From the beginning, Nativity Lutheran Church has been engaged in the communities of Barrow and Walton County; We have made Bethlehem our home and care very much about what our neighbors care about: safety, healthy youth, supportive infrastructure, and affordable services for all. Our statement is
Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through worship, learning, witness, and service.
During the month of JUNE, Nativity will host the 'Church of the Month". This is a collaboration Barrow County churches to help those in our community who are in need. Please see Jane Dienes for more information and to sign up to help.
We will pack and give out a box for a week for each family with children.
The items we will need are cheese slices, lunch meat packs (ham, bologna, turkey, chicken), small bags of chips (cheetos, takis, popcorn, etc), cookies, donuts, cupcakes, cheese or peanut butter crackers, single size pouch, bottle or box juice drinks, break (white only please), hotgods, hot dog buns, pudding or jello snacks packs.
Twice a month, we give food boxes to 12 families that reside in the Briscoe Mill Mobile Home Park. We are running low on several items. If you can purchase any of these items, please remember we need these in quantities of 12.
If you don't want to shop and still wish to participate, we will be glad to take monetary donations in the form of gift cards, checks (please write 'Briscoe' in the memo line) or cash. Some monetary donations are used to provide small amounts of protein (like chicken, ground beef, hot dogs, etc)
These families are so grateful for our time and support. On the days we do distribution, we are arriving early and staying late to help with homework, play games, or just talk and/isten to these beautiful kids!

The Prayer Shawl & Quilting Ministry is a group of people who enjoy quilting, crocheting and knitting.
We have made shawls, which are given to people who have a chronic illness or surgery to wrap around them when they pray. Plus we do chemo hats and lap robes as needed.
We make quilts which are then sent through Lutheran World Relief to serve refugees all around the world.
We also provide quilts for local homeless shelters and youth homes throughout the community.
Our quilting ministry continues through Covid, but is mostly done independently. If you are interested in helping, contact Jean Hunt and she can give you ideas of how you can participate.
The Quilting Ministry is asking for donations of (used) curtains, tablecloths, upholstery material, bed sheets or just fabric that we could use for making quilts. Betty cuts the fabric into squares so we can make the quilt tops and we use the sheets for the back of the quilts. Any fabric is good. Examples are rayon, silk, satin broad cloth, cotton, muslin, corduroy, flannel, etc. Thanks!! The donations can be left in the quilt room or I can meet anyone or go to their home to pick it up. - Jean
For more information on the Quilting Ministry, contact Jean Hunt.
We have planted an assortment of vegetables; tomatoes, peppers, onions, potatoes, cucumber, etc. Assorted herbs; basil, dill, rosemary, as well as blueberry and blackberry bushes.
If you're hungry, come on by and enjoy some homegrownbboodness!
We need members of the congregation to help water, harvest, and weed the garden. Once foods become available we will be taking them to the Food Pantry in downtown Winder, and sharing with our ministry in Briscoe Mill.
