Under our Stories of Faith tab, you'll find links to publications that are committed to telling the story of how Lutherans do God's work with their hands.

Hunger Walk Brings Lutheran Churches Around Metro Atlanta Together

Despite the gloomy weather, we had a fantastic turnout for the 2018 Hunger Walk on February 25 at the Georgia State Stadium. Churches from all over the metro area, from Lawrenceville and Marietta to McDonough and Carrollton, came together to help fight hunger in Georgia.  The light rain didn't keep the teams from gathering at the LSG tent for photos and fun, and we were blessed with a rain-free walk through Grant Park.
