Damiano Meal Prep/Serving opportunity! For many years, the LCGS congregation has supported the Community Kitchen at the Damiano Center through the Hunger Team mission focus. Although homelessness and hunger have long been issues in our area, recent challenges to social safety net services have made the needs more dire.

Our serving efforts are broken up into two sessions, a meal preparation session, when food is prepared for that evening's meal and other future meals, and a serving session, where meals are put on trays and served to community kitchen diners. Both sessions are necessary and meaningful. There is nothing keeping someone from working both shifts, if their schedule allows. There will be a break period between the shifts and usually a snack around.  servers must be 16years and older. Sign up by clicking on the date below.

Next dates are:   March 17

Land Acknowledgement 

Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd's property rests on ceded territory established by the Treaties of 1837, 1854, 1855, and 1866 between the Anishinaabe/Ojibwe Nations and the United States government. This region is the traditional homelands of the Ojibwe, Dakota, Northern Cheyenne, and other Native nations. We humbly acknowledge that we are on traditional Indigenous land. The NE MN Synod of the ELCA is actively building mutual respect based on trust and understanding.

At Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Duluth, MN, we believe that our purpose is to make disciples of all nations by going, teaching and baptizing.  Jesus' Great Commission inspires our Mission Statement:

We are a Community of Christ

experiencing God,

reaching out,

nurturing faith.
