Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church offers a number of ways for congregants and guests to get involved. When we find ways to participate in the life of the church we truly begin to Build Community Where God Is At The Center!
Here are a few ways you help:
Community Meal: On the fourth Saturday of every month Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church hosts a free community meal for our congregants and NE neighbors. We always welcome help with prep work, cooking, serving the meal, and clean up. You can also make a donation to help cover the costs of the meal. If you would like to help with the community meal, we’d love to have you. Simply show up ready to serve … or contact email@example.com for more details. Note that our next meal, on Saturday, May 27, will be held at Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church, 1701 St. Anthony Parkway in NE Mpls., due to the construction project going on at GA Church during May. Volunteer preparations will begin at 4 p.m. that day and the meal will be served at 6 p.m. as usual.
Help with Sunday Morning Worship: Our congregants play a huge role in our Sunday Morning worship, and we are always looking for more people who would like to help. If you would like to help during worship consider volunteering as a Lector, Assisting Minister, or Usher. We also have a number of amazing choirs for those who would like to share their musical talents. If you’d like to help with Worship please contact Phil Holzman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in Hospitality on Sunday morning maybe you’d like to host our Fellowship Hour after worship, or serve as one of our Greeters before worship. We also have volunteers who provide rides to congregants who can not drive. If you’d like to help with Sunday Morning hospitality please contact email@example.com
Faith Formation: Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church offers a number of Faith Formation opportunities to its congregants, and we always welcome individuals who would like to help with these ministries. Congregants are invited to serve as Sunday School Teachers, Confirmation Mentors & Chaperones, Bible & Brews hosts, and Adult Study leaders. If you would like to help with our Faith Formation Ministry, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
