Welcome Back, Nursery!
A staffed nursery will again be available every Sunday for children ages 0-5 from 8:30 to 10:30. Please know that we love having children in worship as part of our church family. We wouldn’t be a real family without them. We also know that sometimes it’s a lot of work for parents to keep them entertained. We will have a person available to watch your children if you would like them to have another space to go to for part or all of the worship service.

Check out our Covid-19 Response page.

Responding to Virus Conditions
The Member Care Team encourages you to seek reliable information and to consult with your personal trusted health care provider to help make your educated decision about receiving the COVID vaccine. Vaccination scheduling is fairly easy through the Douglas County community vaccination web site. Walk-in clinics are also available.

With the coronavirus Delta and Omicron variants, transmission and vaccines continue to pose many questions for so many of us. It is important that we all make educated decisions related to COVID-19. One resource is this easy to follow video animation by Dr. James Lawler, UNMC infectious diseases expert about how coronaviruses and the vaccines 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.
