CCCSG has a mission to promote a better understanding of cancer and increase the knowledge of available resources for patients and their caregivers. 

We meet the last Thursday of each month at the Burlington Library at 7pm. This meeting is for survivors, current crusaders, caregivers, family and friends to share their story and give support and hope to those still fighting that there can be more tomorrows. Occasionally we'll have speakers about various topics.

Funds are raised through fundraisers, like the annual Soup Luncheon, Quartermania, and the Golf Classic. Private and memorial donations are also accepted.

ALL FUNDS RAISED STAY IN COFFEY COUNTY.

We are not affiliated with the American Cancer Society. Money is used to aid fellow residents in various ways depending on each individual's situation and needs.

November 2018: Lutheran World Relief

posted Nov 5, 2018, 9:54 AM by TLC Burlington   [ updated Nov 5, 2018, 9:56 AM ]

 Related imageIn 1945, World War II left an estimated one-fifth of the world’s Lutherans homeless. Here in the United States, Lutheran churches in at least 20 states mobilized to help in Europe through a new agency called Lutheran World Relief. Much has changed in nearly 75 years. But in thousands of congregations, in millions of offerings and in uncounted prayers, U.S. Lutherans continue to support Lutheran World Relief’s work.

Lutheran World Relief was there in the late 1940s, when 800,000 Palestinians were forced from their homes by the creation of the state of Israel … in the early 1950s when Hong Kong, Korea and Bangladesh and much of Asia was mired in strife … during the 1970s and ’80s, when civil wars and drought plagued Africa. 

Today, Lutheran World Relief operates in East and West Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East, helping some of the world’s poorest communities build the resilience they need to thrive.

September 2018: Lutheran Heritage Foundation

posted Sep 4, 2018, 9:54 AM by TLC Burlington

LHF translates and publishes Christian books - such as Luther's Small Catechism and children's Bibles - to introduce people to Jesus in a language they can understand.  LHF was chosen as our mission of the month for September because of their support of Rev. Jonathan Clausing's mission in Africa, providing free educational materials for the students and parishes. All in Swahili-the language most commonly spoken in the region.

LCMS Joint Seminary Fund

posted Jul 5, 2018, 10:34 AM by TLC Burlington   [ updated Jul 5, 2018, 10:39 AM ]


Excellent seminaries are important to everyone who needs the Gospel. Well-formed pastors, deaconesses, ordained missionaries, and theological leaders are vital to our life together as they faithfully and accurately teach the Gospel.
The LCMS supports two seminaries-Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Ind. and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, with Sunday-morning worship offerings set aside by congregations for district and national/international work. But it's not enough to support one seminary, let alone both.  So the Joint Seminary Fund was created to help fill the gap.  This fund provides these seminaries with unrestricted funds to use as needed in order to prevent passing rising educational costs on to students through higher tuition.

May 2018--Trinity Lutheran Church Building Fund

Some might wonder, "Can a church building fund be a mission?" The answer is "Yes." 

In Exodus, even before the people of Israel came to the Promised Land for the first time, God gave Moses a command in Exodus thirty-five, "Moses said to all the congregation of the people of Israel, 'This is the thing that the LORD has commanded. Take from among you a contribution to the LORD. Whoever is of a generous heart, let him bring the LORD's contribution...' (Exodus 35:4-5a)" From there, the verse goes on to list all that's needed to make the Tent of Meeting, also known as the Tabernacle.

And how did the people of God respond? "And they came, everyone whose heart stirred him, and everyone whose spirit moved him, and brought the LORD's contribution to be used for the tent of meeting, and for all its service, and for the holy garments. So they came, both men and women. All who were of a willing heart... (Exodus 21-22a)"

The fact is, what the church facility looks like can draw and also distract people from attending that church, and therefore whether they hear God's Word. We have done many great things recently to our church, but there is still lots more that can be done!  Plus, there will always be regular maintenance items that need taken care of. Any future projects or maintenance needs will have to be funded either out of remaining budget or by special offerings. This Church Building Fund will help to get ahead of the need.

But there's good news! In Exodus, the people gave so much "Moses gave command, and word was proclaimed throughout the camp, 'Let no man or woman do anything more for the contribution for the sanctuary. ' So the people were restrained from bringing, for the material they had was sufficient to do all the work, and more. (Exodus 36:6-7)" 

Will you help? May's Mission of the Month is for the Trinity Lutheran Church Building Fund.

*We want to hear from you! We value your input. If you have ideas or recommendations for future projects or maintenance items, please submit them using this link
