"For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life."  John 3:16

God called us to serve!

"We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his  faith.  If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully."  Romans 12:6-8

The World Health Organization reports that there are more than 161 million people throughout the world that suffer from severe visual impairment.  The desire of Lutheran Braille Workers is to provide the Word of God to people with visual impairment in the technology they need to read God's Word for themselves.  Lutheran Braille Workers is the largest ministry in the world providing free Braille and specialized Large Print Bibles to people with visual impairment.

Braille Work Center #148 was started at Christ Lutheran Church in September, 1981.  The 25th anniversary of our work center was celebrated with a potluck dinner on September 24, 2006.  Click here for a slide show of pictures taken at that dinner.  About 10 volunteers now work in two different groups twice a month, producing 700 books each year to be sent to Third World countries.  The work center is an entity of Lutheran Braille Workers, Inc. who provides the Word of God to Third World countries who have no means to produce Braille material.  Their needs are so great that they will accept our Braille material and turn away other religious matter sent to their countries.  All of our workers feel they are indeed serving God by spreading His Word to those who might otherwise not hear it!

Rebecca Barrette is the new leader of this group.  If you'd like to help, please contact the Church Office, 806-799-0162.

Active Prayer Chains acquire the immediate and on-going prayers of about 30 of our families at a time of special joy, need, or sorrow among our members and friends.

Seventh and eighth grade students serve as Altar Assistants and Acolytes.  The program is designed to provide an outlet for faith in service to our Lord and in proper use and care of the altar and chancel area of the church.

Ushering for worship services is a program which includes all people of Christ Church who enjoy serving in that capacity.

Offering tellers regularly assist the Financial Secretary in ensuring our returns of God's blessings to His work are appropriately accounted for.

 

Many of our members are involved in various service agencies such as Hospice of Lubbock, Neighborhood House, Foster in Texas, and numerous civic organizations.
