Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota (LSS) has recognized Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Minneapolis as the 2021 Servant of Christ Award winner for the Minneapolis Area Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
The Servant of Christ Award honors congregations that are leaders in social service outreach or have come forward with extraordinary service to address special needs in their community. The award is extended to one or more congregations in each of the six Minnesota synods of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
Lutheran Social Service is recognizing Holy Trinity Lutheran Church for its outreach to the community during the unrest that followed the death of George Floyd, including emergency first aid and ongoing food support. Holy Trinity organized pop-up food distribution sites and served as a safe zone for volunteer emergency chaplains, clean-up crews and a distributor of financial support from other congregations.
