An active faith seeks God in world, in the neighbor, in the poor. We have three local ministries we connect to, in addition to supporting the larger church.
HEALTHY START/UPLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT
Healthy Start is an office in the school district that supports families in need, including the hundreds of children in Upland classified as homeless each year. In partnership with Upland Kiwanis, we distribute food bags each week to help hungry families on the weekend. We also distribute socks in winter and other special collections throughout the year.
For the summer months, we collect hygiene items and new blankets for the homeless in Ontario (and the surrounding cities). The third Friday of the month we go to First Lutheran in Ontario and distribute items we’ve collected.
CENTRAL CITY LUTHERAN MISSION (CCLM)
Found in San Bernardino, CCLM is a mission with a diverse array of services. Our main support is through food preparation and special emphases throughout the year.
We also are the main distributor for Toys for Tots in this area.
