Our Supported Ministries
These ministries are facilitated by the Missions Team and made possible by your financial gifts and prayers.
ELCA World Hunger. During our annual Bread Sunday/Bread Weekend in August, folks can “buy” homemade breads/bread goods, learn facts about hunger, and give special offerings to support ELCA World Hunger programs.
Bread for the World. As a member church of this ELCA advocacy partner, we agree to participate in its annual “Offering of Letters” to Congress to advocate for hunger-related legislation.
Fair Trade to benefit small farmers. Each month we sell “Equal Exchange” coffee, tea, oil, and candy. Buying these fairly traded products helps provide fair remuneration for the farmers. Proceeds (over our cost) are sent to ELCA World Hunger.
Missionaries Curtis and Katie Kline, Columbia. Curtis accompanies the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Columbia to promote and protect human rights and build peace. Katie serves with the Church’s youth and women’s ministries.
