The Food Bank
New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church Community Food Bank for the Hellertown Area Ministerium (HAM). Volunteers are always welcome to assist with unloading the truck and its distribution. We continue to use a “shopping” system on Saturday mornings to have clients pick their own groceries. We can use help to staff the various grocery stations and to help clients show.
The Center for Progressive Christianity
The mission of The Center for Progressive Christianity is to reach out to those for whom organized religion has proved ineffectual, irrelevant, or repressive, as well as to those who have given up on or are unacquainted with it. To uphold evangelism as an agent of justice and peace. To give a strong voice both in the churches and the public arena to the advocates of progressive Christianity. To support those who embrace the search, not certainty.
