We have many opportunities to help the less fortunate in our neighborhoods and throughout the world. We have three sister congregations through which we help homeless youth, street people, and Vietnamese immigrants.
We are members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and through their agencies we fight illiteracy, oppression, poverty and hunger. Locally we do much of the same through our membership in the Church Council of Greater Seattle.
In West Seattle we support two feeding services: Junction Foodbank, and the Emergency Feeding Program. We also support West Seattle Helpline which provides a wide variety of assistance for our neighbors in need.
