Central Portland Community Announcements

JOIN always appreciates ALL donations.

With warm weather coming, there is a great need for men and women’s socks and underwear, travel sizes of deodorant, and towels for showers. As always - plastic razors, travel sizes of shampoo, toothpaste and lotion are also in demand.  There is donated bread available, but no peanut butter or jelly to add to it.  Please put any donations that you have in the blue bin in the Fellowship room. Thanks for your generosity.

Gently used or new children’s books to be donated to the New City Initiative Story and Snack program can also be put into the JOIN blue bin. Thank you.


Central Lutheran Church wants to remind you that we offer electronic giving as a way to automate your regular weekly offering through a program called Simply Giving.  Electronic giving offers convenience for individual congregation members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.

Direct Debit Giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to the church’s bank account.

Credit & Debit Card Giving allows you to make offerings automatically on a pre-determined schedule using a credit or debit card.

As you contemplate future contributions, please consider electronic giving.  Download the form HERE.
