Counting Teams

 

We are afforded the opportunity to worship and give thanks to God through giving.  It is important that we process the offerings in a manner that ensures integrity.

 

The Counting Teams ensure that offerings are collected, counted, and that deposits are made. 

 

Property Maintenance

Committee assists with the maintenance of church and school  property.  Much of the maintenance is performed through volunteer help. 

 

Please contact the church or school office if you have skills to help with our repairs and upkeep.

 

TLC2

TLC  (Squared) means  Tender Loving Care Through the Love of Christ

 

The TLC2  Committee exists so that we might live our faith and show our love with the results that our congregation is strengthened,  the lost are reached and God is glorified.

 

Our purpose is to provide confidential help to members of the congregation with basic needs such as: utilities, medical assistance, medication, rent payments, insurance, emergency transportation, gasoline, and food.

 

This help is made possible through congregational donations to the Benevolent Fund and is not a budget item.   If you are interested in reading about our goals and objectives there are copies of a more detailed report available on a table in the Narthex.

 

We also try to promote awareness of  Wellness Programs such as  new procedures available at Blessing Heart & Vascular Center and the CPR Program.  We also sponsor an Annual Blood Drive.

 

Donations to the Benevolent Fund are always welcome.

 

For more information or assistance, contact Pastor Fieberkorn in the church office.
