Quilting

Lutheran World Relief

Food Pantry

Members of the congregation have been knitting or crocheting prayer shawls for distribution at area hospitals.. With our proximity to the University of Wisconsin Orthopedic Hospital they have become a recipient of many of these


If you're interested in participating in this ministry we have patterns available. Completed shawls can be left with Pastor Rob for distribution.

During Lent, our parishioners donated over 1500 pounds of food to help the River Food Pantry!
