Each fall, some of the interest earned on the principal of the endowment fund is given away as grants—3-5% of the principal.
Applications are due October 31st See the Endowment page for more details.

Lord of Love’s Community Garden
The gardening season is winding down.  It really has been a year of bumper crops for the sweet corn, potatoes, cucumber and zucchini, peppers, and tomatoes.  All of these items have been taken to Project Hope to share with people seeking nourishing food.
We are wrapping up our harvesting this fall with lots of tomatoes and peppers being picked every week. 
The hard red winter wheat was hand cut and threshed in July, resulting in roughly 16 pounds of wheat berries. We shared about 4 pounds of the resulting flour with Table Grace ministries.  The congregation was blessed with some whole wheat communion bread this fall.
We met regularly throughout the year on Mondays and Thursdays at 8:30AM. Beginning September 12th we are meeting on Monday’s only. All are welcome to come, help, and enjoy the fellowship!  Many hands make for light work.

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.

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.
