Photo Taken: 11-11-2018

Christ Lutheran Christian Women (CLCW) is the women’s ministry organization of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) here at Christ Lutheran Church. We strive to fulfill the slogan of the ELCA “God’s Work, Our Hands” by putting our faith into action.    

Our purpose state reads:” “As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society and the world.”

Our Christ Lutheran Women are divided into 2 groups called Circles. The two circles are  Elizabeth and Rebecca/Martha.  At our monthly meetings we engage in Bible study with a lesson lead by one of our members, have devotions, an offering, a meeting/planning time and dessert with lots of visiting and laughter. All women are welcome to come to these meetings, or are encouraged  to organize their own circle.  

Our group financially helps various organizations, such as Passages (a home for abused women in Richland Center), Lutheran Campus Ministry, our 3 area food pantries, Bible camps, River Valley School District Fund 21, Bethel Lutheran Homeless Ministry and Lutheran World Relief to name a few.  This year we gifted four local families to make their Christmas more joyous.  We sent forty two Baby and seventy two personal care kits, along with fifty six quilts to the Lutheran World Relief boxcar effort, plus funding to help with the shipping. We sponsored youth who wanted to go to bible camp with scholarships.  We bought gifts for our graduating seniors and for the confirmation students.  We purchased silk floral arrangements to beautify our sanctuary when individuals do not sign up for flowers. We host a party at Greenway Manor to celebrate the birthday of residents with cake and ice cream.  Our Rummage Sale money went towards the purchase of a "Smart Board" for the Fellowship Hall.  We were able to do all this with monies collected from our Bake-less Bake Sale help in February, our circle offerings and the Retired Teacher’s Luncheon that we arrange.  

 

We are women of all ages, gathered in community to support each other on our  faith journey, serve and make a difference in our community and around the world.  We find great joy in growing together in faith and friendship. “Together in Jesus Christ we are freed by grace to live faithfully, witness boldly and serve joyfully.


When Do We Meet ?

The Elizabeth and Rebecca/Martha Circles meet on the second Tuesday of each month during the school year usually at a member’s home.

We have two General Meetings scheduled during the year where all the women meet and the entire congregation is encouraged to attend.
