Wanted: donations of shelf-stable foods like pre-packaged trail mix, granola bars, dried fruits, meal bars, jerky, packets of tuna, canned meats and bottled water for the church office to have on hand for hungry neighbors. It’s a blessing to be able to offer two or three items to a hungry person along with the directions to the Food Pantry. Also welcome, donations of canned and boxed foods that we can pass on to the Lutheran Social Services of Alaska Food Pantry.
THANK YOU to our many Central members who donate funds or portions of the meal to our monthly evening meal for the women and children at Clare House. Each fourth Thursday, including Thanksgiving, we deliver a complete meal with milk, main and side dishes, fruit and dessert.
Local Organizing Ministry: Want to make a difference in your community? Along with Anchorage Faith & Action Congregations Together AFACT, Central folks and Pastor Jeff, listens to our congregation and Fairview neighbors, builds relationships, and develops leaders. Through these relationships, we identify issues and work to effect change in ourselves and in the public sphere. Contact Pastor Jeff to find out how you can get involved. We meet every other Tuesday and the current focus is to get to know our Fairview neighbors and our homeless neighbors and see how we can grow relationships with them.
