Thanks to all who supported the special offerings during Lent and Easter. Over $3200 was given in support of Food Bank for the Heartland and hunger ministries supported by the 2016 ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving.
Summer breakfast monies will be given to the ELCA Lutheran Disaster Response, to support the many people who suffer from spring and summer storms.
In December 2015 the Endowment Fund awarded a grant of $1,000 to the Machame Hospital, an orthopedic hospital in Tanzania. See how the grant provides help for Majidi, a young needy patient, and others with serious orthopedic problems and depleted resources.
Men’s Bible Study every Saturday, 7AM
Lord of Love’s men’s group and Bible study meets each Saturday in the Fellowship Hall. A 7 a.m. breakfast is followed by Christian study and fellowship until 8 a.m. Plenty of food and seating is always available. All men are invited 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 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.
