THROUGH SERVING...

Caring Ministries
Listening...Strengthening...Encouraging...Refreshing...Restoring...Caring...
Our church has many members who dedicate themselves to helping others in our congregation through many caring ministries. While we cannot measure all of the ways our members reach out to each other to offer support, some of the more visible ministries include: Grief Share, Compassionate Cooks, Prayer Voices, Prayer Chapel, Agape Callers, Journey Through Grief, Pastoral Visitations, Lutheran Food Bank and Lutheran Social Ministries. Please pick up a “Caring Ministries” brochure which explains these ministries in more detail.
As our congregation continues to grow, there are limitless needs for caring as well as limitless opportunities to serve others who need care. If you are in need of support either through prayer or other caring services offered by the church please reach out by contacting the church. Likewise, if you have compassion and gifts in providing caring support to others, please consider sharing your gifts by contacting the church.

 “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
                                            Galatians 6:2
