Ministry Happenings

The Shared Lutheran Ministry offers a variety of milestone celebrations and fellowship opportunities throughout the year. The Shared Lutheran Ministry proudly recognizes all the events and milestones in the lives of our members: baptisms, first communion, confirmation, and marriage/weddings. Other milestones include graduations (kindergarten, high school, college, etc), 1st day of school, 3rd grade Bibles and more. If you have an important milestone coming up in you or your child's life, feel free to share it with us!

The following are just a few of the ministry programs. Please check the monthly newsletter for more event info or the event calendar. All are welcome!

Sunday School

We have an awesome Sunday School! Kids from pre-K through 6th grade are welcome to come learn about our faith. Kids learn lessons through crafts, cooking, Bible study, art, music. You don't have to be a member to come, so bring the neighbors and friends! Sunday School is held the first Sunday of the month from 3:00-5:00 St. John Lutheran Church in Rutersville.

Day Camp

Our theme for the 2022 VBS is COME AS YOU ARE! All are welcome at Jesus' table of grace, just as we are. No dress code, no prerequisites. Jesus invites all people to come. And when we break bread together, Christ is revealed in our midst.

Participants are divided into groups called Villages. Each Village consists of a Lutherhill staff person, a Small Group Assistant, and campers similar in age. Bible Studies, nature learning, service opportunities, arts & crafts, and games take place during Village Time.

Lunch and snacks are provided. Breakfast is available for additional fee of $10.
