7. Serving Opportunities

Here are some opportunities for you to BE THE CHURCH, connect to the community and show the love of Christ. 

  • Hurricanes Laura and Sally have caused extensive destruction in the Louisiana and Alabama area in the past few weeks.  As a congregation we invite you to respond by supporting the Louisiana community by considering one of the following:
  1. Gift Cards to Lowes, Shell Gas or Walmart to be used in the Lake Charles area by relief efforts of Shepherd’s Heart to purchase supplies and gas.  (Only these three stores or a Visa gift card are needed)
  2. Chainsaw, Bobcat and Skidsteer operators are needed!  Shepherd’s Heart led by Pastor Ed Brashier is looking for people to help clear trees and brush.  They have a safe place for up to 24 people to stay including a hot meal.  The work is hot and long but rewarding to help the community get back on their feet.  They will be working in the Lake Charles area through the next few months. 
  3. Give through LCMS World Relief and Human Care by clicking HERE.
  4. We will be watching for more opportunities.  Contact Mary Stafford- Nunez to learn more!

  • Bethesda is doing all we can to keep people we support connected to their faith and the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, but staying home 24/7 is difficult for anyone. Our DSPs and frontline staff are doing an incredible job of providing those we support with love, empathy and encouragement to get them through this time—you can too, by sending an e-Card to a Bethesda home!  Simply follow this link, choose an image, write your message and click submit. Just a few moments of your time would bring so much joy during this challenging time.

  •  Cornerstone of Grace-a new mission startup in Watertown needs your help! (introduced to us through LINC, one of our local missions) This is a great service project for an individual or a Home Group. Cornerstone is  a faith-based organization designed to serve women and children in crisis.  Their mission is to be a safe haven while offering the love, spiritual guidance and resources to build a solid foundation for growth and stability.  As they prepare to open their house to serve three women and 8 children, they are in need of help with indoor projects such as painting and outdoor landscaping.   There is alo a need to have a bathroom remodeled as well as other rooms remodeled and they would love to have some sponsors.  Cornerstone is also looking for ongoing service with the women and children in mentoring, photography, cooking, gardening, tutoring, crafts and housesitting. If you would like more information on this ministry and their needs, please contact Mary Stafford-Nunez at mstafford@goblc.org.

  • Mexico Mission Trip Relief Effort – As you may have heard in many news reports, Mexico has been hit hard with the COVID – 19 which is complicated more with little testing and challenged health care systems.  Our ongoing relationship with El Divino Salvador and Lutheran Border Concerns Ministry since 2005 remains strong despite cancelling our short -term trip for this year.  Last month, our missionaries pooled their personal funds to send over $3200 to El Divino for relief efforts including food, mission needs and lumber to build one house.  With last weeks huge success of the Flower Sale we were able to send an additional $2500 to Lutheran Border Concerns Ministry to use for relief efforts of supplies for their breakfast program and other needs of the community.  To learn more about the ministry www.lutheranborderconcernsministry.org.  You may want to check out the Angel-wings Program to support a child with education and food.  Facebook:  Angel Wings – Lutheran Border Concerns Ministry.  Facebook, Divino Salvador in Tijuana, Mexico.
     
  • Guatemala Mission Trip Relief Effort – Guatemala has also been hit hard with the COVID – 19.  Since our first FAMILY short-term mission trip needed to be cancelled, the participants have sent almost $800 in relief effort to Child Beyond.  Learn more about their ministry at www.childbeyond.org.  They continue to ministry to children and families just outside of Guatemala City who are abused, abandoned, frightened, hungry and needing a place to call home! 

     
  • Safe Families, one of our mission partners, is looking for VIRTUAL Family Friends for families struggling during these difficult times.  Fill out an application, learn more and attend a training through this link. Now is the time to serve by walking alongside a family to coach and support them even when we physically need to stay distant.  Most families are located in the hot spots of Milwaukee and Waukesha.  They also are in need of toilet paper and antibacterial soap as they put together care packages to make stay at home easier on families with no transportation or childcare to obtain these essentials.  Drop any donations inside main church doors and we will share them with Safe Families. The church is open Monday-Friday from 8:30am-1:30pm.
