Endowment Fund: Enhancing our Mission

Lord of Love began an endowment fund in 1988. The purpose is to provide a means for receiving financial gifts, large and small; and to enhance the mission of Lord of Love apart from Lord of Love’s general operating budget. Once the fund reached $50,000, interest on the principal has been used to award grants totaling over $60,000 the last 15 years. The principal fluctuates with the market and is invested in the ELCA Endowment Fund Pooled Trust. The current value is over $120,000, so we anticipate that we can award grants totaling $6000 this year.
Grant Applications are accepted annually from September 1 until October 31st. Anyone can apply for a grant on behalf of an organization. Individuals may also encourage folks within an organization to apply for a grant. Find out more on the Endowment Fund page. Brochures with detailed information are also available on the information shelf in the Narthex.

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.
