Love in Action

Congregational members are assigned to one of six Love in Action Teams.  Each month, one Love in Action Team serves in different capacities including Sunday Morning Worship Assistants (greeters, ushers, lector, communion servers) and Food and Fellowship Servers.  Love in Action Teams also take turns helping with funerals and weddings as needed.  Two Church Council members serve as the chairs of each Love In Action Team and will help coordinate the sign-up of needed volunteers.

Altar Guild

The Altar Guild is a group of members who take care of anything associated with the altar and chancel area.  Duties include setting up (and cleaning up after) communion, changing and taking care of the paraments (colored altar cloths) for each season of the church year, and taking care of the altar needs and chancel area.
At this time, we would like to have twenty-four members (two per month), in which you may sign-up for one month a year. If interested, please contact Peg Dohrer or Karla Wellnitz for more information.

Peace Circle

At American Lutheran Church, an opportunity for fellowship and Bible Study is offered to the women of the church through Peace Circle.  Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month from Noon-1:00pm.

The Circle is a self-selected cluster of members who bond together in Christian love, who help to bear each other's burden, while sharing Bible studies, opportunities for food, fellowship, social activities, and community service.  A study lesson of the month is provided through the use of the Gather Magazine, WELCA's official magazine.  We have no formal WELCA meeting, but do the business of the women's group during Circle.

Our group organizes the food and craft sale (Mission Bake Sale) in the fall, with proceeds going to various missions.  We meet in the Spring and Fall with other WELCA groups in northeast South Dakota and learn what they are doing, along with the need for new projects too.  The school bags the members fill are sent to Lutheran World Relief for those in need around the world.

All are welcome to join us when you can, or if interested in another time, please let us know.

Wine, Women, and the Word

The group meets once a month on a Sunday evening for food, fellowship, Bible Study, and conversation.
