Social ministry encompasses such a broad variety of programs, and is led by many efficient church members. In our congregation it includes the clothing center, which gathers and distributes used clothing to those in need, and the quilting group, which makes and distributes over 125 quilts per year. The quilts are distributed all over the world through Lutheran World Relief.
Last year our members assisted in building a home for Habitat for Humanity, and we have committed to a $6,000. contribution to help defray costs for this home.
A part of our offerings each year is designated for World Hunger. We serve a Thanksgiving meal, and distribute toys and quilts to those in need at Christmas.
Our facilities are used by many groups such as AA, 180 Women's center, and choral groups. We also support Crop Walk and Lunch Break with monetary and food donations. We hold a large garage sale in October which benefits many of our programs.
In addition to helping others, we enjoy coffee and refreshments after the Sunday Morning Worship service, special dinners, women's groups (WELCA and Circles).
We are friendly people, and strive to welcome everyone to our church.
