INTRODUCTION TO JR. CHIMERS CLASS

August 7 and August 14
10:00 a.m.

 

 

Due to the large number of Jr. Chimers that made their Confirmation in May, we are in need of new chimers to keep our program going. On Tuesdays, August 7 and August 14, from 10:00 to 11:00, any child in grade 2-8 is invited to attend our Introduction to Jr. Chimers. This two-week class will help your child adapt to the Jr. Chimer program and learn the fundamentals of music and the ringing of handchimes. The handchimes are a sweet sounding instrument that is easy for children and younger adults to play. We’d love to have your son or daughter give the handchimes a try.

 

 

If interested, please contact Sandy Knopp at 708-349-0431, x227,

or email her at:  sandraknopp@yahoo.com

FOR SHARON’S ANGELS

2018-07-05 19:31:31 dporzel

Honoring her cousin Sharon’s memory, CLC member Sandie Falco is collecting desperately needed school supplies. These supplies will be distributed first to the children of unemployed and underemployed members and friends of the Christ Lutheran congregation; any additional supplies will be divided between the Orland Township and Sanctuary Lutheran Church (Manhattan). Items can be deposited in the designated box in the narthex. Contact Sandie at 708-403-5999 if you have any questions. If you prefer, checks can be written to Christ Lutheran Church earmarked “school supplies”, and we will do the shopping for you. Please do not write checks to “Sharon’s Angels.” If your children or the children of someone you know are in need of a backpack filled with school supplies, contact the Church Office at 708-349-0431.

WOMEN’S SCRIPTURE AND PRAYER GROUP

► RECLAIM13

 

The WSPG is supporting a charity called Reclaim 13. Age 13 is the average age when most girls are introduced to sex trafficking. Their bodies and their lives are taken to benefit the adults who are supposed to care for them. The best she can hope for is to survive…unless somebody shows her there is another way, a community where she can find love, compassion, and healing– the world God intended, where His love is greater than the fear she has known. Reclaim13 was created to do this – to show these children that they are NOT alone, that people DO care, and people WILL help! For more information on this organization, visit reclaim13.org.
