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’s ministry to end hunger and poverty.  We walk alongside our partners and companions in the US and more than 60 other countries.  Your gifts to ELCA World Hunger address hunger and poverty around the world with creative and courageous action.

This Lent, you are invited to join together with fellow supporters to study, reflect, and give during ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving.  Experience how the grace of Christ moves us to engage in transformative works of love around the world as God calls us into the ministry of hope, liberation, and restoration for our world.

Palms for Palm Sunday

The palms we will use on Palm Sunday (April 14th) are brought to you by Eco-Palms, a Lutheran World Relief partner.   Eco-Palms communities use harvesting methods that protect the land they so greatly depend on for their livelihood; methods which also aid substantially in the community’s investment in forest fire protection.  What’s more, their harvesting process provides jobs and income to growing communities instead of middlemen reaping the benefits.  See the story at:

Habitat Update

SAVE THE DATE!!  The CtK Habitat Work Day will be Saturday, June 1st this year.  If all goes according to plan, we will be FRAMING per request.  Keep in mind, there was a lot of snow this winter—could be a late start.  Either way, thanks!  ~ Rap Fairley for CtK Habitat
