Welcome Home

Welcome Home is a ministry of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and Lutheran Children and Family Service. The mission of Welcome Home is to help refugees get settled and feel welcome when they arrive in Philadelphia. We do this by greeting them at the airport and bringing them to the Welcome Home house in the Lawncrest neighborhood of Philadelphia.  Our new friends will stay in Welcome Home for a few weeks until they are more familiar with American culture.  Our goal is to make refugee resettlement successful by helping with each step until the families are able to manage on their own.

Interfaith Hospitality Network is committed to helping homeless families in our community to achieve lasting independence. We began serving families in Northeast Philadelphia in 2012 with the help of Faith Lutheran Church. Our goal is to provide the programs and services necessary to address the underlying causes of homelessness and to return our client families to a self-sustaining life.

NORTH EAST WEST CONFERENCE

Shine in the love of God's grace, every day.
At North East West Conference of Lutheran Churches, it's our mission to help you explore your relationship with God and improve those meaningful relationships in your family life. 

Prayer Ministry
Prayer is a powerful way that we build community.  In 2012, we started praying for a different group in the conference every month, and we asked that each congregation remember this congregation during the prayers of the people each Sunday morning.  In this way we pray together for our brothers and sisters in the conference each week.
