CLC will be collecting toiletry items as we did last year. Each bag will include deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap and shampoo. Would you consider purchasing several bags’ worth of these items? We will be assembling these bags on December 19.

On Sunday, October 28th at 10 am, John & Bethany Baker will be in service with us. John & Bethany are former CLC members who have been serving in full-time, pastoral ministry the last 26 years in the state of Michigan. Last year, they received an invitation to serve as Missionaries to the island of Curacao, which was supernaturally confirmed by three different prophetic words in three different countries. They will be sharing briefly about their missions work but will also be ministering the Word in our current series, “Empowered.”
