The Serving Ministry coordinates and provides a variety of opportunities to serve others in Christ's name. 

 Serving Opportunities are endless, but currently include:


Soles-4-Souls Shoe Drive

September 23 through October 28

Help keep shoes out of landfills and give them to people who need them the most. Shoes help keep people healthy by preventing disease and allow others to attend school or go to work. Some shoes are given to individuals to start and sustain a small business lifting their family out of poverty. All types of new or gently-worn shoes accepted - men, women or children - athletic, dress, heels, sandals, cleats, dance, boots or flip-flops.

Drop off in Gathering Space collection area between

September 23 and October 28, 2018

Other ways to contribute/help: 1.) cash/check to help with delivery costs or purchase shoes; OR 2.) travel with Soles4Souls to distribute shoes (see if you are interested.)

Contact Beth Marcinko or Shirley Fisher with any questions.

 Give Shoes Give Love



The Confirmation class will again be collecting gift-filled shoe boxes  to send to children in need all over the world. We will have shoe boxes available in the gathering space while supplies last (you can use your own too just stop by to get the return label w/the directions). We are using the envelopes from last year so please disregard the dates on the return label.




Filled shoeboxes are due to church before the 2nd service on Sunday, November 18th.  


If you have any questions please see a confirmand or Cathy Stoneman

**Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry (LMM)

         Our mission is to promote shalom (peace, well-being) and justice (right relationships) through a Christian ministry of service and advocacy with those who are oppressed, forgotten and hurting.

        LMM was established in response to the urban unrest of the 1960's, specifically the upheaval in Hough. Today, LMM serves and advocates with people currently and previously involved in the criminal justice system, youth at-risk, people with disabilities, people dealing with long term care needs and people who are homeless.

LWR Lutheran World Relief    

        Mission: Affirming God’s love for all people, we work with Lutherans and partners around the world to end poverty, injustice and human suffering. 

        World War II left an estimated one-fifth of the world’s Lutherans homeless. Initially prompted by sending aid to their German and Scandinavian kin, American Lutherans soon realized that aid could be shared fairly only on the basis of need. In the late 1940s, the focus was Palestinians forced from their homes by the creation of the state of Israel, the 1950s focused on Asia, and the 1970s & ’80s Africa.

**Chaplain Partnership (formerly Lutheran Chaplaincy)

           Chaplain Partnership employs professionally trained chaplains who serve in institutions that contract with us for spiritual care services. Our partner institutions are located throughout the northern half of Ohio and include hospitals, long-term care facilities, and a facility for the developmentally disabled.  We also offer our expertise as a search service for healthcare institutions seeking a chaplain.
