Mission Grant Resources

Rejoice and be glad!

So excited to share that we have completed another mission grant!

Upbring, the new LSSS was recently sent $10,000! This brings the total they have received to $20,000!

These monies are to be used to fund spiritual care activities for children in foster care, treatment centers and emergency shelters.

Prayer:
Heavenly Father, You know all of Your children with such detail that even the hairs of our head are numbered. Through the ministry of Lutheran Social Services of the South, comfort children who have been abused and abandoned so that they would know the depth of grace that You have for them. Through Your Word, assure them that absolutely nothing can separate them from Your great love shown in the cross and empty tomb of Jesus; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. (Prayer by Rev. Tim Appel)

Mission Grant Proposals for 2016-18 are due to Texas District officers by November 1, 2015. Download the instructions and forms here.
