Love In Action
Love In Action
As people of faith, we are called by God to pray and work together for the SHALOM of our nation's most vulnerable communities. We see flourishing communities where all children and families are safe and supported to realize their dreams and aspirations.
Our mission is to create a safe, thriving community for children, youth, and families in St. Claude and surrounding neighborhoods.
What We Do
We work through individuals, organizations, and faith communities to implement strategies that reduce violence, increase academic achievement, and provide economic opportunities for all. We start by listening to understand the internal and external barriers our communities face. This means being present and building relationships before providing programs and solutions. In our community, it is adopting a local school, providing summer employment for youth, offering parental education to fathers, and training for churches and leaders in anti-racism principles.
Partner With Us
We do what we do on the foundation of our Christ-centered values that express
God’s Love in Action.
When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.
