Just as we are called to serve in our community here in the greater Kansas City area, we are also called to serve our global neighbors. We are blessed to be part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and their global ministries allow us to feed and serve our neighbors around the world.

ELCA World Hunger
More than 820 million people – that’s about 11 percent of people in our world today – are hungry. As members of the ELCA, we are called to respond. We are a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work.
Working with and through our congregations in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Lutheran churches overseas and other partners, ELCA World Hunger is uniquely positioned to reach communities in need. From health clinics to microloans, water wells to animal husbandry, community meals to advocacy, gifts to ELCA World Hunger make it possible for the ELCA to respond, supporting sustainable solutions that get at the root causes of hunger and poverty.
