Pack Lunches for People Experiencing Homelessness
Christ Lutheran is committed to providing lunches for 30 individuals each Wednesday through the end of April 2021. Our Costa Mesa partner, Trellis will make sure that these sack lunches are provided to anyone in need at the Check-in Center.
Sign up HERE to indicate how many lunches you are able to pack.
Project Hope Alliance is a local Costa Mesa non-profit that's mission is to "end the cycle of homelessness, one child at a time". Their staff has worked creatively during COVID to meet the needs of kids who are experiencing homelessness and to provide you and your whole family with monthly projects that you can do at home.
Simply decorate and fill a box of gifts for a kid and include Valentine’s Day cards to share with their friends! These boxes will provide a sense of belonging and self-confidence that all kids deserve. Check out details HERE on what to pack and where to drop off your Hope in a Box.
We believe that God hears us when we pray and that He can do more than we can ask or imagine. Check out how you can pray with the Church throughout Costa Mesa and Orange County.

There is a great need for blood donations as hospitals continue to be overwhelmed across the state. Our next blood drive is coming up this fall!
Where: Christ Lutheran, Gymnasium
If you've never donated blood, consider being a first-time donor. Check out the information HERE on what to expect throughout the blood donation process.
Schedule an Appointment
If you are healthy and able to donate blood, schedule your appointment at your local facility. There are approximately 600 blood drives that have been canceled due to gathering limitations, which means 18,000 units will not be received.
Contribute to the Agape fund
When people are in financial need, one of the places they turn to is their church. We love to respond with financial assistance, when our Agape Fund has the available financial resources.
For donation by check or online, please include "Agape" in the memo.
Checks may be mailed directly to Christ Lutheran Church & School.
