Pontiac Community Service

Third Saturday each month, 9:00 am

Everyone is invited to pack lunches!

We pack over 200 complete lunches to distribute to the hungry in Pontiac.  Donations of chips, cookies, fruit, water, and cash are accepted at the church office.  Come to make sandwiches, fill lunch bags, or compile personal care kits, and stay to deliver the boxes of food if you can!

To find out more contact Dan Roeser -

Sharing Christ's love

We spend time throughout the year serving others on Mission Trips -near and far - San Antonio/Texas, Indianapolis/Indiana, Detroit/Michigan, West Virginia, South Dakota, Pontiac/Michigan, and right here in our backyard. As Lutherans, we know we don't do these things to earn God's love, but rather, we serve our neighbors and our world because God loves us and we "Get Too!"

See Pastor Judd or the office about getting involved!
