Ways to Help Others

Do Justice, Love Mercy & Walk Humbly w/Our God.

This is Micah 6:8. Do we understand what this means?

Here's a short clip to Understand Biblical Justice!

Our recent sermon series, "A Whole New World" and "Following Jesus in the Bay Area," help us get ready. Go to the "Sermons" page and find even more.

Here are some of the CLC supported organizations that we can join to experience Biblical Justice:

  • St. Meal - Help feed the homeless through meals
  • Harbor House - Provides a safe place for students to make strides in their education and more.
  • Project Peace - Works with many religious organizations to mobilize groups where there is need through the Bay Area.
