"But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE." (I Corinthians 13:13)
How do YOU view Poverty?
Pastor Rob Bell says, There's a popular bumper sticker that reads "God Bless America," but hasn't America already been blessed? It's easy for us to fall into a mindset of viewing "our" world as "the" world, because it's all we generally see. But how does what we have compare to what most people in the world have? Maybe what we have is enough; maybe it's more than enough. Act Now!
What is the Interfaith Clothing Center?
Interfaith Clothing Center is one of the programs of Interfaith Works (IW), formerly Community Ministry of Montgomery County. Christ Lutheran is one of the IW's 150 member congregations.
At the Interfaith Clothing Center, donated clothing, household items, school supplies, infant items, toys and children's books are distributed free of charge to low-income residents of Montgomery County. By providing basic necessities free of charge, the clothing center enables its clients to use their scarce financial resources for other pressing needs, such as rent, food, transportation, and healthcare.
The Interfaith Clothing Center serves about 14,000 individuals every year. Clients come from all corners of the County and are young and old, male and female, single and married, and span all races and religions. They are working poor, homeless, disabled, immigrants, parolees, and seniors.
