Where to worship, religious services in the community

By Deputy Garrison Chaplain Luis V. Kruger, Jr.
USAG Stuttgart Religious Support Office

One of the first questions Soldiers and family members want to know upon arrival to USAG Stuttgart is “Where can I worship?” The Religious Support Office (RSO) is committed to help you and your family grow in your faith while here. Whatever your religious background, our aim is for you and your family to find a place where you can deepen your spiritual walk, develop spiritual resiliency and make friends along the way.

Several types of worship services are offered in four different locations at various times to provide options for you to attend. Many of our services offer childcare (ages 6 weeks to 5 years old) and children’s church programs. All of our child volunteers have cleared background checks to insure the safety of your children while being cared for.

Small groups such as Protestant Women of the Chapel (PWOC), Catholic Women of the Chapel (CWOC), Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPs), Youth ministries, Men’s ministries and many other ministries are also available to help you with your spiritual growth.

Most of our ministry support comes from our volunteers. The RSO manages one of the largest volunteer organizations on the installation. If you have a desire to volunteer, there’s a place for you.

Our Family Life Chaplain is a trained pastoral counselor who works to help Soldiers, family members, and civilians through various counseling techniques and marriage retreats. The Family Life Chaplain has a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. All counseling is confidential.

Whether it’s a worship experience, small group fellowship, volunteering, or counseling that you seek, we encourage you and your family to take advantage of what the RSO offers here at USAG Stuttgart. Join us this week in one of our worship services and participate in our exciting religious programs.
