Milwaukee is one of the poorest cities in the nation, and over 40% of children in Milwaukee live in poverty. Our ministry in the city seeks to respond to our neighbors in need by working with those who are already caring for the city. We have developed a wide network of ELCA congregations and ministry sites that we serve alongside to meet the needs of the people.
Much of our work in Milwaukee is focused on hunger and children, but we are committed to meeting whatever needs our friends and local leaders identify. Of course, we still have time to enjoy this beautiful lake city and its unique local gems like a local brewery and the Harley-Davidson Museum.
What an amazing trip to Milwaukee. Our slideshow below contains pictures from our week. These pictures include our mission sites as well as evening activities. Our mission sites were as follows:
Evening Activities included: Bounce Milwaukee, Dinner at Safe House restaurant, lots of games of spoons and a movie and ice cream bar.
Music City USA overflows with culture and opportunities to serve the needy. Your service in Nashville will not only serve those locally, but all over the world through our work with Soles4Souls. You will bless others through your work at food banks, refugee ministries, and children’s centers.
Of course, no trip to Nashville would be complete without live music and a stroll down Broadway. This week is concluded with a night at a local lake and a moving outdoor worship service.
