Central City Churches

Central City Churches is an ecumenical collaboration of churches along Wisconsin Avenue that serve the material and spiritual needs of the older adults, families and people in need in our neighborhood. Gesu supports Central City Churches (Outreach Ministry and Food Pantry) with monetary contributions and volunteers. Gesu staff and parishioners serve on the board and on the Outreach Committee.

Central City Churches Outreach Ministry is located at Our Savior's Lutheran Church, 31st and Wisconsin, and offers neighbors assistance with basic needs, food and hygiene products. Neighbors are also assisted with job searches through the use of the phone, newspaper and computer job listings.Call CCC at 414-342-1522 or visit their website or Facebook page.

Interfaith Older Adult Programs

Many local congregations--including Gesu--have a history of involvement in Interfaith Older Adult Programs. Gesu parishioner Shannon Meagher has written a history of Interfaith for Older Adults.

Gesu is a founding member of Common Ground, a broad-based organization in Southeast Wisconsin, made up of congregations and religious groups affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church, Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), Presbyterian, Episcopal and United Church of Christ (UCC), and also certain foundations, individuals and unions. Common Ground exists to address Greater Milwaukee's critical social issues in an effective, non-partisan way and to achieve positive changes in our community. See their website for more information.
