  • Altar supplies and maintenance

  • Organize congregational social activities

  • Periodic Church Boutique sales to fundraise for the ministry

  • Organize phone tree system to quickly notify members of immediate needs or events

  • Coordinate projects to benefit the WELS supported Central Africa Medical Mission

  • Promote membership in and provide support for the Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society for missionaries and mission congregations at home and abroad

  • Promote a weekly sewing / quilting group to benefit our members and sisters in Christ through the Comforter Ministry

  • Any other project that is deemed useful and beneficial that is not already addressed by another group within the congregation…
