Quilts are assembled, displayed, blessed, and then shipped to Third World countries where they are used for warmth, for privacy walls, for rugs, etc.
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 missions and serve others in the US and in the world. In the summer of 2019, a trip to Savannah and to Guatemala is planned. In July 2018, the youth served in New Orleans by helping paint service centers, sortin Mardi Gras beads that are sold to benefit the homeless ad they even had some fun! In July 2017, the high schoolers drove to Toronto where they served food in a shelter, painted homes and stopped at Niagra Falls.
