Joy Lutheran is the Eagle River site where people can come pick up ingredients for their thanksgiving meal. Event is hosted by Love INC (in the name of Christ). Volunteers are needed for set up, hosting, and cleaning up. As a congregation we have an annual goal to guide our donations. Our 2016 goal: 300 cans of cranberries.
Beer and Hymns
We celebrate our Lutheran German heritage by singing hymns while drinking beer (or the beverage of your choice), and we care for our neighbor at the same time. Beer and Hymns is an annual fundraiser to raise money to support the Eagle River Food Pantry.
God’s Work. Our Hand’s Sunday.
Once a year (usually the Sunday after Labor Day) we set aside a Sunday to serve our community as a congregation. The 2016 God’s Work, Our Hand’s Sunday theme was “Buy Two, Share Two.” We encouraged everyone to buy two items – one for the Food Pantry and one for Bean’s Café/Children’s Lunchbox – so they can continue to provide needed services in the community.
