Social Ministry seeks to serve those in need and to advocate for justice. We strive to do this on a local level as well as seeking to reach out globally through organizations such as Lutheran World Relief and Church World Service.
Child Care Center Jerusalem
Child Care and Learning Center offers high quality, compassionate and reliable child care, early learning and school age programming for children ages 2–12 years old. Our experienced staff provides a Christian based curriculum that focuses on building positive social and emotional development and growth of the individual child.
Worship and Music
The Worship and Music Committee meets with the Pastor, Music Director, and the Altar Guild throughout the year to plan and schedule all of the church's worship services. The committee also organizes the Lenten soup suppers, Harvest Home to benefit the food pantry and the decoration of the church for Christmas. New members are always welcome.
Disaster Relief Volunteers
The Jerusalem church community has sponsored a Volunteer Disaster Relief team over the last several years as part of an outreach ministry to others. Due to the damage and destruction of recent hurricanes, teams have been sent to New Jersey to help rebuild homes of families in need. Please join us as we continue to extend and lend our hands to others.
Faith Formation leaders organize creative educationial and faith-deepening opportuntities for people of all ages, incduling staying in touch with parents from their children’s baptism until they are three, Sunday School for ages 3 through 90, first Communion when children yearn to receive the Sacrament of the Altar, Confirmation class, intergenerational learning, and intergenerational events.
Faith and Families Ministry
At Jerusalem Lutheran Faith and Families Ministry is proud to prepare our youth and families for a lifelong walk with Christ. Wanting to erase the stereotype that "family" means only mother, father and children, we encourage everyone to think outside of the box and remember that family can be a church family as well as blood relatives. We are ALL children of God, so we are All part of God's Family. Faith shaping events include: Bear Creek Camp, Easter Egg Hunt, Christmas Party, Why is Good Friday Good, God’s Barnyard, Souperbowl of Caring, National Youth Gathering, Vacation Bible School and many more activities that include youth and families of all ages.

Schuylkill Haven Food Pantry
A cooperative ministry of the council of churches, Jerusalem passionately supports the local food pantry with gifts of money, canned goods, and volunteers. Serving 175-200 qualifying households each month, food is distributed from the pantry site located in the back of the Walk In Arts Center from 1:00-4:00 PM on the third Friday of each month. In addition to food, children’s diapers and adult incontinence supplies are given out when they become available from the Philadelphia Diaper Bank.
Last year our members gave over $5,300 to the pantry, as well as over 1600 food items. Jerusalem’s volunteers transported thousands of diapers from the diaper drop off point in Easton, to Schuylkill Haven during the course of the year. In addition, our drivers went to the Reading area to bring back a pickup truck full of potatoes and carrots grown and given by iHart Harvest, Inc.—The Potato Project.
Donations of money or canned goods are always welcome. If you would like to volunteer, workers are needed at the pantry behind The Walk In Center at 220 Parkway in Schuylkill Haven every Monday from 8:30-10:30 AM. During distribution, volunteers are need on third Fridays noon-4:00 PM. Volunteer orientation will be provided.
