Our congregation reaches out to those in need in our community
and throughout the world, with special focus on issues relating to hunger.
Some of our outreach programs include:
- We support the work of Lutheran Social Services of New York
and Lutheran World Relief through the benevolence portion of our budget.
Total support this fiscal year will amount to $7000.
- In addition, many of our members make additional gifts toward
the reduction of world hunger.
- Members contributed to the Harry Chapin Run Against Hunger in support of our three runners.
- In 2017 we provided about $2000 to help provide clean water in Sierra Leone.
- Each spring, we participate in an Offering of Letters, in which
we write our elected representatives on an issue relating to world hunger.
