“Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” Matthew 25: 37-40

Just as these words were written and have been read for centuries we here at Reformation have read and listened to these words.  We live and work these words by the ministries we have here at Reformation:  The Community Clothes Closet, The Reformation Community Food Pantry, working with the Meal at Noon Program, the Brown Bag Lunch Program, and providing meals for the homeless housed at local churches through the Family Promise of Monmouth County Program.  In addition, through the greater ELCA church we support World Hunger, the ELCA Barnyard Project, the Church World Relief programs, the Church World Services programs, the Lutheran Disaster Relief programs and Bread for the World program.

Through Social Ministry we also advocate for the homeless, the hungry and all social justice issues.
