Education Ministry

We’re excited about helping people grow in faith so we have opportunities for all ages. During the school year we have Sunday School for elementary age children.  We have Tuesday Text Study at our Ministry Center from 9:30 – 11:30 each week. During this time we dig deeply into the texts for the coming Sunday, opening our understanding to God’s word and seeking ways to apply it to our lives today.  Soul Food is  Christian Youth Group that meets on Wednesdays at 3:30pm – 5:30pm, for grades 7-12.  “The Pack” is for elementary age children and meets on Thursdays at 3:30pm – 5:30pm. Men’s Group and Women’s Group meet at 7pm on the 4th Tuesdays of the month, at the Shalom Ministry Center. Come join in the fellowship and grow in God’s word with us.

 

Mission Development Team

Shalom Community Lutheran Church is a tithing congregation, designating a minimum of 11% of our tithes and offerings to mission.  Early each year we invite all members to join in prayerful consideration of which ministries we should commit to supporting. We are thankful and grateful to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom locally around the world. We actively support missionaries with our money and prayers, currently supporting Compelled Ministries’ medical, education and Spiritual work in India, and Minnewaska Area YFC.

Locally we serve up to 20 families in our community through our S.O.N. (“Serving Our Neighbor”) program by, once a month, providing them with food for their family.  We distribute a shopping list through Pope County Families In Need, allowing the families this organization has identified to select the items they need. Members of the congregation shop for the food, pack it up for distribution and deliver the boxes to families.

 

Prayer Ministry

Prayer is central to our congregation and an essential foundation for our ministry.  All meetings of the congregation, the Deacons or committees begin with prayer to seek God’s guidance and blessing (Philippians 4:6-7). We encourage our members to pray for our ministry, each other, our government leaders and for the world. A group meets at the Ministry Center Thursday mornings to learn about intercessory prayer and then pray through the needs known to the congregation.
