CL Seniors meets the fourth Thursday of the month at 9:30 a.m. in the Church Hall. Beginning with devotions, coffee and rolls, the Seniors plan activities and service projects, select field trips to take, choose programs and presentations to see. As a group and individually, the CL Seniors are involved many church activities (worship assistants, mailing crew, LWR pick-up day, long range planning, quilters, soap drive, greeters, Lenten suppers, properties) and community service events (Rebuilding Together in April, food pantry deliveries, etc.)
CLC BALL TEAMS
Christ Lutheran adult members have the opportunity to participate in both basketball and softball church leagues. Currently there are 2 CLC men’s basketball teams and 1 co-ed softball team. Historically our teams have relatively successful seasons, but most often is heard how much fun they have had as they get to know each other.
Family Ministry is geared toward families with preschool and elementary age children. This group plans family events 3-4 times a year. They have enjoyed a Western Night, Sports Evening, Hayride, Bible Road Rally, trip to Indiana Beach, a Gary Railcats Game, and more. To balance out all the fun, each family hosts a monthly birthday party for local children who attend Hilltop House Daycare. This act of service by parents and children together is a great way for parents to pass faith on to their children.
The CLC Dinner Group is open to all adult members of Christ Lutheran. Gatherings are planned for every other month at members’ homes. These get togethers have taken different formats from appetizers to a BBQ cook-out to an Octoberfest celebration. Often a service project is incorporated into the gathering.
Our women’s group was organized in 2003. Presently we have 5 Circles meeting throughout the year as well as a very active board. The women hold 2 fundraisers a year, which in the past have included an Augsburg Fortress book sale, a Fall Harvest Sale, a Garden & Bake Sale, and a Christmas Cookie Walk. Additionally 2 fellowship events are sponsored by the women yearly. We have enjoyed a Chinese Dinner, a Spring Tea, and “The Greatest Gift of All” Christmas event to name a few. The CLC Women are affiliated with the Women of the ELCA organization.
Our Men's Group meets on the first Saturday of the month at 8:00 a.m. at the church. They enjoy breakfast (prepared by one of their members), Bible study and fellowship. The men have hosted a Lenten Dinner, attended a work day at Lake Luther and pitched in at a local homeless shelter.
