MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES

 
Be a Missionary Sponsor
 
Weekly sponsors are needed to support our ELCA missionary program. Our new missionaries are Curtis & Katie Kline serving in Colombia. Curtis accompanies the ELCA of Colombia in promoting and protecting human rights and building peace. Katie will serve in youth ministry, women’s ministry and HIV/AIDS work. Your support makes a difference. The cost is $35 each week. A calendar is located in the narthex to sign up. Please prayerfully consider this ministry opportunity. 
 
Be a Member of the Prayer Chain
 

The Prayer Chain Ministry at Grace Lutheran performs a very essential function.  Prayer Chain volunteers individually offer up daily prayers for a list of people who are going through health or personal struggles.  Friends and/or relatives either call or email the church office or a Prayer Chain member asking for prayers which are forwarded to each member.  Confidentiality is a must when requested. The Prayer Chain meets quarterly to touch base and update information.  New volunteer members are always welcome. To volunteer please email the Prayer Chain Chairperson, Lois Gordie.
