Getting involved at Saint Michael
Where are your gifts and interests best suited?
There are a variety of opportunities in which members and friends of Saint Michael can be involved through ministries. The following listing is not intended to be comprehensive, but highlights the range of possibilities for ministry and service. Think about where your gifts and interests are best suited.
Join us on Mondays at 7 p.m. next door at Sunridge Village to play Bridge. No experience necessary – experienced players are welcome also.
Our Older, Wiser Lutherans (55+) meet the 2nd Monday of each month from September – May.
Most often we meet at Saint Michael for a light lunch and a program. Other times we’ll go to see an exhibit, etc. Whatever we do, it’s always a fun time and a great opportunity to get to know one another better. We hope you’ll join us.
Mission Endowment Fund
Fine Food and Fellowship
Approximately twice a year, members of Saint Michael are invited to sign up for Fine Food and Fellowship. Participants (singles and couples) are then organized into groups of approximately eight people which meet once a month at a restaurant of their choice. A great way to meet people.
Singles Sunday Brunch
Are you single, and would you like to join others for a Sunday Lunch? A group of us who are single, divorced or widowed meet the 2nd Sunday of the month for lunch and fellowship after the second service. Everyone is welcome. Come when you are able; the size of the group ranges from 3 or 4 to 12. Check the bulletin announcement page for the place. Hope to see you then.
As a way to create a welcoming atmosphere between worship services on Sunday mornings, members of Saint Michael provided snacks for our Fellowship Time.
We ask for volunteers to sponsor Sunday’s treats ($50 for a full sponsorship/$25 for a partial). A chart is posted on the bulletin board by the Flower Chart. Please complete the slip provided with date, name, phone number and money and leave it in the church office. An established group or team may also wish to sponsor a Sunday. The sponsors will be recognized each week in the church bulletin and with a sign on the treats table. If there is no sponsorship, a basket for free will be on the table. Please consider helping.
By doing any of the above, you are extending hospitality taught by our Lord. Our Fellowship Time is a wonderful opportunity to meet new people or to renew long-time friendships.
Men’s Golf League
There is a very active men’s golf league that meets from late spring through August. They play Thursday evening at Stone Creek Golf Course.
Contact Kyle Eichhorn or the church office for more information.
Boutique & Bake Sale
Held the 1st Saturday of December each year from 9 a.m.—3 p.m.
Saint Michael members donate baked goods for us to sell. We also rent tables to outside venders and usually have a few items to raffle – donated raffle items would be appreciated. The money that we raise at the boutique goes to support:
- various outside agencies, such as the YWCA for domestic violence, Lutheran Service Corps, Lydia House, the Nebraska & National Women of the ELCA Organizations etc.
- Saint Michael events such as the High School Youth Mission Trips
- we purchased the refrigerator and donated money toward furnishings for the Gathering Place and our newest addition
- other WELCA events, such as Retreats, Mother/Daughter/Sister/Friend Brunch, etc.
If you can help “work” the boutique, we would appreciate it. It’s always a fun day!
