Thank You! FISHING for FUNDS was a HUGE success!
Your continued support of the youth of Lord of Love brought in excess of $5,000!
This significant contribution to the Youth Fund assists in the cost sharing of the Gathering for the 11 youth and 2 chaperones that are attending. These funds will help to cover the cost of transportation and hotel rooms for the week plus some fun and Houston culture along the way.
It also helps preserve Youth Funds for use in future events.

Men’s Bible Study every Saturday, 7AM
Lord of Love’s men’s group and Bible study meets each Saturday in the Fellowship Hall at 7 a.m. Breakfast is followed by Christian study and fellowship until 8 a.m. Plenty of food and seating is always available. We invite all men to come join us for food fellowship.
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 published at the beginning of each month. This newsletter enables 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 and response to the gift of grace, God invites us to live lives of love and perform acts of service.
