OUTREACH AT LORD OF LIFE

Service activities offer an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ – every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life – flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.
You work every day to make your community a better place. Let us continue doing this work together in 2020!
Last year, Lord of Life partnered with Rise Against Hunger, and international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable. Together, and with JOY, we packed over 15,000 meals.

Your sample-size toiletries help clients regain and maintain dignity, and are a necessity for those who, in finding their way to an independent and productive life, are employed or are seeking employment. Your gifts bring added relief from the struggles and social indignities that many who come to the Salvation Army must struggle with on a daily basis.
