“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
The Serving Others Ministry team of Emmanuel Lutheran Church is excited to announce the launch of a new community outreach site at www.servingotherscollier.org. The intent of the site is to promote important events and volunteer opportunities for non-profit agencies providing faithful service to our community and beyond. We encourage you to click on the button below to visit the site, to stay updated on these opportunities, and to share the site far and wide.
We pursue this objective primarily, but not exclusively in Collier County, with a focus on providing for those needing food, shelter, medical care, and life skills. The team also supports the ELCA World Hunger Appeal.
Our team works toward this “outreach by action” through community fund-raising activities and the solicitation of funds from the Emmanuel community. To maintain focus, a limited number of faith-based local agencies are carefully selected for support. The charitable organizations are monitored to assure that funds are put to good use.
Our team also looks for and assists in hands-on service activities in support of these local agencies.
