“There’s a wideness in God’s mercy,
Like the wideness of the sea;
There’s a kindness in His justice,
Which transfigures you and me.”

OUR Special Thanks to those of you who shared part of your COVID STIMULUS CHECK(S) to support the work of L&F Ministries during this pandemic.

Your mercy is indeed “wider than the sea”!

Our humble GRATITUDE as well to ALL of you who shared your hard-earned savings during this ongoing CHALLENGING COVID CRISIS! If there is anything we have learned in the past 40+ years since opening Loaves and Fishes Ministries, it is that “it truly takes a village” to care compassionately and adequately for the thousands of people experiencing homelessness who have graced our shelter. All of us are deeply moved by the generous caring and giving that continues to come from our greater Lansing and country-wide community. Whether you gave a $1, $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $500, $1000…or several thousand, ALL are precious gifts that continue to make this critical work possible! Going forward, we look forward to your continued partnering with us in offering the essential services we provide to our sisters and brothers, who would otherwise be living on the streets or under the bridges. The social justice ethic of caring for our neighbors is what L&F Ministries was founded on over 40 years ago. Jesus said, “Feed the hungry, shelter the homeless.” We heard that then and continue to hear that now. Our mantra during this pandemic has become: “Lord, lead us where we need to be.” And we humbly thank ALL of YOU for helping us get there!

 Special Recognition to our Business, Civic and Religious Communities who have partnered in service with L&F over the years
