No matter how long you have been a Christian this class will bring something new and powerful to your Christian walk!  This group will take you on a journey as you explore four important areas of your walk with God.

  1. How does your Spirit, Soul and Body affect your walk with God? What does it mean to walk in the Spirit.
  2. What does it mean to commitment everything to the Lord and why.
  3. How do my words affect my future?
  4. How can I be cleansed from the issues of the past?

Come ready to participate in honest discussions; to learn deeper ways of communicating with God and be prepared to change, as you explore God’s Word and allow Him to transform your life.

Four Keys to Hearing God’s Voice – Thursday, 6:15-8:00 pm    Led by Claudia Hill

Do you struggle to hear God’s voice? Ever gone to seek the Lord in prayer and felt that your prayers just bounced off the ceiling?  Ever sought God in earnest prayer to give you wisdom or direction and heard nothing in reply? Wish you could learn to clearly pick out His voice within your heart?  This group will take you on a scriptural journey that will reinforce the truth that God still speaks to His children today.

Pastoral Care Ministry Opportunities

April 25, 2013

Jo-BowmanDear CLC family,

As a family at CLC, we are experiencing some wonderful opportunities to care for the needs those who are going through difficult times like illnesses, hospitalizations or rehab, or death in the family.

Pastoral Care Ministry has been so rewarded by providing meals, helping with yard work or even doing chores around the home.  This allows the person or family to focus on recovery or caring for their loved one.  We have also helped families pack–up and move since some of our CLC  families are in the military and are with us for a season.

There is always room for anyone who would like to join us, so we would love to know if you are interested in helping in any of these ways, and would be willing to be notified by email when a need arises.

If you would like to help in any of the ways below, and would like to be placed on an email notification email list, Please reply to, and let me know in which way you would like to help.

1- Making meals
2- Inside house chores like cleaning
3- Outside house chores like yard work
4- Running errands, giving rides
5- Packing or moving

Sometimes we have several needs all at once and other times there are no needs for a while.

You will receive an email when there is a need and you can email me back that you would like to help.

I will contact you with the final details like contact person, dates, diet restrictions etc.

God Bless You,

Jonell Bowman
