 The food bank in Lake City and their resource counseling arm, the North Helpline, work with us in several ways.
Our Lake City Holiday Project signs up families in need through the North Helpline in Decembers. Their retail pickup/delivery contact Jane H delivers food donations to our Maple Leaf SHARE shelter several times  a month.  Lastly, our collection bin full of food located as you enter at worship  time, goes to their distribution system when delivered. Thank you for supporting our collective efforts.

Earth Ministry PDF Print E-mail
Written by Julie Blum   

 Maple Leaf Lutheran Church has joined hands with Earth Ministry http://earthministry.org/ to connect Christian faith with care for the Earth.  Composed of over 1,400 individuals and congregations, together we believe the National Council of Churches' declaration that "addressing the degradation of this sacred Earth is the moral assignment of our time."

As a Greening Congregation, it is our mission to foster awareness of environmental issues as well as engaging members of our congregation in meaningful creation care activities in the larger community.

Garden for our SHARE homeless shelter PDF Print E-mail
Written by Julie Blum   

We have been a host site for a SHARE homeless shelter since 1996. About 20 residents come in at 9:00 pm every night of the year. They sleep in the community hall of the church and then leave at 8:00 am. Recently we planted a garden for the residents to harvest from.  We also take some of the produce to North Helpline Foodbank.  We are hoping in the future to make even more raised beds and plant more produce. Here's some photos from the garden. Thanks to Elizabeth A for the photos.
