January Outreach Focus -

Undies and Socks for the Hope Center

 

Do you wear underwear? Do you wear socks?

These are luxuries that some in our community do not have - but you can help! During January, our outreach offering focus will be socks and undies for Hope Center. Donations may be put in the shopping cart in the narthex. (Donations are accepted and appreciated year round … those donations should go in the big blue bin located in the Donation Location.)

 

The greatest needs are for socks (all sizes) and underwear: kids (all sizes), ladies (sizes 5-8), and men (small and medium sizes.) Contact Brian Cranfill at 262-786-2619 with questions.

Loaves and Fishes Meal

Served at the Hope Center, Loaves and Fishes is a meal for the homeless and hungry in Waukesha. St. John’s is assigned 2-3 Sundays each year to prep and serve this meal. Our dates for 2020 are February 16 and October 4. Want to help prep or serve this meal? Watch for a sign up sheet on the narthex bulletin board. Direct questions to Dawn Williams.



Hope Center Project Move 

The Hope Center accepts donations of household items (i.e. furniture and appliances). These items are then given to clients. Project Move uses volunteer teams from the community to pick up and deliver the items. St. John's has two teams; led by Mike Hintz and Chris Klink. Extra muscle power is always welcome. Please contact them if you are interested in helping with this ministry - as a regular or as a substitute. The assigned 2020 dates are:

01/18 ... Mike

03/07 ... Chris

04/25 ... Mike

ELCA Hunger Appeal

The world provides enough food for all, but more than 800 million people around the world face chronic hunger. We believe in a God of abundance, so as a church, we live out our call in baptism to strive for a just world where all are fed. ELCA World Hunger is our church wide ministry to end hunger and poverty. We walk alongside our partners and companions in the United States and more than 60 other countries. Your gifts to ELCA World Hunger address hunger and poverty around the world with creative and courageous action. St Johns is recognized as one of the top donating churches to the ELCA World Hunger Appeal. For more information visit: https://www.elca.org/hunger

 

Bread for the World  

Bread for the World i a collective Christian voice urging our nation's decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad.  Moved by God's grace in Jesus Christ, we advocate for a world without hunger. Bread members send letters and emails, make phone calls, and visit their members of Congress about legislation that addresses hunger in the U.S. and around the world.  Bread equips its members to communicate with Congress and to work with others on advocacy.  It educates members on hunger-related isses and inspires members to be legislative activists as a way of putting their Christian faith into action.


St John's has an Offering of Letters weekend each year, usually in April. 2020 will be our 13th year.  The 2019 campaign urged our government to accelerate progress toward ending hunger by increasing fudning for global nutrition programs and asking Congress to increase funding for the nutrition and health of mothers, infants, and children.
