“Whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant,” said
Jesus, the greatest of servants. How can you express Christ’s love through service?
There are several opportunities to participate on Sunday mornings and other times of worship, including: Altar Guild, Worship Assistant (Liturgist, Acolyte, Lector), Usher, Greeter, or hosting a Coffee/Tea Hour, and more.
Christ Church, Lutheran has a long history of providing quality music to enhance our worship. Would you like to join the choir, serve as a soloist, lend an instrument to our orchestra or as accompaniment, or join the San Francisco Recorder Society? Help is often needed to assist in setting up for special events and recitals that take place in our sanctuary throughout the year as well.
Our buildings and grounds always need attention, and they are aging every day! Perhaps you can lend a helping hand in gardening, cleaning, maintenance, and general organization.
Committees, Administration and Programs
Several committees and programs operate on a regular basis. Please consider one or more of the following: Church Council (members only), Finance Committee, Mutual Ministry Committee, Friday Night Group (women only), assisting with our Sunday School, attending or leading a Bible class or study group, serving as an offering counter, or assisting with one or more of the many administrative tasks that need to be attended to.
We have been blessed to be involved in several meaningful outreach programs. We provide food for several hundred low-income seniors every Saturday morning. Volunteers are needed to set up, hand out food, and clean up. Our Friday Night Group is participating in providing menstrual kits for the San Francisco/Peninsula chapter of Days for Girls (https://www.daysforgirls.org). Both men and women may volunteer in this project. Several other programs are being talked about and planned for that involve supporting the staff of The Avenues Care facility and
participation in Project Homeless Connect. Perhaps you have additional ideas on how we might broaden our outreach.
