Emergency Fund

The Emergency Outreach Program is designed to help low-income and homeless people with the “little things” they may need to get by:  help with local transportation (gas vouchers and bus tickets), help with forms of identification (birth certificates and drivers’ licenses), help with prescription medication, and other medical needs, help with moving costs, help with storage fees, help with child-care-related needs, help with automotive needs, help with out-of-town travel, etc.


We follow the general flow of the Christian liturgical tradition: starting with an opening time to prepare our hearts in confession, a call to worship, or a remembrance of baptism. Song and prayer is followed by the reading of the readings assigned for the day. After a reflection and silence for contemplation, the response to the readings is marked by the sharing of an ancient creed, offerings, and prayers. The Christian meal remembers the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. And then we take our leave with a time for benediction.


Music and hymns are chosen to reflect the themes developed in the readings from the Bible. As a member congregation of the ELCA, these are assigned each Sunday by the Revised Common Lectionary. The lectionary is a set of assigned readings used by many denominations, including Lutherans, for public reading each week during worship. Each week in worship we read one lesson from the Hebrew Scriptures, one lesson from the letters of the New Testament, and one lesson from the Gospel stories of the life of Jesus. The readings often follow a sequential pattern. Sometimes the readings reflect the season of the church year such as Easter or Christmas. Often the reading from the Hebrew Scripture and the reading from the Gospel story of the life of Jesus have a similar theme.
