2019 VBS CURRICULM: WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?
It’s never too early to start daydreaming of summer! Get started by exploring ELCA World Hunger’s new vacation Bible school curriculum for 2019, “Who is My Neighbor?” This free resource is now available to order and download. The curriculum invites children and youth to reimagine what it means to be neighbors in Christ. Based on the Good Samaritan story, this full five-day program contains skits, games, crafts, snacks and activities for participants to enjoy and learn how our faith calls us into the world to love and serve our neighbor.

HUNGER AND POVERTY BY THE NUMBERS
With so much information out there, it can be difficult to know the most accurate statistics for measuring hunger and poverty. But knowing the data about what is happening can go a long way to helping us talk about the issues accurately and craft effective, forward-looking responses.

Check out ELCA World Hunger’s new blog post that compiles the data and shares important information about hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world.
