We all know about the power of prayer.  Many in our congregation serve in this ministry as "pray-ers", praying for those they may not even know.  If you would like to be one, please send an email note to Jill, our Parish Administrator. Prayer requests can be emailed to the same address or called in to the church office at 253-848-1098 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Twice a year, in April and October, the youth of our congregation volunteer to serve a hot meal to needy residents and homeless in the Hilltop area of Tacoma. Members of our congregation volunteer to make casseroles, salads; donate fruit, milk, rolls and paper plates to provide the meal.  This ministry is a partnership with Peace Lutheran Church in Tacoma, where the meals are served. This is a wonderful outreach program. We typically feed 75 to 125 people each visit.  Look for information and sign up sheets in the spring and fall. Even if cooking isn't your forte, we value your contribution.

Celebration Lutheran Church leads weekly mini-worship services at Meridian Hills and once-a-month worship at Willow Gardens (both local retirement communities).  Retirement ministers read lessons, lead songs (to prerecorded music), serve communion, and provide fellowship.  Although the 20-minute service is brief, our retirement congregational members eagerly anticipate these services. Many of our retirement ministers have found this work so fulfilling that they have served the retirement community for several years.  Even so, new leaders are encouraged to participate in this rewarding opportunity.  Training in the form of job shadowing and written notes is provided, but according to our Retirement Ministry Coordinator, Duncan Johnson, a retirement minister’s duties can best be compared to “a loving visit to your grandparents for half an hour.”  If you are interested in learning more about this ministry, give us a call at 253- 848-1098.  We would be happy to take you on a trial run so that you can see what it’s all about.

 Mission trips provide our high school youth with meaningful experiences. Many summers these trips are planned to Tecate, Mexico where youth from our church, and participating churches, directly help a family in need. Working side by side with Mexican families our youth team frames their home in one week with other churches doing other construction to complete a home from start to finish in a month's time. Other ministry activities are arranged in Tecate, from attending a recipient family's 6th grade graduation to a community talent show. It is our goal to have groups enjoy cross cultural experiences while in Mexico, making friends, strengthening relationships, meeting new challenges, and discover the power of God working in and through them.
