Reaching out in Christ's Name

Alleluia is committed to reaching out to our community and to the world through ongoing mission and service. Throughout the year, there are a variety of opportunities to serve either as an individual or as a family. Service opportunities include:

God's Work. Our Hands Service

Alleluia joins with ELCA churches from around the country in a day of service in the fall. For more information, please contact Carol Bauer-Langager.   

Feed the Hungry

The first Sunday of the month is always “Food Shelf” Sunday and worshipers can bring food that will be delivered to the Hanover Food Shelf. Teams of adults and youth also volunteer at both the Hanover and Buffalo Food shelves throughout the year. Alleluia also participates in Minnesota Food Share Month in March.

CommUNITY Food and Coat Drive

This annual event will be held in October 2019 to collect food and winter coats, hats and mittens for the Hanover Food Shelf. Drop-off site is staffed by adult and youth volunteers at St. Michael City Hall.

Trick or Trunk

This community event will be held in October 2019. It takes place the Saturday of Halloween to provide a safe and fun place for children to “Trick of Trunk.”

Operation Christmas Child

Provide gift boxes to children in need. This family-friendly “packing” event will happen in November 2019 at the Historic Church in order to get gifts to families in time for Christmas.


This annual service event will take place in November 2019 after worship and includes a variety of family-friendly service projects that benefit a number of different organizations.


This day of service for the whole family will take place in Spring 2019 beginning at 11:00 a.m.  The format is simple. We gather after worship for a quick meal before being sent out for a variety of service opportunities throughout the community. EVERYONE is welcome to attend. To sign up, contact Carol Bauer-Langager or Lori DeRoo

Ronald McDonald House

RMH houses families who have children receiving medical treatment at the University of Minnesota. Throughout the year there are opportunities to serve dinner to the families staying at there as well as to offer friendly conversation and encouragement.
