Christ Community Lutheran School Giving Opportunities
With each season comes new opportunities for learning, growing, and giving.
This takes place in the Fall and is an exciting day for our walkers and bikers. The kids work hard for several weeks in order to meet their fundraising goals. They are rewarded with exciting prizes that motivate them, such as movie days, brand new bikes, field trips, and ice cream socials. The monies they raise go toward new equipment and supplies for their school, such as lunch tables and technology. Never underestimate the capabilities of motivated young students!
Jeff Stern Memorial Golf Tournament
Jeff Stern was an important leader in our school ministry, serving as board chair for many years. He oversaw many changes and much growth at Christ Community as well as the building of our new school facility in 2001.
Jeff was a loving father to Zach and Allie Stern (former CCLS students). A long time golfer, the school golf tournament was renamed in his honor after he passed away in 2006. Jeff is missed but not forgotten by everyone who knew him! Proceeds go to the Student Aid Program.
Watch for your sponsorship opportunity in September-October each year!
Gilbert Paschka Adopt-A-Student Program
Gilbert Paschka, a lifelong member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church had a passion for Lutheran education. He was excited to hear about new families enjoying the blessings of a Lutheran school. In Gilbert’s memory, the Board of Directors has established an Adopt-A-Student Program. The Gilbert Paschka Adopt-A-Student Program encourages church members to step forward in faith and sponsor or co-sponsor a student whose family demonstrates financial need above and beyond the capacity of Student Aid. The program has multiple benefits; it allows children to enroll at CCLS who otherwise may not be able to afford the tuition and it allows church members to demonstrate good stewardship of the financial blessings God has given them by sharing their gifts and multiplying our ministry.
This is the biggest fundraiser of the CCLS school year. It operates as both a silent auction and a live auction. After participants have enjoyed a full meal, they are led through the silent auction items. These have been donated from local businesses and crafted by area artisans throughout the year in preparation for this event. Other items are donated to the General Store, such as home baked items, and handmade home goods. The last part of the evening is the live auction, with some other popular games tossed into the thrilling mix. It's a fun, can't-miss evening for the whole family!
