The start of a New Year … and “What Does Our Love Look Like?” First of all we celebrate leadership provided in our study groups, our service projects, and our social events. The Love reflected through leadership is a catalyst for growth and maturing. Most of the existing activities continue into the New Year. Please see our
brochure or check the church calendar for specifics.


Our “Little Free Pantry” is scheduled for January delivery. We share in this partnership with Trinity Lutheran Church and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Adult Ministry will assume management, but we will rely on your help for donations. We will keep you posted on specific needs!

These are some of the ways that reflect “What Our Love Looks Like”. We will continue to care about people, their spiritual growth and offer a variety of ways for them to connect with fellow believers so they are challenged to grow, and reach out to someone else on the journey. See you on the path!!!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

The Holiday Basket project went just beautifully thanks to the many volunteers who shopped, packed and delivered.  Over 100 volunteers were involved in this ministry to help make the holidays a little better for 79 families in our community.  It is always amazing to see so many hands step forward. Every year with faith, I trust that we will meet the financial needs so we may do whatever is necessary to aid our families. Thank you for your generosity.  You have given many blessing to others and God bless you for what you have done this Holiday season.

Bonnie Lund, Holiday Basket Co-coordinator
