Serve with Us
Serve with Us
Christ-centered service is often transformational. It can change both the life of the one who serves as well as the person who is served.
Service connects with other practices of discipleship in the ELCA-wide Call to Discipleship: prayer, study, worship, invitation, encouragement, and giving. Prayer and study of Scripture are important as we turn to God for direction and guidance in the ways in which we are called to serve. Worship is a way to deepen our commitment to serve others and celebrate our blessings.
Service is a living witness to our faith that provides opportunities for us to invite others to learn more about Jesus. Through service, we encourage those who are struggling to go on and restore hope in their lives. Jesus says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back” (Luke 6:38).
The Social Ministry Committee extends Christian compassion and helpfulness to persons in need, primarily in the local community. The committee participates in a variety of benevolence projects and distributes funds allocated to the committee. We meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 7pm (except for July, August, and January). Please contact the Chair listed the Leadership section of the Home page if you are interested in being part of the Social Ministry committee.
Seasonal Participation Opportunities
The Handyman Group
The Handyman Group meets weekly (except in summer) on Thursday mornings from 9:00-11:30 AM.
This is a dedicated fixit group typically made up of retired men. They meet to keep the church in good
working order by doing the things the janitor just can’t accomplish by himself. This group is always looking
for more members. If you would like to join give the office a call or just come by on a Thursday morning
and lend us a hand. Many hands make light work!
