Service & Outreach


The Service & Outreach ministry encompasses everything from collecting supplies for students in need to our homeless shelter outreach programs. Also, projects such as our community dinner – Breaking Bread at Bethel, as well as campaigns under the ELCA, such as supporting needs at the Lutheran Social Services are all a part of this ministry. The Service & Outreach coordinator is Gail Morgan.
