Benevolence

Sharing a significant portion of our operating budget in support of charitable organizations has been a valued practice and tradition at Christ Lutheran Church.  For many years, we have dedicated 20% of our regular offerings to help organizations whose mission is to address the needs of those less fortunate both in our community and beyond.  You will find that this high level of a benevolence percentage is unique among congregations and is part of what defines us at Christ Lutheran Church.

We are attracted to giving financial support to organizations in which our members are also active volunteers.  The following is a list of charitable organizations that our congregation supports financially as well as through volunteer efforts:
