Missions & Service

Clear Lake Nazarene is always looking for ways to be Jesus to our community.

Com2Mex is a 5 day Mission Experience sponsored by Southern Nazarene University over Christmas break.  It is an inexpensive, safe and a fun way to experience missions. This year we are going to Chihuahua, Mexico. The cost is $600 plus your transportation to El Paso Texas. From there to Mexico all expensive are paid. If you are interested call the church office at 291-486-9581,  or Message us.

Each Christmas, we partner with Angel Tree Ministries to give gifts to children of prisoners.

We’re a satellite of an organization called Kids Against Hunger and we’re preparing, funding and shipping thousands of meals to be used by people who are starving all over the world.

outreachWe’ve worked with Houston’s Star of Hope and the Houston Food Bank  and are working with other local ministries and organizations all the time!

And we’re just really getting started!  Look here for more exciting opportunities to do big things for the Kingdom in the Houston area.

 

Local Missions Policy:

The Clear Lake Church of the Nazarene Facilities Committee Members and other CLCN church members who enjoy working on home improvement projects may from time to time take on local missions work to support and help local CLCN members who need help to maintain their quality of living in their home by working on home-maintenance projects.

(Ephesians 2:10 – For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.)

(James 1:27 – Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.)

This policy is established to regulate the use of the NMI Missions budget for Local Missions to assure it is utilized as intended and that the projects undertaken are within the limits set by this policy. Expenditures from the NMI budget must be pre-approved by the NMI President.

  1. The work to be undertaken must be limited to persons who own the home to be worked on.

  2. CLCN local missions volunteers are not in the contracting business and accept no liability and provide no warranty or guarantees for the work performed.

  3. Persons eligible for local missions services are limited to those who

    1. Have limitations of experience in performing the work needed or

    2. Have health limitations that prevent them from performing the work themselves or

    3. Have financial limitations that prevent them from getting the work done or

    4. Have physical limitations that prevent them from performing the work safely themselves.

  4. The work needs to be more than just a cosmetic improvement. It needs to be important for the health or safety of the occupant(s), to maintain the quality of life of the occupant(s), or for the preservation of the property.

  5. If possible, the owner is to purchase and select supplies.

  6. CLCN local missions supply time and labor at no cost to the persons being served.

  7. Donations for services are accepted at CLCN and should be noted NMI – Local Missions, but help is not dependent upon giving.

  8. Concerning fences, they must currently exist and written agreement between property owners must be provided to CLCN before any work can be undertaken on a fence.

  9. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to pull any required City Permits or Homeowner’s Association approvals
