Lutheran Men in Mission Gathering

The men of the Southwestern Texas Synod Lutheran Men in Mission are gathering to rejuvenate the Synod LMM. We will be meeting at Zion Lutheran Church in Helotes (San Antonio) on September 30th, 2023. The theme for our gathering is "WHAT CAN LMM DO FOR YOUR CONGREGATION?" We want to help you start or improve the Men's ministry in your congregation. The gathering will start at 8:30 AM and run through 3:00 PM and will include presentations from the LMM Board, our local synod, and members of the Zion Church. We will also have a required business meeting to elect officers and start developing plans for the future. We are requesting a free will offering to cover the cost of coffee, tea, water, and snacks. We will provide sandwiches for lunch. For those men who would like to arrive on Friday morning, we will be putting together a group to help at a Habitat for Humanity build site.
