In the face of the Ebola outbreak, several hundred Africans and Americans from several faith traditions gathered Sunday at St. Matthew's Lutheran in Springfield to pray, console each other, and build bridges of hope rather than barriers of fear. Medical supplies, sanitizers, food and more than $3,000 were collected.
"We gather...to bring comfort and hope to a community that worries and frets," Bishop Claire Burkat said in her sermon. "Our time here together...is a powerful reminder that we will not be chased away from our God by despair and fear."

Upper Dublin Lutheran Church is committed to be a blessing to our community. The blessing happens when people find ways to care for others. We support active ministries that utilize the gifts we are given by God to serve others.
We are blessed to have such active and giving members! We devote our time and our God given talents to ministries that help people here and around the world. We give of ourselves with such joy and passion, whether it be preparing and serving food for Chosen 300, teaching Sunday School, knitting prayer shawls or rebuilding homes with the Appalachian Service Project team! Thanks be to God for giving us the opportunity to be good stewards of all he has given us.
In 2005, we began an amazing relationship with our Lutheran brothers and sisters in Tanzania's Northeastern Diocese. This summer we will make our fourth trip to visit their evangelism outposts in the mountains of Lushoto, and developed a scholarship program for high school students. Tanzanian hospitality, generosity and contagious Christian music draws us back and feeds our faith!
