We value being in partnership with local organizations that are doing great things. In addition to these three, BLC also supports a number of local non-profits through financial contributions and/or volunteering.
El Camino de Emaús Lutheran Church
Rooted in the Latinx community, El Camino de Emaús Lutheran Church is a multicultural expression of God’s love and grace changing lives and empowering the poor in the Skagit Valley. They proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ through praise, prayer, service, and reflective bible engagement, and welcome all at communion regardless of marital, socioeconomic, immigration or other status. Service in Spanish.
One Parish One Prisoner
One Parish One Prisoner (OPOP) seeks to equip parishes—faith communities small or large, traditional or rag-tag—in every American town to build supportive pre-release relationships with just one person returning to their community from prison.
Supporting houseless families by building communities and strengthening lives. Family Promise does this by adapting and building gaps in service based on the needs of Skagit Valley. This is made possible through a team approach with local churches, community members and businesses networking together. Burlington Lutheran hosts families four times a year.
