Shop, Cook, Serve: Listen is beginning to organize volunteers to shop, cook and serve the Community Dinners. In the past, OSLC, has done this 6 times per year. Those teams have been faithful servants for several years. If you are interested in becoming part of one of these teams on a regular basis or to serve as a sub now and then, please contact Shelia Cardamone. This is all very preliminary and we don’t know when or how these dinners will take place in the future. We do know the need is there now more than ever. Working on a team is a very fulfilling experience- try it. No experience or particular cooking skills necessary.

Advocate for Others: As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. God uses our hands, through our direct service work and our voices, through our advocacy efforts, to restore and reconcile our world. Through faithful advocacy, the ELCA lives out our Lutheran belief that governments can help advance the common good. The latest issues of ELCA Advocacy Connections with Four Action Alerts can be read here.
