Board of Stewardship
God does not command us to live in poverty. We can cite many Biblical characters who were wealthy and yet pleased their Lord. God, after all, is the creator of all good things. We are foolish, however, to hoard our possessions or put our trust in wealth. Paul urges us to put our hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17), and he further reminds us that God makes us "rich in every way so that (we) can be generous on every occasion" (2 Corinthians 9:11) with the result that glory will be given to God.
Faith Women in Mission (WIM) Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML)
The purpose of the LWML/Faith WIM is to strengthen the spiritual life of its members, offer opportunity for Christian fellowship and to aid the church in its mission and outreach.
Meetings are on the second Tuesday of each month at 1:00 pm at the church. All ladies of the congregation are invited to be a part of this organization. The meetings begin with devotional prayer, followed with a business meeting and refreshments. Occasionally there is a special program or guest speaker.
"Serve the Lord with Gladness", Psalm 100:2
The death of a spouse, child, family member or friend is devastating. Christians are able to claim an eternal perspective and can rejoice that the person they lost is now in the presence of his or her Creator. Even so, as humans, we must grieve losses so deep and significant.
The GriefShare ministry is designed to help people recover from the deep hurt of loss. GriefShare includes three key elements to guide the healing process. Each week, videos feature personal stories of people like you who are grieving the death of a loved one. In addition, GriefShare creates a support group for all who participate. These along with the weekly workbook exercises can makes real difference in your recovery. GriefShare, with its biblical Christ-centered perspective, is an effective tool to help people find or deepen faith in Christ as they examine soul-level questions about death, dying, their own mortality and eternal life. GriefShare points grieving people to Christ as the source of their healing.
Are you or someone you know grieving? Consider GriefShare as one of God's good means of comforting those who grieve. GriefShare meets for 13 weekly sessions. For more information, please contact the church office at 618-466-3833, ext. 200.
