There are two more weeks of August. Please remember our outreach efforts:

OUR OUTREACH FOCUS FOR AUGUST IS THE LUTHERAN DISASTER RESPONSE, an ELCA organization, which strives to bring hope and healing to communities in need in the midst of disasters. Key areas of work include providing emotional and spiritual care for people affected by a disaster, coordinating volunteers with local affiliates affected by a disaster, assisting refugees in a holistic manner, helping communities build their assets to reduce the effects of likely disaster, and providing long-term recovery efforts to address unmet needs months or even years after a disaster strikes.

METRO CARING AUGUST FOOD FOCUS: The Outreach Committee has designated BABY FOOD, INCLUDING INFANT FORMULA for those less fortunate. Please place your food donations in the boxes located in the narthex marked “Metro Caring.”
