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.
One ongoing service opportunity is working at the Lutheran Pantry at First Lutheran on 31st and Jackson. People are needed especially on Mondays and Tuesdays from about 12:45 to 2:30 p.m. The need is great, as 70 to 100 people have been coming in one and one-half hours on Mondays, for example. (Some of the Lord of Love garden produce has gone to this pantry this summer, too.) If interested, please give Simone Weber a call at First Lutheran, 917-992-8574.
Endowment Fund Applications
The Endowment Committee is looking for special needs and missions that need funding. Applications will be taken until the stroke of midnight on December 1. The Endowment Committee helps fund special missions, projects, or one-time awards for good causes. To obtain funding for special missions, complete an application obtained from the church office or in the Narthex, and return it to the Endowment Committee.
The Memorial Committee is seeking suggestions and ideas for use of Memorial funds. During the past year, memorial funds were used to: help purchase bells and chimes for the Bell Choir, round tables in the Narthex, an Automated External Defibrilator (AED), and other items needed to support our ministries. If you have a great idea for use of Memorial funds, please contact a committee member.
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.
Outreach to our immediate community and beyond- Your financial gifts through special offerings help supplement our normal mission involvement. Loose offering from the first Sunday of the month goes to the Deacon’s Fund and Together, Inc. to help local needs.
