Thirteen years ago at First Lutheran Church, we adopted a mission question..."Does Love Live Here?" Having a question means that we always have to go back to it and wrestle with it to make sure it is still true. This journey has taken us down the road of wellness and so The Love Grows Here Wellness Center was born, Ministering Angels Closet joined our efforts, and the Listening House is now housed in our sanctuary building providing sanctuary for those experiencing poverty. If you have questions or would like to volunteer or would like to know more, contact Pastor Chris Olson Bingea, 651-247-8926 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Listening House is a sanctuary from the streets where practical assistance, counsel and a friendly ear are offered to people who are homeless, disadvantaged or lonely. Staff and volunteers aspire to create a sense of community and connection by promoting respect for all.
They have recently moved to First Lutheran at 464 Maria Ave. and are open Monday - Friday (check for hours).
The mission of Ministering Angels is to provide clothing and household items to individuals and families who cannot otherwise afford it.
Ministering Angels offers those who receive our services an opportunity to receive clothing, select household items, and books free of charge.
The items donated to Ministering Angels will come from the community, friends, family, and any others who would like to donate items. To donate, use the contact page at www.eastsidefirst.com
