Christmas Gift Tree
These is a community-wide project that has been headed up by Grace for over 10 years. Through community placed trees with ornaments, gifts are given to children in need; as well gift cards for food and fuel for those families as well. This begins in mid-November with the gifts and gifts cards received by the families in need before Christmas.
Feed My Starving Children
This is done at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Sheboygan Falls. The participants assemble meals that feed in the 10s of thousands of meals to the starving. This event is in early October.
Operation: Christmas Child
This is a drive to assemble Christmas boxes for children overseas that receive nothing at Christmas. The congregation collects specific items starting in late spring and concludes in November with the sorting of those items and packing them into the shoe boxes so they can be shipped overseas in time for Christmas.
Annual Community Block Party
This is new event that began in 2023. We are looking to continue it in 2024. The plan is to have it in the early summer. This is an event on our church grounds that seeks to draw people from the area and our congregation to enjoy fun together on our church grounds, have a free meal and participate in some activities.
Outdoor Worship Service and Church Picnic
The first Sunday of June, we have an outdoor worship service with a guest pastor on a special theme. We also welcome new members and have a blessing and prayer for our high school graduates.
After the worship service, we have a free church picnic / potluck, which is followed by games for the kids and bingo for the adults and children.
Coats for Kids
This is an event that begins in late March / early April and through October. We collect NEW jackets that can be distributed to families and children who cannot afford heavier jackets for winter and cold weather wear. We keep a blue collection barrel in our north entry way for those jackets. New and handmade hats and handwear are also welcome.
Valentines for ‘Project Angel Hugs’
There are children throughout our area who are battling cancer. Starting in September we collect, make, and sign Valentines for these area children. We give them to "Project Angel Hugs," who distributes them to these children in the early days of February.
