The Congregational Care board position acts to coordinate Helping Hands and funeral/memorial service receptions.  Congregational Care also offers support and assistance to staff for small group development.  Another group affiliated with this board position is Glory Stampers
King of Glory Helping Hands- This ministry provides meals to members during times of special needs, such as arrival of a new baby, death of an immediate family member, after surgery, or an extended illness. Funeral/Memorial Service Reception Coordinators- King of Glory seeks to provide a meal and place for fellowship following a funeral.  Thank you to all who have been involved in this deeply appreciated ministry.   The coordinators for 2018:  Doni Topel, Lorrie Maxwell, & Cheryl Jones.
Glory Stampers- Brenda Ambuehl and Gretchen Lee co-chair the Glory Stampers, the monthly card ministry group.  This committee sends cards to congregational members for many different reasons.  Cards are sent for sympathy, new members, confirmation, graduation, illness, and college students on different holidays, baptism, special anniversaries, new baby and marriage.  During 2016, 314 cards have been sent to King of Glory members.  Glory Stampers have also provided St. John’s Lutheran Ministries with 200 cards to use, as they need.  Thank you to Brenda and Gretchen who have been involved with this ministry since its inception in 2001.
Many thanks to all who serve our congregation!
