Mission and Outreach

The ministries listed below are all supported by Chisago Lake Lutheran Church and its members in many ways.  These ministries address the needs and concerns of persons who need our help to continue functioning from day to day.  They require our help, our time and our prayers.  Persons who are interested in these ministries and want to participate may do so by calling the church office at 651-257-6300 to volunteer time, activity, love and concern.  Join us.  We need you for those who need us.
