Welcome to our Website! 

CTLC is an ecumenical organization of over 30 local churches working with the support of area business and social service groups to meet basic human needs on a temporary and/or emergency basis.  Our staff is composed entirely of volunteers who assist 200 plus families per week.  These include street people, the elderly, the disabled, and those marginally employed or unemployed.

  • If you are a person needing assistance from CTLC, please go to our Services page for a description of the kinds of assistance we offer and our hours of operation.
     

  •  If you or your organization would like to volunteer to work during the week in assisting families and individuals who come in for help, please click on our Volunteers page.  There are several areas that you can volunteer to work in.
     

  • If you need someone to speak to your group or organization about CTLC, speakers are available.  Just call us during Donation Hours (see below) at 254-778-6885 and ask for the executive director, Jim Hornsby, or email us at ctlc@ctlcministries.org and we'll set something up. 
     

  •  If you would like to make a donation of food, clothing and/or household items, please see the Donations page.  Financial donations are also needed to purchase many of the food and hygiene items given out information on how to make such a donation can also be found on this page.
     

  •  At times CTLC runs short of certain items that we would normally try to have available to give to the families/individuals who need them.  You will find a list of those items on the Current Needs page.

ANNOUNCEMENTS and NEEDS

 
 
  • The KWTX Food for Families Food Drive is on Friday November 21 at Baylor Scott and White.  If you cannot volunteer for a few hours, please pray for the individuals and businesses who will be at the event.
     
  • The Weekend Nutrition Ministry provides food for 400 students weekly.  We need volunteers to pick up and deliver backpacks Tuesday & Thursday.  We also need help packing the backpacks at CTLC.
     
  • The new walk-in freezer is paid off and up and 2/3 full!  Our next project --: funds for a refrigerated box truck to pick up fresh produce & refrigerated/frozen items from  various places like HEB.  Last month a 16-foot refrigerated box was donated so we need a truck with a 16-foot chassis to handle the box.
     
  • Prayer Needs:  the homeless who come to CTLC for help; for CTLC volunteers -- several long- term volunteers have concerns about their health or the health of their family members.  Some have suffered the loss of close family members recently.
     
  • We need donations of feminine hygiene products, rice (1-2 lb size), mac & cheese, pasta (1-2 lb size), ramen noodles, soup, meals in a can (Spaghettios, Ravioli), small cans of meat, razors, shaving cream, shampoo, deodorant, tooth paste, tooth brushes, baby wipes, diapers sizes 1 & 2, and travel-size toiletriesAlso new blankets of all sizes.
     

  • Feed My Sheep needs volunteers to do general repairs on the building and to serve and/or prepare meals. Here is an FMS average monthly talley.
     

  • Pickup and Delivery of Food -- drivers with trucks are needed to pick up food locally and deliver it to CTLC.  Volunteers are needed for Mondays & Fridays (8:30-noon) or Wednesdays (6:30-11:30 AM).
     

  • The outreach ministry with Centex Alcohol & Drug Rehab is ongoing. Each week the Rehab center transports 8-to-10 new male residents to CTLC where they are given a Bible, toiletries and clothing within 24 hours of exiting prison.  Please pray for these men as they start their 90-day program.
     

  • CTLC is partnering with 27 churches to help feed the homeless in Temple.  Feed my Sheep on Avenue G provides a hot meal and a bag dinner for about 150 people daily.  It's open 7 days a week from 11:30 to 12:30 with soup night from 6:00-7:00 on Thursdays  Please contact Jim Hornsby if you want to help.
     
  • We are still looking for a good used (good priced) refrigerated box truck so we can get more food from the truckers at the truck stops.  And we are looking for 9 new computers (wireless internet) for a computer class.
     
  • It takes  35 VOLUNTEERS each day CTLC is open to clients to meet their needs.  Volunteers, one or a group, are needed!  Several positions are open;  filing, computer, and general office skills are helpful.  Contact Jim Hornsby for more information.  Volunteer training is held every Wednesday morning from 8:00-9:00.
     
  • We always have a great need for used pew Bibles, paperback or hard cover, if you are needing to find a new home for them.
     
  • We have a great need for able-bodied men to help load and unload and at least 1 man with a pick-up truck to pick up food from TLC and then help unload it at CTLC on Wednesday mornings at 8:00.  Anyone who volunteers should be able to lift heavy loads with no problem.
