Serving the World

Please call the church office if you would like to help out in any of our global outreach ministries. It takes many hands to do God's work!

   

Peace
Vigil
the 24th
of each
month







 

A vigil candle stays lit throughout the day on the 24th of each month. A place for prayer and meditation is offered for those that would like to stop by to pray.  You are invited to bring your own thoughts and prayers. All faiths and denominations are invited to share in the vigil.  For more information visit: The Lutheran World Federation-Department for World Justice.
