Reflections: Lord, help us to lay our head on the cushion with you and to trust that in you we can find peace in every situation because you have blessed us with a hope that can't be shaken away from us and have blessed us with gifts that can stifle any storm. Amen.

Social Ministry


Social Ministry deals with the Church's work in the community. Social Ministry supports Lutheran Urban Ministry, Kids to Camp, Christmas Hampers, Winnipeg Harvest, Meals on Wheels and Kairos.
 
The only budgeted, financial contribution we make is to Lutheran Urban Ministry. Lutheran Urban Ministry is supported by the synod and provides services to the inner city. Their role is evolving and we are reassessing our commitment to respond to their socialneeds.
 
Twice a year, we ask for offerings for Kids to Camp and Christmas Hampers. We also ask for gifts for Christmas Hampers.  Volunteers are used to build and deliver the Hampers.
 
We support Winnipeg Harvest by special gifts at designated times throughout the year. Last year we collected baby food at Christmas time.
 
Meals on Wheels is a volunteer organization that delivers hot meals to shut-ins.
 
Kairos is an educational and social justice organization supported by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC).
