time to be connected to the body of Christ called Community Lutheran Church.  When I was installed as your pastor in April, who could have imagined that in a few short months one of my dreams would already come true.  What seemed like a large goal, to raise $2,500 and package 10,000 meals through “Stop Hunger Now” is soon to be a reality.  We now have over 100 servants signed up to package and look to go over the top with our fundraising goal.  Thank you and God bless you. 

Serving together with you in Christ,
Pastor Marty
