Abiding Word Lutheran Church is actively involved in the community and ministry. We invite you to read about our ministries and take part in the the ministries that we offer the lost and the found.
Communion for Shut-ins
Abiding Word Lutheran has members of all ages that are unable to attend church for multiple reason. We have implemented a group of individuals to bring the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ to these individuals so they can enjoy the promise given them through these elements.
In 2017 the Journey Together Women’s Bible Study Group decided we wanted a service project where we could reach out to the community. Basket Brigade was discussed and started. Once we presented to the Abiding Word Lutheran Church Congregation, the Congregation decided they wanted to give to Seniors.
Basket Brigade donates baskets of food to homebound Seniors in the month of November before Thanksgiving. A note is put in the basket that reads “This is a gift from someone who cares about you. Wishing you a Blessed Thanksgiving.”
The notion behind the Basket Brigade is that one small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of so many people. Our goal each year has grown so we can reach more Seniors. In our first year our goal was 20 baskets, we distributed 42 baskets. Last year we distributed 65 baskets. This year’s goal is 70 baskets.
We are most appreciative of the past support we have received and look forward to sharing future news with you.
