CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF IMPACT THROUGH
ELCA WORLD HUNGER IN 2024
Over the last 50 years, as we worked to transform the world through ELCA World Hunger, our church has been transformed. Together we have learned how hunger, poverty and other justice issues intersect. We have deepened our understanding of how baptism calls us to “strive for justice and peace in all the earth.” We have been strengthened in hope by the decline in hunger since we began this work. And we have nurtured relationships with local communities to ensure that the work we support will be sustainable, effective and authentic.
We have been part of this story — a story of faith in action, a story of hope, but most of all the story of a church set free for bold, abundant love and service, a church that responds, with creativity and courage, to God’s invitation to transform the world.
Join us and be part of the story of our next 50 years together — boldly and hopefully pursuing God’s promise of a just world where all are fed.
More specific ways to celebrate will be forthcoming from our New England Synod World Hunger Team!
