Special fellowship events are scheduled on a month-to-month basis, such as game nights, Lent soup suppers, spring brunch, progressive dinner, rally day, chili cook off, Thanksgiving dinner, pancake breakfast, etc.
The first Sunday of each month is Bread of Life Sunday. Food is brought in and distributed to the Salvation Army or to the Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service.
On Souperbowl of Caring Sunday we bring cans of soup and cash is collected to be given to the Salvation Army in St. Charles.
Contributions are given to Our Church’s Wider Mission, One Great Hour of Sharing, Strengthen the Church, Neighbors in Need and the Christmas Fund (Veterans of the Cross). Special collections are held to be given to countries experiencing calamities, such as the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, and the tsumamis in Japa and the Phillipines -- and to American disaster areas, such as the tornado damage in Joplin, Missouri.
Sunday School students and friends held a bake sale and the proceeds were used to donate an Easter basket of fruit and candy to the local Youth In Need. They also made Easter bags for the local Crisis Nursery Center. Each year they and the congregation provide Christmas gifts for the children at Every Child's Hope.
The Sew-N-Sews Quilting Group donates a charity quilt every year. This year they are donating one to the Emmaus Home in Marthasville for their annual quilt auction. They also donate some of the money they make from quilting to several area charities.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry group crochets or knits prayer shawls to be given to members going through a difficult time, hospitalization, or a special event, such as the birth of a baby. Shawls are also given to the Emmaus Home in St. Charles.
