Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Covington, LA, shared the message of God’s love and His Son’s resurrection with 100 children (and their parents!) on Saturday, March 13! God made a way for many Gospel seeds to be sown on this special day, an event that was open to the community.

100 Years of Reaching Out with God’s Friendship is the theme of the 100th anniversary of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Gulfport, MS. While there are (have been) several events planned throughout the year, the main celebration will be November 3, 2019. Southern District President, Rev. Eric C. Johnson, has agreed to be our guest speaker on that day. We are also fortunate to have three retired ministers in our congregation who are participating in our planned events.
The youth at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, where Rev. Jeff Hesterman is Pastor, served their annual Pre-Valentine Day Breakfast to the congregation. The donations given on that day will provide Christian education activities this summer.
During the months of December 2018 and January 2019, the members of Chapel of the Cross Lutheran Church, located on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, collected food items to be donated to the LSU Food Pantry. The mission of the LSU Food Pantry is to provide supplemental food to students in need who may experience hunger or food insecurity. The food pantry exists to address the issue of situational hunger among LSU students. Chapel’s LWML members are committed to making this food donation project an ongoing effort.
The members of Christ Lutheran Church in Albertville, AL, gave assistance to the children as they decorated the church for Christmas on Sunday, December 2, after the worship service. When everything was perfectly arranged, everyone gathered in the fellowship hall for a spaghetti cook-off dinner.
The senior high youth at Grace Lutheran in Pensacola, FL, hosted a community outreach night of great food and uplifting praise music by Vickie Truett, a Christian singer / songwriter. Free will donations for the dinner went to help fund the summer 2019 trip to the LCMS National Youth Gathering.
