Jean Kelly, executive director of the Interfaith Nutrition Network kicks off the Church of Our Saviour, Lutheran’s Lenten “Sacrifice and Serve” speaker series.
As part of the Sunday 10 a.m. worship experience throughout Lent a special guest exemplifies the Lenten call to “Sacrifice and Serve,” providing opportunities to learn of those caring for others, and to lift them up in prayer for their service, and be inspired to consider personal opportunities to serve God in similar means of thanksgiving.
Kelly shared touching stories about how their services have positively impacted the lives of the guests the INN serves. The mission of The INN is to address the issues of hunger and homelessness on Long Island by providing food, shelter, long-term housing and supportive services in a dignified and respectful manner for those who seek the organization’s help.
