Orphan Grain Train - Ukraine and Haiti Donations

The Orphan Grain Train is desperately in need of children's clothes for the Ukrainian refugees – any sizes and warmer fall and winter clothes. They are also looking for men's winter clothes and boots to provide for the Ukrainian soldiers – heavy shirts and pants as well as long underwear and warm socks. Blankets and quilts are also always needed. Monetary donations are always appreciated. Cash or check made to "Orphan Grain Train" can be put in an envelope marked 'OGT' and placed in the offering plate.

In addition, St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Wausau has a continuing project to make dresses from pillowcases for the girls in Haiti. Any size pillowcases can be donated for this effort.

Joan Hojan will be delivering all donated articles to Wausau on September 26th. Any items can be brought to church the two Sundays before (Sept 18 & Sept 25) or you may text or call Joan for an alternate drop-off day at (920)450-4630.

Thank you for your donations and continued prayers for those in need.
Food for the flock

Food for the Flock - Volunteers Needed

A small gesture of Christian love can go a long way in telling a person or family that God loves and cares for them. It can also open doors for those who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. To that end, Hope’s Outreach committee has started the new Food for the Flock ministry to provide a meal to a member of Hope or the community during a difficult time. The Outreach Committee is looking for volunteers who are willing to cook and deliver a meal on a rotational basis. There is a sign-up list on the bulletin board in the Narthex, or you may contact Melody Krugler at (832)731-3964 or via email at

Greeter Ministry Volunteers

We are looking for individuals/couples/ families who would willing to welcome worshipers as they enter our church building, answer any questions and make them feel welcome.  We ask that you be at your post by 9:05 AM.  We will provide some helps for you.  You will be scheduled at your convenience.  If interested, please talk with Melody Krugler or Pastor.  Thank you!
Recipe book

Recipe Books

The last of the Women of Hope recipe books are available for purchase on the table in the hallway. Still $25.00 each. An envelope with your payment may be left on the desk in the office. Thank you.

DVD Lending Library

Over the past several years, the congregation has purchased or received as gifts a variety of excellent Christian movies for children and adults.  We are making these DVD's available for our members to check out and use at home.  In an effort to keep track of these dvds/videos, we ask that when you select an item to borrow, you please fill out the card attached to it and place the card in the designated box on the library shelf.  We encourage you to keep them for only one week and then return them to the  Library “Return Basket.”  This system will hopefully help us to be good stewards in using these resources and being accountable for their whereabouts.  ENJOY!
