We believe that Jesus is the hope of the world
Our missions and local outreach efforts are built around three key priorities:
Sharing the Gospel
We believe the gospel is good news to all mankind. It is our first priority in all of our missions efforts.
Empowering the Local Church
We believe that God rescues individuals and gathers them back together as His people called the Church. We strive to always build and work through the local church in our missions efforts, regardless if it is locally or globally.
Meeting Physical Needs
We believe in serving others, whether it’s through the giving of cold water, visiting in prison, mending wounds, building homes, or giving something to eat. We believe these things are simple, practical ways to express the love of Jesus and open the door for the Gospel to be shared.
UPCOMING MISSION TRIPS
June 3rd – 8th, 2019
CLF is taking a short-term mission trip to visit our sister church in one of the dark and difficult neighborhoods in Colombia to love on children and encourage them in their walk with Jesus in the midst of their daily challenges.
Share the gospel and pass out Bibles in a handful of public schools that have given us standing invitations to minister to their student population. Also, join us as we go door-to-door conducting evangelism efforts and visiting families in the Santa Rosa neighborhood.
October 14th – 19th, 2019
CLF is taking a short-term mission trip to Dominican Republic. The team will be joining up and staying with a partner missions organization, Global Effect. The primary activities will be water filter distribution and gospel evangelism with families in the community.
Missions Track is a four week program at CLF designed to help people understand the biblical basis for missions and ways to effectively minister with a team for maximum impact. It is a requirement for any individual wanting to go on a short-term missions trip with CLF.
Upcoming Class Dates
- April 7th – 28th, 2019
- August 4th – 25th, 2019
* Classes take place on 4 consecutive Sundays during 2nd service (11:15 AM – 12:30 PM) in the CLF courtyard.
Missions Track is a four week program at CLF designed to help people understand the biblical basis for missions and ways to effectively minister with a team for maximum impact.
Classes consist of 4 sessions:
1) Theology of missions
2) Ministering cross-culturally
3) Team dynamics
What You Will Gain
The sessions focus on the most important aspects of short-term missions. We want everyone to understand God’s heart for missions and the vital relationship it has to us as a local church. Those who go through the course will grow in their understanding of the ‘why’ behind missions, how to minister cross-culturally, the positives and difficulties of operating within a team, and how to recognize negative triggers and the attacks of the enemy while properly caring for your own well-being.
Each individual wanting to go on a short-term missions trip with CLF will be required to have completed Missions Track prior to their time of departure. Missions Track will be scheduled in such a way that it is available to participate in prior to any short-term missions trip that CLF is offering. Those unable to complete all four sessions prior to departure will need to contact the trip’s team leader or the CLF Missions Director for other potential arrangements.
