Lutheran Social Services (LSS)

Serve Those in Need with LSS 
Serve those in need by filling orders for non-perishable food items at Lutheran Social Services Food Pantry. LSS is dedicated to “creating a better world by serving people in need.” Volunteers help shoppers select food items, make Christian material available, and look for opportunities to pray with shoppers. May 6, 11:30 am- 2:30 pm, 1430 Champion Avenue. Contact Chris Burger by calling the church, 614-451-3736, or by searching for people on MyUALC.
 
Christian Materials Needed 
UALC has a parallel ministry at the Lutheran Social Services (LSS) Food Pantries where books and Christian materials are distributed to the shoppers. UALC members have been very generous by donating new or used materials. We now have a specific need for large print Bibles, children’s Bibles, coloring or drawing books, and crayons. Drop off in bins in exchange centers at Lytham Road and Mill Run.  
 

Clothes Closet 

“Folding Clothes to the Glory of  God to people in need everywhere!” What we take? Gently used, clean clothes, coats, shoes, accessories, and linens. Donate items or volunteer to sort clothes. Contact Cathy Shaw, ceshaw59@gmail.com.
