Christ Lutheran goes beyond the state of Georgia to help others throughout the United States and the world. In the past few years, our fearless volunteers and high school mission trips have traveled from New Orleans to Toronto to Kenya. We have used God's love to help others in need.
In March 2018, Pastor Tim led a five person team from Christ Lutheran Church (CLC) in West Cobb County, USA to the remote Church in Arsim, Samburu County, Kenya. Missionaries Julia and Vincent Harrington-Leiyoole guided them throughout their journey from Nairobi to Arsim and back. The CLC congregation donated 100 Luci Lites (solar powered LED lamps), Tootsie Roll pops, popcorn, pencils and sharpeners, workbooks, whirligigs, etc. The team carried the above items across several continents by plane, truck and foot to the residents of Arsim and Sedai villages. On this service/learning trip the team saw a dispensary in Arsim, a clinic in Sedai, the "Jesus" movie translated into Swahili & attended by 170, the school and church in Arsim, met with locals at their manyattas, started to learn how they live and began a partnership between our two church communities.
Every year, our high school teens travel on a week long trek to mission and serve others in the United States and the world. This past July, the kids went to New Orleans to help paint service centers, sort Mardi Gras beads that are sold to benefit the homeless, and even had some fun. InNex July 2017, the high schoolers drove to Toronto, Canada where they helped serve food in a shelter, painted homes, and even stopped at Niagra Falls.
In 2019, they are planning on going to Guatemala. Look for future information in the newsletter.
