Micah 6:8 calls us, as Christians, to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God. The Lutheran World Relief (LWR) Fair Trade Coffee Project helps us answer that call by righting the injustices faced by small-scale farmers around the world.
Coffee is big business – it’s one of the most heavily traded commodities in the world. But for the majority of small-scale coffee farmers, the benefits are few. The LWR Fair Trade Coffee Project ensures that more of the money you spend on coffee reaches the farmers who actually grow it. Fair trade coffee is a simple solution that means the difference – quite literally – between surviving and not surviving for small-scale coffee farmers.
Christ the King is a Fair Trade Coffee church! At all of our fellowship events and throughout the week we serve fairly traded coffee. By doing this we are helping farmers earn the income they need to feed their families, educate their children, seek medical care and improve their communities.
Fair Trade products, including coffee, tea and chocolate, are for sale every week in the Entrance Way.
