Much of our community ministry efforts focus on supporting organizations that seek to find solutions to poverty, and more specifically food insecurity. This includes the Green Apple Food Pantry, ACCESS of West Michigan, St. Mark's Breakfast Cafe, and IHN (Interfaith Hospitality Network - a program of Family Promise of Grand Rapids). Our ministries include monthly collections as well as special events.
Matthew 22:36-40 teaches us that we are to love our neighbors as ourselves, and it is our understanding that this means EVERYONE. We strive to show that love in a tangible way through a variety of programs and volunteer events. Reflecting a key phrase of the ELCA, this is "God's Work. Our Hands."
