This Lent, ELCA World Hunger is extending a special invitation to congregations: Lift up the life-changing work of ELCA World Hunger through new levels of giving – spiritually, intellectually and financially – through ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving.

Beginning Sunday, Feb. 7, and extending through the season of Lent, congregations will join together to raise $2 million to benefit the ministries of ELCA World Hunger. This support will enable crucial work to get underway and help kick-start the year-of-emphasis within Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA.

New resources for Lent, including an exclusive 40-day devotional, and special Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day and leap-day ideas, are now available at

Participating congregations will receive:

  • Exclusive access to ELCA World Hunger’s 40-day Lenten devotional for congregations and members.
  • A six-week study guide suitable for Wednesday or Sunday Lenten worship or studies to accompany the 40-day devotional.
  • The opportunity to sign up for ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving daily e-blasts featuring the devotion-of-the-day throughout Lent.
  • A special certificate recognizing your efforts to help end hunger and poverty through ELCA World Hunger.
