Opportunities for Spiritual Growth and Christian Service
Most of our in-person activities are on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic, but keep an eye on our upcoming events for our virtual and drive-up events!
This page includes a selection of our usual ministries. We can't wait to see everyone in person again!
Making a Joyful Noise
At the moment, we mainly make our joyful noise together each week with a virtual hymn sing hosted on Zoom by our music director, Mike Nault. Our in-person music ministries have included:
Shepherd choir: a choral group for high school age and older
Handbell choir: junior high school age and older
Instrumentalists: guitar, flute, trumpet, saxophone, clarinet, piano, organ, etc.
Children sing as part of Children’s Church each Sunday during Worship
Presently, a virtual Bible Study is held on Zoom each Monday at 7:00 PM.
Our in-person Christian Education activities in the past have included:
The adult Sunday school class at 9:00 AM before Sunday Worship
Two Bible Study classes each week on Tuesday: one at 10:00 AM and one at 6:30 PM

As a congregation we support Souper Bowl of Caring, our local soup kitchen, Salvation Army, Protestant Preschool & Kindergarten (which is housed in our facility), Laundry Love of Goldsboro, Lutheran World Relief, and many other organizations that do good in the Goldsboro area and the world.
