La Jolla Lutheran Church
9:30 a.m. Worship
We do quite a bit throughout the year to help the world and our community (and to have fun). We'd love to have you join us. Here are a few examples from the past year:
We help homeless guests get off the street. In February or March we help a dozen or more homeless people get off the street. Our guests include men, women and children (sometimes even infants) who are homeless but want to make a new start. They stay with us, have dinner and a place to sleep, and get breakfast in the morning. Then they head out to work or to look for work. We provide shelter for two weeks, then the guests go to another church in the Interfaith Shelter program. Guests can stay at shelters for up to two months, so they have a chance to save for rent. The program has a remarkable success rate, and we're glad to be able to participate.
Gifts to kids around the world. In November we pack shoeboxes full of gifts for children around the world who might not have otherwise gotten presents. Thank you to everyone who helps a child have a great Christmas.
La Jolla Christmas Parade. In December we participated in the La Jolla Christmas parade.
We had seven Groundbreaking Art Exhibits last year
Last year we had seven Groundbreaking Art Exhibits, with hundreds of great artworks from dozens of Southern California artists. We've shown paintings, drawings, ceramics, stained glass, and sculpture. You can see examples of the exhibits by following this link: Art Exhibit
Our Rummage Sales benefit veterans and their families
Each Rummage Sale we donate 90% or more of the proceeds to a worthy cause. Funds raised have helped wounded soldiers from Afghanistan and Iraq, provided shelter for abused women and children in San Diego, built two houses in Mexico for people who lacked adequate shelter and helped hungry families in San Diego.
