Lutheran Men in Mission
The goals of Lutheran Men in Mission are to:
- "Encourage one another and build each other up..." (1 Thess. 5:11)
- Gather men throughout our congregations to pray for our pastors and church
- Strengthen men's faith, relationships, and mission in their homes, churches, communities
- Tear down the walls of culture, ethnicity, race and location that separate us.
The time has arrived! The first stage of our mission project is to identify the congregations that want to participate in the collection of clothing for men in homeless shelters by having them provide the name of a contact person to one of the following LMM Board members: Bob Bender, Marc Crosswell, Jeff Peterson, Ed Blankenhorn, or Dan Joy.
That contact person will coordinate the collection and distribution of the clothing in containers with LMM signs on them. LMM will also provide announcements for Sunday bulletins, newsletters, and church web pages, and will arrange for the pick-up of the items and delivery to designated shelters.
The actual collection by congregations is planned to start in early June for the spring drive and again in the fall. For further details, contact any of the above Board members.
This is an opportunity to put your faith into practice and respond to an urgent need.
