Lutheran Services of Georgia
Each year at Christmas we get a list of children from Lutheran Services of Georgia and we provide Christmas gifts. In 2018 we gave 2 gifts each to 30 children.
Rockdale Emergency Relief
We provide food collected from the congregation on an ongoing basis.
Servants of the Lord/Meals on Wheels
This ministry provides meals to over 200 families in the Rockdale and Newton area. Several area churches contribute funding and volunteers. In 2018 we served on the first 2 Saturdays of each month, except in July when the program takes a break. Our route consists of 6 homes.
Back Pack Buddies
This program supplies food to chronically hungry children for their weekend meals. The children are screened by the school counselor and then permission slips are signed and the children pick up the food when they leave school on Friday. We served 10 elementary children at both Live Oak and South Salem Schools.
We had an Easter Egg Hunt for 14 girls in 2018. We hid over 200 eggs and had candy and prizes in each egg.
In July we joined with other members of the congregation in providing end of the summer lunches for children of the Rockdale County Schools. We packed 200 lunches.
