Building peace and working for justice is central to our calling as God’s people. This gets carried out in many ways at Augustana, including a monthly free community breakfast, partnership with Lutheran Social Services of Illinois, advocacy work, community work days, and hosting community groups in our building.
Augustana and its members are leading a project sponsoring two refugee families in Hyde Park. These families have just arrived and are fleeing the civil war and violence in Syria. For more information about the project, see this news article.
