Christ Lutheran Church is reaching out at home and across the world to further our mission "to know Christ and to make Him known." We contribute to various missions and outreach programs on a routine basis on the second Sunday of each month (MISSION SUNDAY). Envelopes will be available in the pew card holders to place mission offerings in. If members choose to designate a different mission they may indicate that on the envelope. This is a partial listing of the missions CLC contributes to:
May Missions of the Month
We are part of an unbroken chain. Paul - Timothy - faithful pastors - and on and on through the years. This pattern of carefully passing on the faithfully entrusted message is the heartbeat of the Christian church and her mission. The death of Jesus Christ has made a way for God to bring sinful men back to a right relationship with Him– by grace alone through faith alone. This is the message to be proclaimed!
From its inception the Christian church has sent teachers into the world with this message. Well-trained pastors are critically needed in Kenya. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya is the fastest-growing Lutheran church in Africa today. But the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya has a mere 140 pastors to serve 700 congregations with 100,000 members. Project Timothy-Kenya is dedicated to providing a remedy for this need, equipping leaders for the dramatically growing church in Africa.
HEAD OF THE LAKES CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP
Child Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.
CEF has many different ministries for children, but the primary ones are the Good News Club and the 5-Day Club.
The Good News Club and 5-Day Club ministries take place in neighborhood settings such as homes, backyards, schools and community centers all over the world. These fast-paced, one-hour programs are designed to bring the Gospel of Christ to children on their level in their environment. There are 9 good news club in the Duluth area. Christ Lutheran Church is involved with the Good News Club that meets at Piedmont Elementary School once a week through school year with 10 -12 children attending.
Along with these clubs, CEF also has fair, camping, open-air, and internet ministries for children. Last year through these combined ministries over 22.9 million children worldwide heard the Good News.

CLC is very active in distributing food to Union Gospel Mission and Genesis House. The first Sunday of the month is FOOD SHELF SUNDAY. Please remember to bring an item or two to help those less fortunate. Cash donations are also accepted. And if you forget, you can always bring it the next Sunday. Deliveries to the site are on the 1st of each month
CLC not only contributes financially to MN Teen Challenge as part of our Mission of the Month, but they also provide music and witnessing at a service during the month of October. What a wonderful group of men this is and we are not only encouraged but spiritually uplifted by their stories and devotion to God.
CLC has provided "kettle supply" for many years. Our congregational members routinely "man" the kettles for our local Salvation Army. It is not only an uplifting experience but very rewarding one as well. In addition, our members have also donated many toys to the Salvation Army's Toyland Express ministry.
Our thanks to those who have contributed so generously. Your contributions do make a difference.
