OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY
Servanthood opportunities abound! What talents can you share?
The Servanthood Ministry Team coordinates many outreach activities, and we welcome all to bring their time and talent to spread the Good News throughout our community. A sampling of these initiatives is listed below. Details and new initiatives are communicated through the Epistle (electronic newsletter, sign up here to receive it) and the Sunday announcements.
Sharing Table - LCGS is part of the coalition of churches that serves lunch at the Sharing Table held at Prince of Peace church in Edgewood. Four times a year, we make and serve lunch, set up, and clean up for the Sharing Table. Youth servers are welcomed and encouraged.
Food Collection - Collections are ongoing to help stock the shelves of the Little Free Pantry located in our front parking lot, at the Sharing Table, and other initiatives. Donation bins are located in the coat room.
Christmas Basket Project: - Individuals in our congregation sponsor gifts from our "gift tree" to support individuals and families from Mason Dixon Community Services Inc. and the ARC. Baskets containing all the fixings for a Holiday meal are delivered along with the gifts.
LWR (Lutheran World Relief) - We participate in several initiatives each year in support of Luther World Relief. School kits, Fabric Kits and World Hunger, to name a few. The Peace by Piece quilters construct and send quilts each year. The quilters meet weekly in the Celebration Hall on Wednesdays mornings.
