ELCA World Hunger for Lent

This Lent, we invite you to focus your congregation’s Lenten activities by joining us during ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving. Together, we’ll experience how the grace of Christ moves us to engage in transformative works of love around the world through ELCA World Hunger as God calls us into the ministry of hope, liberation and restoration.
