Jesus has given us our purpose in His Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) and CCLG¹s mission statement reflects those marching orders: ³The Christian Church of Lemon Grove exists to reach and preach and teach in Jesus¹ name, bringing people to eternal life and maturity in Him.²
We have a special heart for the children and teens in our area. In addition to our Youth Ministry and traditional outreach events, such as Vacation Bible School and our annual Harvest Festival on Oct. 31, we sponsor on our campus the Christian Church of Lemon Grove Preschool for ages two to five. It not only strives for educational excellence, but is also Christ-centered and Bible-based.
We also have a heart for the hurting. We have often helped in the work of the San Diego Rescue Mission and are currently involved in the Interfaith Shelter Network of San Diego County, which not only houses the homeless in churches on a rotational basis, but helps them find work and get back on their feet.
In all these ways, as well as through our two Sunday worship gatherings and our many Bible classes and small group fellowships, we seek to bring people of all ages to eternal life and maturity in Christ.
