Evangelism, Worship, and Mission

Front Row are Worship Committee members: Audrey Mayer (chairperson) & Carolyn Weaver with Virginia Soel, council representative. Back row is Pastor Lisa Hoelscher; Evangelism chairperson, Sandy Schmidtzinsky; Pastor Ron Windecker and Doris Ernst, former chairperson of Evangelism.

The Evangelism and Worship Committees meet in the Church Library on the first Tuesday of the month at 5 PM. 

They discuss how our Congregation can better proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ in the world, and encourage and build up one another as members of the body of Christ. They also support and lead the congregation in it’s vision to live as Christ’s welcoming people. They take note of members who are missing from worship and contact them when appropriate to determine if there are spiritual or personal needs. They oversee the membership and pictorial directories and keep up with our youth who are going off to college. They take note of visitors, sending them a welcome note, and follow-up with a visit. They also oversee the publishing of brochures and packets of information to be made available to visitors. 

The Worship Committee endeavors to provide meaningful worship on Sunday mornings as well as special services during Advent and Lent. They train the ushers, decorate the church for special events, and invite the community to attend our worship services.

The Mission Committee brings awareness of local and global needs to the congregation.  Each month a special concern is advocated by the committee to encourage financial support by members. Such needs include: Water to Thrive, Lutheran World Relief, the Good Samaritan Center, the Needs Council and Meals on Wheels.
