Our Serving Groups
Serving together makes a difference in our community but also is one way our faith becomes real. As we work, we get to know each other, too.
St. Andrew Food Distribution
Geneva Lutheran serves at St. Andrew Lutheran Church in West Chicago supporting and assisting with weekly emergency food distributions. Volunteers from GLC gather each Friday afternoon at St. Andrew to unload, unpack, and sort non-perishables, assemble produce bags and break down dozens of boxes as preparation for the next day’s distribution. GLC will also occasionally supplement these distribution with donations of diapers, baby wipes and other personal hygiene items. GLC is grateful to partner with St. Andrew and other area churches and organizations to help sustain this timely and essential community outreach. Contact Julie Slifka for more information.
Nourish & Serve
Cook, bake, and serve! This ministry provides meals for those facing medical or other life challenges. In addition, GLC also hosts funeral luncheons that require salads, desserts, and helpers to serve in the kitchen. Would you like to be a part of this ministry? Please contact Julie Slifka for more information.
Prayer Shawls are lovingly knit or crocheted, blessed, and wrapped around the shoulders of someone who needs comfort. Baby blankets and pocket prayer squares are also knit or crocheted for anyone in the congregation or to give to someone they know. Whether you are experienced with knitting or crocheting or would really like to learn, all are welcome. Contact Martha Sobie for more information.
GLC Mother’s Garden
Plant, weed, and water our Mother’s Garden and other planting beds in and around the church. A spring, summer, and fall serving opportunity. Contact Sandi Bowgren for more information.
