LuCom Campership Program is gearing up to send 20 elementary and middle school children to camp for a week of fun, friendship, faith, outdoor adventures, silliness, and unplugging! They will learn through various activities how to connect to nature, connect to the Holy Spirit, and connect to new friends.  We look for campers whose family would not have this opportunity for their child without the assistance of our scholarships.  Our goal is to send 10 campers for the week of June 24 -29 and 10 campers for the week of July 8-13. This year we will accept applications for children in two age groups: 1. upcoming 4th through 6th graders and 2. upcoming 7th through 9th graders. The average cost per child is $370. Let’s pitch in and continue our over 50 year history of LuCom camperships for deserving children from our area. Please make your tax deductible donation: Write your check to Christ Lutheran with “Campership” on the memo line. 

Adult Bible Study - Come join the lively discussion on Monday mornings from 10:30 to noon.  Each week we gather in the chapel to study and discuss the scripture readings for the following Sunday.  No experience is necessary.  Come when you are able.  See you there!   

Neighbor To Neighbor –  If you are in need of transportation to an appointment or the grocery store, a meal brought in, or if you could use some yard work or minor household chores done, please contact the church office (982-8334) to schedule a volunteer.

Current needs for the CIA Pac a Snac ministry are oatmeal, fruit cups and dry erase markers for the new semester.  We are still looking for volunteers to pack snacks once a month in teams of three to four at Grandin Court Baptist church.It only takes an hour.  Thank you for your continued support of this important ministry.
