Service Opportunities

Summer Carnival

It is that time again to begin our preparation for the carnival. Yes, we have decided to do this again this year and so I want to begin by asking for prayer and also begin
by purchasing items for prizes. Please pray:
Prayer Needs:

  • Ask the Lord to show you what you can do
  • Boldness to step out of our comfort zones
  • Financial support to pay for needed supplies
  • People to serve as leaders for areas of needs (ie. Food, setting up, tearing down, games, )
  • Ideas, ideas, ideas
  • Theme for Vacation Bible School
  • Perfect weather day for the carnival
  • Unity of heart, hands, and encouragement

Remember we are called to be fishers of men, not keepers of aquariums. We are spreading the gospel of Jesus and showing our community that we love them and care for them.

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 February, I would like to collect shoeboxes. If you have any 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. Thank you for your support! If you have any questions, contact Mel Bailey. My email is 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.
