LIFE Groups

Insider Information for LIFE Group Hosts

God calls us to be the hands and feet of Christ. Below are some serving opportunities that your LIFE group can be a part of. Check back often as we will continue to post new opportunities here.

One-Time Serving Opportunities

Terry Redlin Reading Project

Terry Redlin Reading Project. Engage with families by reading a book aloud to small groups, giving the families their own copy of the book, letting students choose an additional book to take home, and then giving them a summer treat on the way out the door!  Great opportunity to serve as an individual or as a family!

Ongoing Serving Opportunities

Mentors Needed at Terry Redlin

Even though it is still summer the staff at Terry Redlin has let us know that there are still students who are waiting for someone to mentor them starting this fall. Those interested in changing a child’s life and being a great source of encouragement as a mentor begin by filling out the application on Lutheran Social Services website. Follow this link for more information.

Celebrate Church Prison Ministry Opportunity

Celebrate Freedom, our own Prison Ministry, has been given the opportunity to work with Volunteers of America at their Summit Heights apartments in downtown Sioux Falls.  Our plan is to use the community room for a Saturday afternoon lunch of soup and sandwiches. This will help us build relationships, offer a brief spiritual program and eventually invite and transport them to 5pm Saturday service at Celebrate.

Two things are needed to accomplish this:

  1. Life Groups that will provide and serve a meal on Saturdays.  The more Life Groups involved, the less times they will serve.  Ideally we are hoping for ten Life Groups that will serve on a rotating basis.
  2. Sponsor and purchase Bibles (approximately $4-5 each) to be given to those that need them.  Any Life Group can take part in this.

If interested, please contact Al Neis (605)940-3777 or Rich Roste (605)359-2541. Thank you!

Serving Sunday Lunch at St. Francis House

St Francis house lacks volunteers to serve lunch on Sundays. Three people are needed every Sunday, from 11:45am to 12:30pm. It’s as easy as scooping food on a plate, along with a smile. If interested, contact Jodi Erickson at (605)321-9533.
