Do you enjoy repairing vehicles? If so, consider getting involved in CLC's Car Care Ministry. We will be performing maintenance and minor repairs for low-income individuals who need reliable and safe transportation.


Now seeking volunteers to perform minor auto repairs.
Contact Curt Jones if you would like to serve!



Teammates Mentoring Program

Holmes Elementary has asked our church if we would find several men and women who are willing to serve as mentors to their elementary boys and girls. Please contact Curt Jones for more information.

The Lincoln Public Schools currently has 719 children who are waiting to be assigned a mentor. If you have the desire to make a positive difference in the life of a young person, consider becoming a Teammates Mentor in 2016. It only requires meeting with a child for one hour per week over the lunch hour during the school year.
