Social Ministries

Funeral Dinners – A variety of tasks are performed by the committee.  Co-chairs work together to organize the committee and help prepare for the luncheon.  Also a team calls from our volunteer list for food and workers.  Other volunteers have the choice of donating salads, relish, or desserts; helping serve the luncheon, or cleaning afterwards. Many hands make light work!  CONTACT PERSON(S): Jean Dahl, (402) 731-3144; [email protected]; Peggie Ortmeier, (402) 496-2144; [email protected]

Prayer Shawl Ministry – meets to share the joyous, prayerful fellowship of loving, compassionate crafting!  In just a few years, we have presented more than four hundred Prayer Shawls and countless prayer stoles, and pocket prayer quilts.  Everyone has something to contribute to this loving work of comforting those in crisis.   Instruction and donated yarns are available if needed to create Prayer Shawls and other items to give love to those in need.  We meet year around on the second Sunday of the month in the SEA Parish Center Family Room from 1-4 pm and the last Thursday of the month from 1-3 pm. CONTACT PERSONS: Joan Connor (402) 493-3702; [email protected]; Mary Ann Miller (402) 468-4014; m[email protected]
