Family Ministry Events

Family Service Night

Wednesday, Oct. 18; 5:45-7:45 p.m. in Great Hall

Bring the whole family for an evening of service on Wednesday, Oct. 18. Our projects will be care packages for our college freshman and sophomores, decoupaged picture frames for our CRC families moving into secure housing, and ornaments for post-Hurricane Irma volunteers supporting the community of Gateway Trinity Lutheran Church in Fort Meyers, Florida. Families of DOCK children, Confirmation and high school youth are invited to join us.

Supplies needed for Family Service Night

To help support this service project we are encouraging families to bring in materials for the college gift packages. Items we need include items from the toys, holiday decorations, supplies, bags of candy or tide pods. Aside from the tide pods and candy bags all items should be purchased at the dollar store or in the dollar section at a store such as Target or Walmart. If you can not purchase these items but would still like to help with donations we will gladly take giftcards to Dollar Tree or Target. All donations will need to be dropped off by Monday Oct. 16.
