Nurture

This ministry covers many aspects of spreading Christ's love. It includes our Elders, Intercessory Prayer chain, Adult Bible study leaders, Youth Group leaders, Librarian, Stewardship and Education. For more information on any of these, please contact Pastor David Bilgreen, or any of our Elders. 

Nuture-Education: We believe that our children's knowledge of Christ, and His love, first comes from home. We offer to stand beside you and help you reaffirm what your children are already learning through our Sunday School classes and Vacation Bible School (in the summer), and confirmation materials. Any of the Sunday School Leaders will be able to answer questions you may have. Chairperson: Amy Schaeffer; Vice Chairperson: (Open); Superintendent: Terrie Riley

Sunday School classes meet every other week during the school year and start at 10:30 AM. They are divided into groups from Pre-School - 6th grade.  After 6th grade, tweens and teens may join our Jr or Sr Youth Groups. They are currently meeting on Monday evenings. Please contact the church office for more information.

Stewardship

The LCMS defines Christian Stewardship as the free and joyous activity of  God's family-the church-in managing life's resources for God's purposes. You are a child of God and member of God’s family! We want to help you live lives dedicated to using the gifts God has given you for His purposes and to His glory. Chairperson: Leann King;  Vice Chairperson: Open

Worship

All of the members in the Ministry of Worship contribute to our church services. Many you will notice, but some of them do much behind the scenes that you never see. These areas of service include: The Worship Team, Chimes and Harmony Choir, Lay readers, Sound Board, Ushers, Worship Committee, Altar Guild, Eucharist Bread and Banner makers, and Nursery.  If interested in serving in these areas please contact our Pastor, or an Elder. 

Social Ministry

Christ's love and the Gospel is meant for everyone. This is how we share that love with our church family and surrounding community. This includes our: Dollar Help, Compassion, Heaven's Supply Pantry, Family Life, Financial counseling, and Transportation ministries.  Chairperson: Open; Vice Chairperson: Nita Eggers

The physical building and grounds God has blessed our congregation with, are cared for by the Trustees. This includes everything from cutting the grass outside to building repairs and our kitchen staff.  Vice Chairman: Ron Cody; Vice Chairman: Cindy Schuler

Evangelism

We are called as Christians to spread the gospel. This includes reaching out to our members and community using a variety of resources: public preaching, personal witnessing, managing our website and Facebook pages, plus using other media and events to share the love of Jesus.
