King of Glory
...A place to grow
The Glory Garden is a project that uses 12 raised garden beds to grow vegetables for House of Neighborly Service. Volunteers plan, plant, weed and harvest. Fresh produce is then given to people in need in our community. A few beds are also rented so individuals can grow their own gardens. If you are interested in participating in this meaningful project please contact Karyn Eddins or Debbie Moors.
King of Glory traditionally conducts a special drive for the House of Neighborly Service (our local food pantry) during one month in the fall. HNS is in constant need of food, personal items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, tissues, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, feminine products, powdered laundry soap, toilet paper, razors, and disposable diapers (large and X-large), and volunteers. If you would like to learn about this special ministry and to work on a task force to plan and implement the annual drive, please contact the church office (669-5983 or Karyn Eddins). Be sure to let us know if you are willing to be the coordinator or chair of the group!
Several churches in the Loveland area participate in this important homeless ministry. For one week during a rotation, each church plays host to three to five families (men, women and children). During the day the adults go to work, search for work or work on their resumes or job hunting skills at The Angel House. The children go to school or to day care at The Angel House. Each evening the families return to the hosting church where we do our best to provide them with a stable and caring environment. We provide a meal, tutoring for the children, a comfortable room for each family and some relaxing down time with games, videos and fun.
Each hosting visit requires MANY volunteers - cooks, evening hosts, overnight hosts, laundry, tutors, etc. We invite you to come and participate in this important ministry. It is a very enjoyable evening, and you will forget that you are performing a service as you get to know the wonderful people that have found themselves in such need.

Volunteers are needed to serve lunch to the homeless and others who are in need of a meal the first Friday of EACH month! Serving shifts are from 10:00-11:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Call the church office at (970)669-5983 or Kayelle Shultz to volunteer!
The Christmas Bazaar is an annual event on the second Saturday in November that focuses on non-profit and handmade items. The congregation is invited to donate their handmade items and yummy baked goods. For the items King of Glory sells, all profits go to the House of Neighborly Service to assist people in our community. If you are interested in helping this team in any way, please contact Karyn Eddins at firstname.lastname@example.org.

King of Glory participates with the Children, Youth and Family Division of the Department of Human Services of Larimer County to bring a bit of sunshine to the lives of foster children in our community. We participate in a Giving Tree program at Christmas time, providing gifts the children have wished for through a caseworker. For more information on these programs contact Karyn Eddins.
Our congregation teams up with the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity to sponser work days at Habitat construction sites. Don't feel that construction experience is required, though being handy with a hammer, paintbrush or saw will certainly help. Contact Scott Johnson at (970)962-9058 for more information on the next scheduled work day.
Lutheran Family Services of Colorado (LFS) has been serving the vulnerable since 1948. Over the past 60 years we have been blessed with the support and generosity of Lutheran congregations across the Front Range.
