Serving in our World


← Return to Service Page

Opportunities to serve are not limited to our church and community. KOG supports many ministries and mission opportunities worldwide.


Project Day

Project Day volunteers make quilts that are distributed by Lutheran World Relief Mission Quilts as a tangible way to express love to our neighbors in need. Quilts can be used as warm bedding, simple tents, or floor coverings. Each one reflects God's loving presence in a world rife with suffering. 

Volunteers gather in LL17 on the third Tuesday of each month from 9:30-2:00 to assemble quilts for LWR. Bring your lunch and join us for this worthwhile project and the fellowship. Sewing skills are helpful, but if you can measure, cut fabric, thread a needle, or tie a knot, we need you! For more information, contact Phyllis Beck at   or 214-554-1326.
