Past Mission Minutes

Because our believing affects our living, we are committed to making God’s love and justice known in Lakeview and beyond. We partner with a number of ministries locally and globally – both through giving of financial resources and giving of volunteer time. We see ourselves as people of faith who have both the privilege and responsibility to speak for those whose voices are marginalized, so we seek to be a prophetic voice in matters of justice – especially for those living in poverty, violence, or those who are victims of the “isms” of our society (heterosexism & homophobia; racism; sexism; able-ism; ageism; etc.). We see ourselves as people faith who are also meant to partner with God in easing suffering – so we pray that we do that in our efforts to help serve a meal at Lakeview Shelter, to provide a Safe Haven for homeless GLBTQ youth, or by hosting Recovery groups in our space.  In addition, each month Broadway collects donations for a specific organization.

MISSION MINUTES

Global AIDS Fund

 

Combatting HIV/AIDS globally through prevention, treatment, support and capacity development.  Yes, there has been an overall decrease in number of people with AIDS and HIV here in US, but that fact doesn’t tell the full story for all populations in the US or around the world! NIC Advance Orange 982345.

 

Heifer International

 

Heifer’s mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth. Dan West was a farmer from the American Midwest and member of the Church of the Brethren who went to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War as an aid worker. His mission was to provide relief, but he soon discovered the meager single cup of milk rationed to the weary refugees once a day was not enough. And then he had a thought: What if they had not a cup, but a cow? That “teach a man to fish” philosophy is what drove West to found Heifer International. And now, nearly 70 years later, that philosophy still inspires our work to end world hunger and poverty throughout the world once and for all.
