Bible School for Special People/BSSP

 Our church offers a meaningful Christian atmosphere for people with special  challenges. The program has been running continuously for over 50 years. We offer weekly Bible school on Saturdays from 10 am to noon during the school year. Each week the program includes time for devotion, sharing through prayer , Bible stories, singing, activities, and a light snack. We also have a week long VBS for the class during the Summer. 

Lutheran Women's Missionary League/LWML

Our church has a very active LWML group that meets monthly. Each Spring the group has their major fundraiser making thousands of chocolate covered eggs for Easter. While this is an LWML project most of the congregation comes out to help make the eggs. Proceeds from the fundraiser go to support good works locally as well as mission work in other countries. In addition to the local activities some members participate in regional and national LWML activities.

Quilting Group

Each year a dedicated group of women  (and men) come together to make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. These beautiful quilts are distributed to those in need around the world. In recent years hundreds of quilts have gone to the countries of Georgia, Burkina Faso, India and  Tanzania.

Stephen Ministry

We have a growing and active Stephen Ministry program. Stephen Ministries is a one-to-one lay caring ministry.  Our congregation has several trained Stephen Leaders and a dedicated group of Stephen Ministers who are trained and actively serving the needs of our community.

Breakfasts for Needy and Homeless

Even in a small town like Seaford, homelessness is a problem. While organizations such as Code Purple provide shelter for cold nights, hunger remains a problem. Several members of our congregation felt a call to help with this need. Through a donation supported effort, free Sunday breakfast is available in our fellowship hall in the colder months of the year.

Fellowship Dinners and Activities

Our church fellowship hall can seat 120 for dinners and the adjoining commercial grade kitchen has helped turn out many delicious meals. Our dedicated fellowship team keep things running smoothly for the various dinners, potlucks, workshops and other activities happening in our congregation throughout the year.

Youth Ministries

Our small but active youth group comes together regularly for fun, fellowship and food. The leaders provide a safe nurturing Christian environment where all teens are welcome.

Music Ministries

Our contemporary service is supported by a group of musicians and vocalists performing today's Christian favorites. Our traditional service is supported by our organist for liturgy and hymns. Our active choir performs at the traditional service Fall through Spring. Our Men's Quartet and Summer Singers group round out our music program. Last, but not least, our Pastor Dave will often pass out the song books and share his talents on the guitar for a little 'Joyful Noise' to set the mood before meetings and gatherings.


Our Evangelism team is actively engaged in recruiting 'everyday missionaries' to join Jesus on His mission. We are using the steps outlined in Greg Finke's book, Joining Jesus on His Mission, along with the LCMS Southeastern District iNeighborhood program to reach beyond our church walls to bring the good news of God's love into the neighborhoods where we live, work and play.
