Below is a list of some of the ministries our people are engaged in within our walls:
For urgent needs, a prayer chain is activated, which consists of several members who are alerted by phone and/or email and offer immediate prayer. Our list of ongoing prayer needs is printed on bookmark-sized paper and is included in each week's bulletin for your personal use. Requests include: those who are grieving, missionaries, shut-ins, those hospitalized or undergoing tests or surgery, those with cancer, our troops, and other needs as they arise.
Bible & topical study groups
Opportunities for learning and growth include: men's Bible study, women's Bible study, and Sunday Bible study. Click here for more information on these offerings.
Each member of the congregation is assigned a Shepherd to assist the pastoral staff in caring for the needs of the members. Shepherds are called to be present for those in their care by facilitating regular communication and connectedness and seeing to their spiritual well being through prayer and personal contact.
Prayer shawl ministry
A dedicated group of knitters and crocheters create one-of-a-kind shawls for people who need a special and tangible awareness of God's presence. Prayers are offered as the shawls are being made and then are blessed before they are delivered. Shawls have been given to those undergoing cancer treatments, recovering from surgery, celebrating a new baby, grieving the loss of a loved one, or struggling with ongoing health issues. This group is open to all who are interested and meets the second Tuesday of each month at 9:30am. Click here for more information.
On Our Own
A group of active persons who either through death or by choice are living alone. The group gathers once a month for support and sharing, and goes on frequent outings, day trips, and other fun activities.
The Sand Dollars is our LWML (Lutheran Women's Missionary League) affiliated group. They meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 10am, September-May for business, a program and a monthly project. They support various local, national, and international charities, through collections of items, money, and volunteer time. All women are invited to join in for their meetings.
