Peace has a long history of partnering with various local, national, and international ministries through our Mission of the Month special offering, fundraising projects, and regular collection of supplies.
Some of our core partners include the Stanwood/Camano and Arlington Food banks, the Gathering Place weekly meal program, Housing Hope, and Lutheran World Relief.
We also regularly make our facilities available to local groups such at 4-H, Alcoholics Anonymous, AL-Anon, Pills Anonymous, local community boards, and the annual Silvana Fair.
The Mission of the Month for November is:
Lutheran World Relief
LWR is a nonprofit organization that helps families in the world’s poorest communities build the resilience they need to thrive. They are an organization that helps people in crisis and stays around to enhance their recovery.
Lutheran World Relief works in three major areas: Agricultural Development, Climate Adaptation and Mitigation, and Emergency Operations. Their projects include: helping people deal with climate changes by developing sustainable agricultural practices; helping people make economic choices that sustain their community; and helping to make people in crisis more comfortable until they can begin to rebuild.
Our annual assembly of school kits, health kits, baby layettes and quilts are part of the international ministry of Lutheran World Relief. Distributing quilts and kits assembled by Lutheran congregations is one of the many ways that LWR supports those in need in countries around the globe.
