Church Council Teams

Social Ministry Team

The goal of the Social Ministry team is to nourish our membership so they can carry out the mission of Mandarin Lutheran Church.  Our work welcomes new members, extends our worship, enhances youth and family programs, supports our community outreach and encourages our property team.

Our team welcomes new members with membership bags, new member receptions and assigning sponsor families.  We provide after worship refreshments, we organize and host a wide array of meals including Rally Day Picnic, Christmas Family Night Covered Dish Dinner, Shrove Tuesday Pancake dinner, Lenten Soup and Sandwich suppers VBS Dinners and work day breakfast.  Upon request, we organize receptions to celebrate family milestones such as baptism, confirmation, marriages and deaths.  We also organize fund raisers and social events such as the Annual  Auction, Chili cook-off and Square-dance.

The Social Ministry team welcomes anyone who would like to provide food, host an event or pitch in to setup or cleanup after an event.  Our events will be communicated in our church bulletin and announcements, on our Social Ministry board in the fellowship hall and through e-mail.  Please feel free to contact the fellowship team lead if you would like additional information or have ideas about how to serve.

The Outreach team organizes the activities to support the Mission of Mandarin Lutheran church in our community.  Our church has a number of ongoing community events including support of the Mandarin Foodbank, annual  Thanksgiving basket donations and sponsor a family at Christmas.  We also regularly work with organizations such as Lutheran Outdoor Ministries, Lutheran Social Services and Habijax.

The Community Outreach welcomes anyone who would like to support or take the lead on any of our events.   Our events are communicated in our church bulletin and announcements and through e-mail.  Please feel free to contact the Outreach team lead if you would like additional information or have ideas on how you might serve.

Property Team

The Property team works together to maintain the beautiful land and facilities that God has gifted MLC with.  The team coordinates work days which are designed to mobilize our disciples on one day to clean, repair and refresh anything and everything that needs it.  The team is lead by a council member but is comprised of members of the congregation who have the knowledge, passion and skillset to tackle anything from plumbing jobs to changing light bulbs and pulling weeds.  The team welcomes anyone interested in helping out!

Youth & Family Team

This team works to create fun and educational events and activities that bring our congregation together on a regular basis.  The team’s focus is on building on the passion of the youth and ensuring spiritual growth.
