The Social Ministry Team has been hard at work throughout the year. It is clear to everyone that every person on the team has a heart for service! Some of the projects currently underway or upcoming are the collections for the Grace Memorial for Mission, collection of non-perishable food items for Gethsemane Lutheran’s Food Pantry in Chalmette, collection of diapers and personal care items for the New Orleans Women’s and Children’s Shelter, environmental service at Lake Pontchartrain and Bayou St. John, and a new ministry at Bethlehem Lutheran—the Community Meal after service starting in March 2020.

If you, too, have a heart for service and would like to help out, please contact Eileen at
