Our Lord calls us to serve our neighbors in need. Christ Lutheran serves the LaVale community through an emergency relief fund, a gift drive at Christmas, and food baskets at Thanksgiving and Easter. We host a variety of organizations in our church building and are avid supporters of:
- Food Pantry at LaVale Methodist ChurchOur social Ministry Committee continues to collect food that is then taken to the Food Pantry at LaVale United Methodist Church. The committee is thankful for all contributions. If you like a suggestion, perhaps peanut butter for October, baked beans and soups for November, spaghetti and sauce for December.
- Lutheran World Relief
Christ Lutheran’s Middle School youth leaders recently visited the offices of LWR in Baltimore to learn more about the ministry of LWR and to receive educational material for their Sunday Class.
- Crop Walk
Crop Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world.
- REACH MEAL – A free community meal is served on the last Saturday of each month.
We also seek to expand our understanding of and involvement in the political process, advocating in non-partisan ways against hunger and for social justice.
