Life in the Spirit

Worship Café

We gather in fellowship following our 10:30 worship service.  Families and friends take turns hosting these gatherings.

Epiphany Dinner

On the 12th day of Christmas we gather to celebrate as a church family after our children share their gifts for the annual pageant.   Dinners can be as simple or elaborate as the team decides.  Estimated time depends on the type of meal.

Lenten Soup Suppers

We gather to share soup and break bread at 6:30pm before our Wednesday Lenten reflections. Friends and family share in bringing soups, bread and drinks.

We gather on Monday evenings during Advent at 7:30pm.  The last two years we have done Holden Evening Prayer.

 Men Cook Lunch

This annual October event features the culinary gifts of the men in the congregation. Anyone can offer the gift of their cooking to share with the congregation following the worship service.

Oktoberfest

This is the annual German food festival featuring our great German cooks.

Summer Picnic

Our annual end of summer picnic brings families together for a fun lunch. Members are asked to provide salad and desserts.

Shawls

Do you knit or crochet? This team gathers for fellowship and to make prayer shawls and scarves. The shawls are given to those who need to feel God’s love surround them during difficult times. These are always available in the Narthex, or taken to those who may be homebound. If you have this gift, consider joining the group.

Quilts

Our quilters sew blankets together and send them to Lutheran World Relief to be distributed around the world. Flat sheets are always needed. Yardage is appreciated to cut into squares.   New quilters are always welcome.

Health Kits

The very simple gesture of giving a Personal Care Kit can give someone the encouragement to start anew, starting with a bath. You can share God’s grace and love by providing that simple comfort. Our Saviour gathers these items and assembles them on behalf of Lutheran World Relief. They are sent to areas that have experienced hurricanes, floods, earthquakes or other disasters.

Youth Group

This group is open to our junior and senior high school students. They attend synod and national gatherings with other Lutheran youth. A team supports fund raising for the national gathering that occurs once every three years. This gathering includes prayer, praise and service activities. The younger group attends a gathering in New Jersey each year.   The event includes worship, learning and social activities. Support for ongoing youth meetings is always needed as the group does various service projects or fun activities during the year.

Clean Up Days
