A Faith Community that Reaches Out From the Heart

 OUTREACH & SERVICE

The goal of our outreach ministry is compassionate outreach. 
We are deeply committed to intentionally planning and organizing ways
to reach out to the world and our community, both with our "second offering"
received the last Sunday of each month, as well as "hands-on" service.   
These efforts help support local, statewide and world-wide needs. 

LOTM is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) that gives
a minimum of 5% of its regular annual budget to the world-wide ministry of the ELCA.  
BUT LOTM DOES MUCH MORE!

DAY SERVICES CENTER
LOTM operates a "Day Services Center" right out of our church building.
We offer laundry, showers, internet access and telephone to those in our community
who may be homeless or do not have access to those kinds of services.  A pot of soup or other light lunch is usually available. 
The center is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons.  However, special arrangments can be made
to come at other times and days, particularly for the laundry services.   Volunteers staff the center during its operating hours.
