HeartStrings Blanket Ministry meets the second Wednesday of each month at 12:30 pm in room 100 to make blankets that are given to people with various needs. In the spirit of 1 Peter 1:22b, “love one another deeply from the heart," blankets are prayed for and distributed to those who are ill, hospitalized, need encouragement, or have a physical need to keep warm. Blankets have been distributed to Haiti, Native American Indian reservations, children’s homes, nursing homes and to a variety of individuals. No skills are required to participate, just willing hands to work. If you have questions, please contact Donna Boyd.

It's so important for people to feel warmly welcomed when they come to SLW - and that's what the Welcoming Team is all about! Each weekend our greeters, ushers, and Hub coffee team members help welcome new and existing families to our gatherings. If it's a high priority for you to help people feel comfortable, welcomed and valued, then we'd love to have you join one of our welcoming teams. Whether it's offering a handshake, handing out a bulletin, showing someone around our facility, or serving a cup of coffee, we want to help everyone who walks through our doors feel at ease as they experience SLW! For more information on joining the Welcoming Team, please contact Mike Simmons.
At SLW we are committed to providing quality opportunities for men and women to connect spiritually, relationally, and emotionally. We do this through Bible Study opportunities in the Fall and Spring and various events throughout the year. We encourage you to take the plunge and dive into these ministry options as often as you can. For more information, contact Small Groups Champion, Donna Boyd.
Worship & Tech
SLW's Worship Team consists of vocalists, instrumentalists, sound techs, media techs, light techs, and more! We have a talented team of men and women who serve in various capacities with the Worship Team, but we could always use one more gifted, willing person to step up and serve. If you love Jesus, know what it means to be humble and ego-less in a high-visibility platform ministry, and believe you just might have some God-given skills to assist in worship of our Creator, please let us know. In fact, if you have any questions about serving with the Worship Team, please contact Matthew Lauletta.
Life Groups meet in homes around the region, and are an excellent way to not only deepen the soul but also to find relationship. Life Groups enjoy good food, great conversation, and a down-to-earth reflection on the Sunday morning message through group discussion. Life Groups meet twice each month, and we have a variety of days and times groups are offered. If you'd like to know where there's a Life Group in your area - or would like to consider leading or hosting a group - please contact Donna Boyd. | Ask a Question
The Family Table is an excellent, free meal on Wednesday evenings prior to the start of our Wednesday night lineup. Join us in the Family Life Center from 5:45 to 6:15pm for a healthy, home-cooked meal! This gathering is a great way to catch up with long-time friends, as well as meet others who are participating or serving on Wednesday nights. And as already mentioned, the meal is free - donations are accepted, but never expected! PLEASE NOTE - Meals are only served on the Wednesdays that Uchooz is scheduled, so make sure to watch the Uchooz schedule closely! Also, would you like to join the team? We'd love to have you help cook, serve, setup, or tear down, so please contact us at (724) 376-2233 or at the church office if you'd be interested in serving. Ask a Question | Join the Team
