WISEN Churches Donate to Three Kenosha Organizations

In August, our WISEN Churches responded to community violence and unrest in Kenosha by bringing worship to the city. We served by cleaning up some of the mess, praying and letting folks know they are loved, and serving free food to volunteers and passers by. Because of this needed outreach that we were able to provide, the Wisconsin Conference and Lake Union wanted to partner with our churches to provide further blessings in the City of Kenosha. Today, Pastor George and Pastor Zack were able to go out and bless three excellent Kenosha organizations with funds so they can continue the good work they do in our community. View pictures and read about these organizations below.

Frank Neighborhood Project: The Kenosha YMCA, Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department, and the Frank Elementary School have partnered to strengthen families through programs and activities that are designed to provide help and hope to Kenosha’s inner-city families who are exceptionally challenged by a lack of economic opportunities and fatherless homes.




Shalom Center of the Interfaith Network: Their mission is to serve the community by providing emergency food, shelter, and support in ways that meet immediate needs and respect human dignity. Through food, shelter, and guidance, they help people maximize their potential for self-sufficiency.




ELCA Outreach Center: They show God’s Love by addressing the needs of children, youth, and adults through programs and services that encourage them to become self-sufficient, caring and participating members of the community.





God is doing great things in our area, even during such times or turmoil as these. Blessed be the name of the Lord!
