Service Group

The Service Group was busy on March  21 making small Easter Baskets for the senior citizens and food pantry at St. Mary’s Church is Mohegan Lake.  Thanks to YOUR generosity, we were able to make 122 baskets – the most ever!  Our next meeting is May 2 and we will be packing up the School Kits to be sent to Lutheran World Relief.  These kits will be distributed to third world countries for children who have no supplies but so desperately want to learn.  Thank you for your help with this!!

 Please join us and help with this important work!
