Care and Share

No doubt if you have attended worship @FJLC you have heard the term, "Care and Share."  Every time we gather in worship, we are blessed by God's abundant gifts.  In turn, we desire to share those blessings in tangible ways in the community we serve.

The Care and Share offering is a way to accomplish that goal.  Together we come and give a portion of the blessings that God has given us back to doing God's good work in the community among the least and the lost.  The Care and Share offering is used to bless agencies whose mission it is to alleviate suffering in our community in all of its forms. 

Our goal is to serve the community in the name of Jesus in alignment with the biblical teaching of Matthew 25:31-46(the sheep and the goats) and follow the Lord's teaching "‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’"

Additionally, we make contributions to the ELCA Disaster Response Fund  and the ELCA World Hunger fundto share with those around the globe and nation our love & support during times of need.
