Our Fellowship Ministry is one of building and maintaining relationships; of making sure that others are welcomed and loved at our table. Our ministry is carried out through acts of compassion like phone calls, deliveries, food, handmade crafts, and personal visits.
We feel it's important for others to feel loved and appreciated on their birthdays! If you would like to receive a card on your birthday, please call the office at (530) 895-3754 and let us know when it is. Conversely, let us know if you're somebody who wants to make out and send cards!
Around the time the pandemic really started to affect worship, we realized how important human interaction was. Masked and social-distanced, we started delivering CDs of the sermon to folks who, because of the dangers of COVID, could not attend church. Eventually we started delivering other things like flowers, cards, snacks, even groceries! This act of ministry is one of our strongest and most crucial now. If you're interested in being one of our couriers - going door to door and dropping off CDs or treats - please sign up by calling the office.
We're Lutherans, and that means two things: potlucks, and potlucks. Potlucks specifically have been put on hold due to the pandemic, but rest assured, we are very serious about good food and fellowship! Coffee hour takes place directly after worship each Sunday, and you're welcome to stick around, caffeinate, and converse. Meal Trains are created when one of our members are ill and need assistance with dinners; members of Faith order out or home-cook meals for the duration of the Meal Train.
Our Women's Ministry is a friendly and creative ministry. The Mary & Martha Bible Study Group and Quilters both come from the Women's Ministry, the latter of which is responsible for making hand-crafted masks throughout the pandemic, and creating stunning quilts. Each year the Women's Ministry hosts boutiques, and the money accrued funds scholarships for students and buys paratransit tickets to help folks get to church. The Men's Ministry is one that delights in fellowship and good food, and meets on Friday mornings for breakfast.
