Ministry opportunities

There are many ways in which you can be involved in the ministry of the New Centerville Lutheran Parish. The following are a few examples of the opportunities for both the adults and youth.

In Fellowship

Weekly Parish Bible Study

Wednesday 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Each week we gather to study the scripture lessons for the up-coming Sunday worship.  Bring your Bible and bring your questions as together we explore God’s word as it encounters our life together.    This time together allows us to hear the word of God differently during worship.


We love to eat and partake in God’s bounty and harvest. Throughout the year there are many chances to setup, cook, and eat meals together including:

Lenten Soup Suppers

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner

Easter Breakfast

Many More!!!

In Service

Joint Council

DSC01446We work together as a parish to address the business and life concerns of the church, community, and world. We are about the business of spreading the Gospel and strengthening the proclaimation of God’s kingdom in our community.

Eucharistic Ministers

This team of people extends the table of Holy Commuion out into the community.  They provide visitation ministry to shut-ins, those who are hospitalized, and those who are in need.

Video Ministry

We record our Sunday worship service and then deliver these videos to those who cannot attend as they would like because of health or mobility issues.
