Our latest Loads of Love distribution event was Saturday, April 1.
It was a VERY cold April morning (28 degrees at 7:45), yet there were many individuals lined up to receive a Loads of Love sack. We greatly appreciate the Men’s Breakfast Ministry group who helped us set up chairs in the Narthex and hallway so that no one had to wait long outside in the cold.
We were able to serve 154 families at this event which represents 731 individuals. Although the number of families was down slightly (perhaps because of the weather?), the appreciation from the recipients was clear and frequently expressed.
Thank you to the many volunteers that gave of their time and came out to help. At one point there was more than 24 volunteers! We couldn’t do this important ministry without the help of so many!

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.
