Our goal is to promote Christian benevolence and outreach, both through the Synod and other Christian bodies, as well as through direct support of local community charitable organizations, events and global mission.


  

Previous Global Activities

  • In 2012 and 2013 we helped raise funds for much needed building materials for Companeros Inc., who were actively rebuilding the barrios of Nicaragua. 
  • In 2011, we supported the "One Community" project which is offered by Canadian Lutheran World Relief. This year long project was a huge success for our small congregation.
     

Local Activities

  • We continue to support the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard throughout the year. This past Christmas we expanded our support to include Christmas gifts along with specialty Christmas food items.
  • We continue to support the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre with school supplies.
  • We have recently begun to monetarily support the Miriam Centre located in Orleans,
  • Throughout the year, various fun-filled activities are introduced to our congregation to raise awareness of a community organization or need.
     

Organization Awareness on the Web

  • The "12 Reasons to Care" webpage (now discontinued after 4 years), profiled a different organization monthly. Our hope was to educate and bring awareness to organizations who are striving to make a difference in the community and/or in the wider world.

Thank You

You may recall that recently the Outreach team held a Soup and Bread luncheon in support of the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard with FaithLife Financial matching all donations to a maximum of $500.

A team member of the Outreach team, had the pleasure of presenting a cheque today in the amount of $1260 to Gwen Bouchard, Executive Coordinator for the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard. Gwen stated that “the smile on my face (shown in the picture below) is a sincere smile of gratitude and joy”. The monies received will enable her to purchase meat for her clients, since she has now found a meat vendor.

Please continue to keep the Food Cupboard in mind when grocery shopping since Gwen’s client list is steadily growing in size. The food bin for food drop-offs is located in the Outreach corner in the church narthex. When the bin is full, a member will deliver it to the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard.

“I can’t believe it. Thank you so much Resurrection Lutheran Church for your generosity.”
