During September we will be supporting the Alma Hunt Offering for Virginia Missions and the Chaplain Service at Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women. Our goal is $4,000.
One Virginia ministry that receives support from this offering is LUCHA, which stands for Latinos Unidos por Cristo en Hermandad y Apoyo (in English, “Latinos United through Christ in Solidarity and Support”). Led by Greg and Sue Smith, who serve with and among Latinos in the greater Fredericksburg area, LUCHA Ministries provide a Christian response to the question of immigration and the needs of the immigrant community.
This Sunday, September 6, we will distribute several orange bags to be filled with groceries (list attached to bag). These bags will be taken to the CBFVA Assembly on Friday, September 18, where they will be given to LUCHA Ministries to be distributed to welcome some of our Virginia “neighbours.”
On Wednesday, September 9, we will have more orange bags to be filled with food items that have been purchased with mission money.
Donations to UBC will be welcome to offset the cost of these groceries.
