We have several ways to be involved in Outreach Ministry at Messiah. Below are a few ways that we are currently pursuing.
Tuesday Quiltinf Workshop: Meets every week from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. sewing quilts for Lutheran World Relief and local homeless shelters and adult size bibs, lap throws, and neck pillows for local nursing centers. You don’t have to be a sewer to join.
Look what Messiah is Doing to Help Our Neighbors
As of the beginning of May 2017, so far this year we collected $485.50 to go toward purchasing food for the Eleanor Kennedy Homeless Shelter; Collected over 220 pounds of food for UCM; Donated $717.50 to Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR); and, sent $160.90 to ELCA World Hunger Relief. In January and February we collected $450 in benevolence to go toward Route One Community Kitchen (ROCK). The children also reached their goal of collecting 500 snack items for UCM and are now on their way to collecting 500 units of Canned Meat.
We are also looking for other ways we can reach out to the community the surrounds Messiah Lutheran. If you have any suggestions, you can send a message or call the office at 703-765-5003.
