Take Away Hunger

Take Away Hunger is a food packing service project that Christ the King does every year in November! The event happens in the Narthex in between services and involves all ages! We generally will assemble over 7000 meals in one hour. The funds that we use for the supplies is raised by donations from our congregation. Last year's food that we packed was shipped to Haiti!

Mission Quilts for LWR

Quilts are made and sent to Lutheran World Relief for distribution throughout the world for those in need.  The ultimate purpose of a Quilt is to provide warmth, an essential need for people in every climate. In addition to being a cozy, clean new bed cover, a quilt can be a baby carrier tied around a mother’s back, a market display spread on the ground and piled with vegetables, a sack for transporting goods to market, a sunshade, a shawl, and most importantly a constant reminder that someone far away cares a lot.
