PRAYERS for the following churches and schools:

St. Peter's-Shaker Heights




Efforts are being made to connect youth and families from LCMS congregations. Many of our congregations have very small numbers when it comes to youth. So, let's be intentional in bringing these small groups together for a fun event or meaningful Bible study!

In order to be supportive, the Ohio District is collecting the names of those presently serving youth and families in their congregations. Once the list is complete, any church can contact the District Office to learn who to get in touch with at other churches close by.

PLEASE RETURN this Youth and Family Ministry Information Form so our lists can be complete and helpful! Thank you!
