Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is made up of nearly 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. By joining together with the other congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we at Good Shepherd increase our ministry exponentially -- assisting congregations; working together with other organizations, ministries, and partners; and linking with the global church. Learn more about the ELCA.
In addition to ongoing financial support and participation in its programs and ministries, we answer God’s call to feed the hungry, comfort and assist those who find themselves in desperate situations, and offer basic, life-giving assistance to people across the globe.
ELCA World Hunger
As members of the ELCA, we are called to respond to the needs of our world. Supported by congregations, ELCA World Hunger reaches out to communities in need. From health clinics to microloans, water wells to animal husbandry, community meals to advocacy, ELCA World Hunger supports sustainable solutions that get at the root causes of hunger and poverty. Learn more about ELCA World Hunger. You can contribute through the ELCA website or directly through Good Shepherd.
Lutheran Disaster Response brings God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by disasters in the United States and around the world. When the dust settles and the headlines change, we stay to provide ongoing assistance to those in need. Learn more about ELCA Disaster Response.
