Volunteer & Donate – Join Jesus’ Mission

Our desire is to join Jesus on His mission. This means actively seeking out ways to volunteer & donate to our neighbors with the same love that Christ has shown to us. We have many opportunities to volunteer & donate whether it’s in your own neighborhood, in our city, in our nation and even the world!

Many hands make light work…and it takes many hands to help run our facility. We are looking for you to be an active part of our ministry by getting involved.  Here are NEW opportunities to help at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church.
