Share A Meal Program

Hospitalization, illness, death in the family are all reasons individuals might need short term meal assistance.

Helping Hands

Rides to church, Dr.’s appointments, the grocery store, etc. can be difficult for some.  Offering someone a ride is a great way to make a new friend and help someone in need.

Shut-In Ministry

The shut-in ministry is a very fulfilling ministry meeting a great need of the elderly. Some of the elderly members of the church can no longer physically make it to services on a regular basis or even at all. Some are still in their own homes, while others are in nursing homes. Volunteers from the church make weekly visits to these members. They are given a CD of the latest church service to stay in touch with the church and to be able to worship wherever they are located.

Money Life Coaching

Trained individual financial counselors are available to help you get your finances in order.

Grief Care

If you or someone you know is grieving a loss, we invite you to consider joining Grief Care. This Christ-centered grief support group will meet in Pastor Reichmann’s office off of the FIL Fellowship Hall.

 If you are experiencing grief after the loss of someone special to you, you may have asked yourself:

  • What is happening to me?
  • Am I going crazy?
  • Why should I go on anymore?

Consider joining a group of caring Christian individuals to safely share your thoughts, feelings and fears.

You will learn you are not crazy, you are experiencing the intense emotions that make up grief. Although your journey through grief will be uniquely your own, by sharing with others you may find the weight of your emotions lighten. You may also learn strategies for effectively dealing with the emotional and practical challenges grief can create.

The only way out of grief is going through it. Consider joining others who can understand and empathize with your loss. Contact the church office for more information or to register, 262-377-6610.

GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays (Usually in November every year) 

The loss of someone close may present new challenges during the holidays. Why?

Please consider attending a special grief support workshop that offers you an opportunity to share your loss and concerns, while learning from others. Topics include:

  • Why are the holidays so tough?
  • What can I expect?
  • How can I prepare for the holidays?
  • Learn how to manage relationships, and holiday event.
  • Learn to use the holidays to heal your heart.
  • Consider bringing a friend or relative.
