Make a Difference


In addition to our local interests, we support many national causes, including the following:

  • Bike & Build is an organization that send groups of people on cross-country biking trips to build affordable housing. We support their effort by hosting the bikers while they are in Athens and giving to their cause.
  • Relay for Life is a life-changing event by the American Cancer Society that celebrates the lives of people who have battled cancer, remembers loved ones lost, and fights back against the disease. We send a team to this event every year to join the fight.
  • Lutheran Services in America coordinates the work of nearly 300 independent Lutheran health and human service organizations.
  • Lutheran Disaster Response brings together the energy and efforts of Lutherans to respond to natural and human-caused disasters in the US and its territories.
  • In partnership with 10,000 other ELCA congregations, we suport 9 seminaries and 15 colleges across the US.
