MARCH’S BENEVOLENCE was to Camp Frederick Lutheran Camp in Rogers, OH. This ministry provides a Christian outdoor ministry to youth of all ages. In 2019 the congregation donated $3,035.00 to the camps ministry. The congregation also provided scholarships for member youth to attend camp.
AUGUST’S BENEVOLENCE was the Banquet of Salem. This local ministry provides hot nutritious free meals five times month (every Monday and the 4th Thursday of the month) to citizens of Salem every Monday evening. This was also an opportunity to do hands on ministry as the congregation was encouraged not just to provide the funding for the free meal but also provide the work crew to host and serve the dinner. This year the congregation donated $965.00 for the Banquet of Salem and provided 25 workers to host the meal.
Greenford Lutheran is pleased to prayerfully and financially support the Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley. Below is a description of their ministry as quoted from their website.
To resurrect an old phrase, The Rescue Mission is much more than just “three hots and a cot.” While we do provide food and overnight shelter to the homeless and others in need, that is only the beginning of our work.
Our goal is to help those who find themselves in difficult circumstances, regardless of how they got there, transform their lives and become independent and self-sustaining citizens again.
To achieve this goal, we offer our clients guidance, education and job placement services within the Mission, as well as referrals to many additional programs in the community.
Here are some of the many ways The Rescue Mission is different:
