OPERATION INASMUCH

“Inasmuch as you did it for the least of these, you did it for me.”  Matthew 25:40.

Saturday, April 20th was definitely a day that members of LCOS as well as members of the Home School football league and their parents served our community and our neighbors in need.

The day started out with approximately 50 volunteers eating breakfast served and donated by 14 members of our congregation along with a blessing by Pastor Maria and a meaningful devotion given by Pastor Sean.

 

The following will give you an idea of our contributions to others that day:

  • Praying: At least 60 people were praying for the projects and for those participating.
  • Children’s activity: 6 people made 35 felt flower magnets which were placed in a plastic bag along with an inspirational message to be distributed to Lutheran Hospice clients.
  • God’s Pantry building: 2 worked a total of 12 hours installing a skirt on the base of the building; unfortunately, they were unable to complete this project.
  • God’s Pantry Garden: Approximately 15 worked to weed and prepare the soil for planting.

A fence was also installed around the garden.  The food grown will be donated to clients of our God’s Pantry.

  • God’s Pantry Headquarters:  In 3 hours 8 members repackaged bulk small egg noodles into approximately 1000 quart sized Ziploc bags and another 15 members packed approximately 500 boxes of non-perishable food.
  • Safe Harbor Shelter Resale Shop:  5 members donated approximately 12 hours of time to the Resale Shop.  They assisted customers and sorted through numerous racks of cloths to assure the right sizes were hung together and kept the racks looking neat.
  • Salvation Army: 14 volunteers served breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Jubilate Hand bell concert at Rose Cress:  14 bell ringers and 5 members volunteered their time for this concert.
  • Teacher’s Kits for Lake Forest Elementary School: Approximately $200 of school supplies were donated by the congregation.  9 volunteers assembled the kits and 3 volunteers delivered them to the Lake Forest teachers and staff at their staff meeting on Wednesday, April 24th.  The teachers and staff appreciated receiving the kits.
  • McCall Hospice House:  Over 900 items were donated for the Comfort Bags plus 50 skeins of yarn and miscellaneous ribbon, buttons, and fabric were donated for their craft projects.
    • Book Marks and decorated hearts: 12 of the younger Sunday School students made these to include in the Comfort Bags

Some people volunteered for more than one of these projects.  Approximately 115 members plus 15 Home School football league members and their parents participated in the Operation Inasmuch projects listed above.  We had a great time working together, getting to better know each other, and most of all helping those in need.

 

Whether you prayed, donated money, food, school supplies, Comfort Bag or craft supplies, or was one of the project workers on the 20th, you contributed to making Operation Inasmuch an outstanding project.  Thank you to everyone who participated in Operation Inasmuch.

2010 SC LCY Hand in Hand Event in Greenville SC. LCY Youth from all over the state joined together for a weekend of mission and ministry as we worked with many organizations across Greenville.




2015 Hand in Hand was held Nov 20 - 22 and again served the Greenville community. LCOS youth and adults joined with LCY youth and adults from throughout the state to provide a day of service to multiple organizations Annie's House (a sustainable and renewable home model in the Nicholtown community), God's Pantry (250 boxes packed in less than 3 hours), two SOS thrift shops, Roper Mountain Lights setup, and Providence Care (an afternoon with elder residents) 

We participated in the service Sunday morning at TRIUNE Mercy Center which is a key ministry for the homeless and less fortunate in Greenville.    




Learning Board

Here is our After School Program which provides homework, fellowship, and day school late stay opportunities for the community. We currently have 40 children registered for this program and each day the fellowship hall and office wing are full of their voices.

We are God's people, his Church. God has revealed his love for us through his Son, Jesus Christ, our Saviour.  In response to God's love and in obedience to his command, we are commissioned to extend his kingdom to all people.  By the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Church's mission is carried out through these areas of ministry: FELLOWSHIP, LEARNING, SERVICE, SUPPORT, WITNESS, AND WORSHIP.

 

In order to carry out these ministries we shall strive:

            - to provide opportunities for fellowship and enrichment in order that the Baptized people

of God may grow in faith and serve Christ and his people through this community of believers;

 

            - to provide opportunities for learning his Word and sharing his Gospel so that faith may

be strengthened and nurtured;

 

            - to serve the needs of all people by actions of love through local programs, those of the

Synod, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and worldwide ministries;

 

            - to provide opportunities for supporting all ministries of the church  and encouraging the involvement of all members in the giving of their individual time, talents, and resources;

 

            - to encourage and accept opportunities to witness to the Good News in our lives and help

others experience God's love and to trust in Him;

 

            - and to provide opportunities for glorifying God through worship and receiving the means

of his grace which are the Word and sacraments.
