1-1-1 for Missions

Concordia Lutheran Mission   (CLM) is a confessional Lutheran mission church in Myerstown, PA. We exist to spread the Good News of Jesus and to reach the lost in Lebanon County, PA. As we continue to sow the seed here, we ask that you continue to remember us in your hearts and prayers. 
Won’t you consider joining us as we support the DRLM and Concordia Lutheran Mission in Myerstown, PA? YOU can support them through your prayers for their ministries to grow as they evangelize to the community around them. Joining 1-1-1 will help our two missions as they continue to witness and as they share their heartfelt faith in Christ.
