Honduras Mission Team: Support of the Lamb Institute


Holy Spirit supports the Lamb Institute, a Christ-centered, multifaceted ministry based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras that seeks to reach out to the world with the love of Jesus Christ. LAMB was founded in 1999 by lifelong missionary, Suzy McCall, as a training school for Hondurans called to world mission. Today, LAMB operates an elementary school with over 200 children in one of the most violent and poverty stricken areas of Tegucigalpa, a large youth outreach program, a growing microcredit program with over 300 small business owners, multiple community programs, and a residential home outside the city for over 60 abused and neglected children.

Holy Spirit support Lamb Institute in multiple ways, including prayer, financial support, and an annual summer mission trip to serve the children who are cared for by the Lamb Institute in Honduras. These trips are intergenerational, for both the young and young-at-heart (rising high schoolers and up!).

For general information, see their website at: www.lambinstitute.org.

Episcopal Community Foundation Support for our Pantry Ministry

The ECF has approved a grant of $4,990 for the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit as a part
of their 2018 Small Acts of Charity. The purpose of this grant is to directly support operating expenses for Wendy’s Place Pantry Ministry. ECF was impressed with the meaningful outreach opportunity that Wendy’s Place Pantry Ministry provides for our parish.

How We Can Serve the Poor and Oppressed, and ECOHS, Through Legacy Giving


When/Where: Sunday, May 6th at 9:30 am

The Episcopal Community Foundation for Middle and North Georgia will lead an informational session on the spiritual and material importance of supporting the poor and oppressed through legacy giving. Join us to learn how Episcopalians in our parish and around the Diocese are caring for the least among us as well as providing ongoing sustainability for ECOHS for many years to come.

Many in our Diocese are familiar with the grants that ECF provides to parishes and their nonprofit Partners, such as the “Small Acts of Charity” grant of $4,990 that the ECF awarded us to support the work of the Wendy’s Place Pantry Ministry. At this presentation, we will have a chance to learn more about how ECF is able to not only continue this work, but also help ECOHS continue our good work in the future through legacy giving, which includes bequests, gifts of assets and appreciated securities, gifts from tax-deferred funds such as IRAs, life income gifts, and more.

Everyone needs an estate strategy, and estates of every size can make a lasting contribution to help the church continue loving like Jesus.
