The Community Ministry Teams seek to provide opportunities for members to engage in activities with the purpose of helping people in need within our community and the world. These activities are as close to home as North Fulton Community Charities and North Central Georgia Affiliate of the Habitat for Humanity and as far reaching as Lutheran World Relief. We provide opportunities to serve that fit into members’ time, talent, and financial abilities.

Our Bread Runners pick up bakery items from two Publix stores on Mondays and one Publix store on Saturdays. We deliver these items locally to North Fulton Community Charities.
Each year at Christmas we provide gifts for children whose names are provided by the prison chaplains with the Prison Ministry Program. These children receive a gift labeled from their parent who is in prison. In addition, we also purchase gifts and deliver to the North Fulton Community Charities.
Atlanta Hunger Walk
Our church continues to be one of the top fund raising churches among the 60 Lutheran Churches walking in the event. These funds are used by the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Lutheran Services of Georgia.
Family Haven Women’s Shelter
Family Haven provides emergency shelter, crisis intervention and comprehensive support services for victims of domestic violence. Household items, clothing and toys that are brought to church are taken to the Family Haven Thrift Store on an on-going basis to provide support to the local shelter.
Habitat for Humanity
Through a cooperative effort of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat for Humanity and the North Central Georgia and Cobb County Habitat for Humanity Affiliates, we build at least one home yearly. We work on homes and provide meals for the workers.
Lutheran World Relief
Lutheran World Relief works to help people grow food, improve health, strengthen communities, end conflict, build livelihoods and recover from disaster. We support the world-wide relief efforts of our larger church body through publicity and monetary donations. Through fund raising at the 10,000 Villages Store at the Avenue Forsyth we contribute farm animals through the ELCA Good Gifts program.
Lutheran Services of Georgia
We have supported Lutheran Services of Georgia (LSG) through the annual Golf Tournament, Lutheran Night at the Braves and Lutheran Night at the Gladiators. We also donate items to refugee resettlement programs and local disaster response teams.
North Fulton Community Charities
The food collection cart for NFCC has a permanent place in the fellowship hall and is delivered on a weekly basis to North Fulton Community Charities. Financial donations may also be made to assist families for utilities, rent and other emergency items. NFCC accepts donations on-line at www.nfcchelp.org.
Lutheran Community Food Ministry
We are a part of a mission to field a team of congregants to work at the Redeemer Lutheran Community Food Kitchen in downtown Atlanta. On the first Tuesday of each month we send one of two teams to Redeemer and fulfill that mission.
