Alaska Prays

On June 17th, the ELCA commemorated the martyrdom of the Emanuel 9—the nine people shot and killed on June 17, 2015, during a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C.  The Alaska Synod took this opportunity to spend 24 hours in prayer – an opportunity to reflect and pray for our communities and nation.  RLC participated by taking two, one-hour periods.

Watch our one-hour vigil from 4:00 to 5:00 pm held on Wednesday, June 17th in the Sanctuary.

Watch Pastor Karen taking the 4:00 to 5:00 am shift on Thursday, June 18th.

RLC Food Panty

Open Mondays (except holidays) noon to 4:30, or until the food is gone. We often have less selection after the first hour. Sadly, a line starts forming around 11:00 am.

Click here for more information.



The RLC Food Pantry is open on Mondays and is still allowing patrons to make food selections (rather than providing pre-bagged food).  We have adapted by giving out numbers, so our patrons will not have to stand in a line, and we have them come into the food pantry in small groups – to allow social distancing.

See the Food Banks Adapt to Coronavirus article  in the Juneau Empire quoting our own Pastor Karen Perkins.


Donations are Always Welcome

We are Juneau’s largest food pantry serving over 200 Individuals and families each week, and accept donations of packaged food – protein (meats, beans, etc.) is especially welcome.  Easiest to donate on Mondays from 10 to  4.  However, call the church at (907) 586-2380 to arrange other times.  We also accept donations of your time.  Contact the church at And, of course, monetary donations are also appreciated:
