OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE




Mission Team works to identify and serve the needs in our community and the world while being a resource to our church family on providing opportunities to serve those needs within our greater community.  There are many small groups that 

serve and support mission in our community and globally.
In the community
  • The Community Table –  Lake Street members and friends prepare and serve a meal for The Community Table once a month.  It is an easy way to reach out in LOVE to our neighbors’ right here in Eau Claire.  No experience is needed, just a willing spirit and to reflect God’s love through your words and actions.
  • Planned Acts of Christian Kindness – P.A.C.K. events are scheduled once a month with the goal of being the church outside the church building.  Our volunteer teams, our acts and out dates change each month as we reach out into the community sharing God’s LOVE; one simple planned act at a time.
  • Interfaith Hospitality Network –The Beacon House is a family or single woman homeless shelter.  A team from Lake Street serves there on a quarterly basis, providing evening meals, childcare services and overnight supervisors.
  • Day of Mission happens once a summer when the United Methodist Churches in the area’s Circuit work together to put our faith into action. Our projects range from gardening, painting, cleaning and simple building projects; putting our skills into action to serve and LOVE others.
  • Good Neighbor Project is a group of neighborhood churches, including Lake Street United Methodist Church, that seek to reduce financial obstacles that may affect students’ ability to participate in the classroom or school activities. The program serves Longfellow and Lakeshore Elementary Schools.
