Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) is driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Red Hill Lutheran Church and School join forces each year to package over 28,000 dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals that will help save lives in developing countries all around the world.
Red Hill has been partnering with Baja Christian Ministries to build homes for the in Tijuana for over 15 years. BCM is an organization dedicated to serving the spiritual and physical needs of the poor in Mexico in the name of Jesus Christ. Each year members of our Church and School build a home for a family in need in just one weekend. Housebuilding trips are scheduled every year sometime in April or May. For more information, contact Ken Hays.
The City of Angels Orphanage exists to meet the needs of some of the thousands of children living in extreme poverty in Tijuana, Mexico. The orphanage provides food, shelter, clothing, schooling, and – most important – love to the children. After severe flooding shut down the orphanage in early 2016, it recently re-opened its doors and brought in over 20 children to nurture. Red Hill organizes regular day trips to visit the orphanage, bring supplies, prepare lunch, and spend some time playing the kids. For more information, contact Jodi Sprosty.
Every Child Has a Name (ECHAN) addresses the concerns of orphans worldwide, and supports a wide spectrum of work. The five primary areas of focus spell the word STARS:
- Scholarships for adoption
- Training for children who age out of orphanages
- Aid for orphanages
- Rescue for children caught in trafficking
- Sponsorship of orphan tours
They also have a special relationship with Nightlight Christian Adoptions, who assist families with domestic, international, and embryo adoptions. Red Hill often hosts children on tour and provides volunteer and financial support as well. For more information, visit them at www.everychildhasaname.org.
Every Monday, several dedicated women meet at RHLC to quilt. They prepare and send quilts and layettes to Lutheran World Relief, who distributes them to the poorest parts of the world. Each quilt is a one of a kind beautiful gift of hope to those in need. Every year, this special group of ladies produce over 200 quilts! Call the church office for information about joining this group.
