Responding to Church Workers Suffering Financially
COVID-19 has dramatically affected our world in a variety of ways including making a global economic impact that has directly affected congregations and many church workers, perhaps even you. This has rapidly left many of our synod’s workers in economic distress.
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, the Lutheran Church Extension Fund, and the Northern Illinois District have joined together in creating a response to this economic downturn, designed to provide some temporal relief for those suffering financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This assistance is provided through the Soldiers of the Cross – COVID-19 Response Fund.
