Operation Christmas Child

Although the Operation Christmas Child program through Samaritan’s Purse is still many months away, I would like to slowly start collecting items for that outreach. For the month of April, I would like to collect clothing and accessories. If you have any items that you would like to donate, just bring them in to the church office. Each month I will put out a request for a different item. I hope to have a packing party right before this year’s collection week. Thank you for your support! If you have any questions, contact Mel Bailey. My email is melbailey08@yahoo.com or leave a message with the church office and I will get back to you.

Willing Hearts and Working Hands

This ministry organizes us to help our members and neighbors in the Nekoosa area. We want to help with routine maintenance needs, as well as assisting people to get to their Doctors appointments and the like. If you need this kind of assistance in your life, or would like to help, please contact Pastor Dennis.

The community garden is located on the corner of Market St. and Cedar St.. Volunteers are always welcome.

Project Connect

When you enter through the east doors of the church, you should notice the booklet stand just before the men’s restroom. This is Project Connect. It is an outreach resource with topical booklets from Lutheran Hour Ministries. Feel free to take them to read yourself or share with friends, relatives, or co-workers. There will be 23 different topics to choose from.

These booklets are free of charge and you are not obligated to donate!! We want the booklets to be used. That being said, however, if you feel this ministry is beneficial, donations will be accepted to that they booklets may be restocked. Just use the Project Connect envelope with your offering envelope number on it and place it in the offering plate on Sunday or leave it with the secretary in the church office. You may also use a Designated Gift envelope marked for Project Connect. The project was initially funded through the Thrivent Action Program.
