We’re asking for your support as we enter this holiday season with a challenge to raise $50,000 to fund the work of Outreach for Hope.
This season’s holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas are naturally times which remind us of the importance of reflecting on the goodness and blessings in our current lives. Being people of faith helps us recognize that we have been blessed to be a blessing to others – understanding the goodness we receive is not meant to be hoarded, but to be shared so others may also know blessings in their lives.
During this season of reflection, we also realize that so many in our communities continue to struggle due to poverty. Over 40,000 adults and children go to bed hungry every night in the Milwaukee area — about enough to fill every seat at American Family Field.
Our Ministry Partners serve these people by…
- Providing food and clothes daily to families in need, helping them to ‘make ends meet.’
- Performing wellness and dental exams through free medical services.
- Nurturing children in after-school and summer programs.
- Bringing inmates hope through weekly worship and fellowship in prison.
- Supporting parents by keeping babies safe through education and free supplies.
- Bringing dignity and courage to people struggling to remain free of drugs and alcohol.
As you prepare to celebrate the gift God gave to us this Christmas season – the gift of love, grace, and hope in Jesus – we pray that you would partner with us by sharing an additional monetary gift with those in need – an ‘extra mile’ gift!
Will you help us raise $50,000 to fund the work of Outreach for Hope in Greater Milwaukee Synod central city congregations in 2022 and beyond?
100% of your donation to Outreach for Hope goes directly to grants to support services for people in need.
Thank you for supporting Outreach for Hope in our mutual work of ministry, as we walk with our Ministry Partners who serve people who need to know of God’s love, grace, and goodness at Christmas time and always. And may God bless you and yours this season as well!
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me…Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.“– Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 25
