The Metropolitan New York Synod’s World Hunger Committee invites you to attend
Sowing Seeds—Reaping the Harvest—Sharing Our Bread
Sat., Sept. 30, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church
Does it concern you that one in nine people across the globe struggle with hunger when the earth produces more than enough food to more than adequately feed the world’s population? Does it surprise you that 15% of Americans live in households that do not always know where their next meal will come from? Do you want to get involved in changing these facts? Do you want to get your congregation involved? The gathering on Sept. 30 will be an opportunity to earn about the root causes of hunger, hear about the work of ELCA World Hunger, examine resources to involve your congregation in addressing hunger, and share ideas about what congregations in our Synod are doing to fight hunger locally and globally.
- Iain Chester, ELCA World Hunger Engagement and Education Coordinator, will be our keynote presenter.
- Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided; sign-in and refreshments will begin at 9:30
If you cannot attend, please pass this invitation on to someone in your congregation who might be interested.
