Social Ministry Projects
God’s Global Barnyard
The Confirmation Classes will again be working on the ELCA Hunger Project. Funding of this project is life changing and can mean the difference between hope and despair to those in extreme need throughout the world. This program gives living gifts of livestock that recipients “pass on” to another needy family after their needs are met. Supporting this project is truly a means of giving that keeps on giving. The youth of the confirmation classes will be selling their baked goods once a month to earn money for their project.
World Hunger Appeal
Our Sunday school children along with members will again collect pennies for the ELCA World Hunger Appeal . These monies will be used by the ELCA World Hunger Appeal to feed the poor people in the world.
