Mission Ministries Committee
Mission Ministries oversees the outward ministry of GSLC. This includes any work we do in the community of Peshtigo and surrounding areas and throughout the nation and world. Two council members chair this very active group and work with several dedicated teams for some of the largest ministry opportunities we offer.
Care for the church building, the parsonage where the pastor and family lives, and the grounds around the property are the job of this group. Regular maintenance, semi-annual cleanups in spring and fall, and attending to items that need repair or replacement keeps this committee very active throughout the year.
Christian Education Committee
As part of fulfilling the promises made at baptism, our Education committee provides opportunities to learn more about God and God's love for all age groups. All Christian Education takes place on Wednesday's, 6-7pm, at our Fire Night. The SPARKS group is for pre-K-5th grade students and is like the traditional Sunday school. The FIRED UP group is for 6th-8th grade students and is our confirmation youth group. Our 9th-adulthood students attend ReKindled. We gather as a large group to begin the evening with a time of singing and prayer. Then we break up into our smaller groups for learning. Every few weeks we have a fun night where the generations come together to laugh!
Congregational Care Committee
While outward mission is the focus of the congregation, we also recognize the need to care for our own souls as well. This committee helps facilitate that inner care by providing opportunities to share meals together, have fun group activities, and keep our kitchen well stocked for times of fellowship.
