Jesus, they're working together!
Seeds of Peace (SOP) Madison is an ecumenical collaboration of eight east-side and Monona churches who are working together to alleviate suffering, injustice, and poverty in our communities. SOP partners with three area elementary schools to provide weekend take-home meals for students who receive free lunch during the school week. Far too many area families experience significant food insecurities. Over 300 kids benefit each week from these programs at Henry Schenk Elementary, Frank Allis Elementary, and Nuestro Mundo Community School. Other programs that SOP supports are the Atwood Personal Essetioanls Pantry, Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross Blood Drives, School Passport Fairs, and St. Stephens Food Pantry. Participating churches include Monona United Methodist, St. Stephens Lutheran, Zion Faith Community, Plymouth UCC, Lake Edge UCC, St. Luke's Episcopal, Lake Edge Lutheran, and Lakeview Moravian Community Church.
