Eleventh Triennial Convention offering helps 2 organizations
Our Triennial Convention Offering will be divided equally between Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest and the ongoing ministries of the churchwide women’s organization. Here's how you can participate.
How do you recognize Jesus? The Emmaus story might help you
Use our August monthly devotion as a summer Bible study with your group. After finishing it, you should be able to answer the question: How do you recognize the risen Lord?
