Prayer allows us to have conversation with God and to feel God’s presence surround us.
Prayer gives us moments in our day to share with God our praise, our frustrations, and our concerns. Frequent prayer helps us to keep connected with God as the focus of our lives. The prayer chain at Lord of Love is a service to all of our members. Please contact Mary Lou (402-493-2946) with your prayer requests or to become a member of the prayer chain.

The Love Letter is available online!
Our monthly congregation newsletter, the Love Letter, is posted online at the beginning of each month and allows you to stay informed on the ministries, programs, and activities of our congregation.  See the News and Events section of our site for each monthly issue.

Saved Through Faith
Martin Luther struggled with the church’s teaching that he earned his forgiveness of sin and justification before God through his works as a monk. Instead, he found a greater and deeper understanding that God’s grace is what justifies us. In celebration of and in response to the gift of grace, we are then called to live lives of love and perform acts of service.
