Is your worshiping community doing a back-to-school backpack give away? If so, please consider placing flyers in the backpack to remind parents that to keep their child on Medicaid they must re-enroll. Thousands of Georgians have already lost their Medicaid healthcare coverage—perhaps because they didn’t know. Please contact the Georgia Interfaith Public Policy Center (gippc.org) to get pdfs of flyers from the state of Georgia in English and in Spanish to place in the backpacks
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, saddened by the all-too-frequent occurrences of gun violence in the U.S., invites you on a journey of prayer, scripture, stories, and church teachings with this resource, A 60-Day Journey Towards Justice in a Culture of Gun Violence - an ELCA Resource Through daily observances, it calls us to work toward the prevention of gun violence as people of God who strive for justice and peace in all the world. It may be used for individual reflection, group Bible study, adult education sessions, and congregational daily devotions. This began on June 16 but can be used at any time.
