Social Ministry extends Christian compassion and concern for the community by making the congregation aware of issues relating to disadvantaged people, social injustice, and environmental degradation. Social Ministry works in concert with:
Denbigh United Christian Outreach (DUCO) that offers emergency food, financial assistance, job placement, and emotional and spiritual support
Food Bank which provides food to people who might otherwise go hungry. Established in 1986, the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank has been the leading hunger relief organization across the Greater Peninsula serving the 1 in 7 Virginians who struggle with hunger in the Cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and Williamsburg, and the Counties of Gloucester, James City, Mathews, Surry and York.
Menchville House that provides shelter for women in transition, offering long term shelter (6-18 months) and resources to rebuild self-esteem, live independently, and to contribute to their community.
Lutheran World Relief that seeks lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. Back to Ministriesc
