Celebrating 140 Years!
2022 marks the 140th year of Lutheran Social Services reaching out to individuals, children, families and communities of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. LSS meets people right where they are in their lives – whether they are experiencing homelessness, addiction, trauma or other challenges that keep them from living their best lives. Refugee settlement was a large part of LSS activity in 2021 and, due to worldwide events, will continue to be in the future. LSS welcomed 200 Afghans between September and mid-January. The refugee pipeline is still open with LSS settling an on-going stream of refugees every month. Right now, a team of volunteers from Cedarburg (and Faith) are joining with Redeemer Lutheran Church in Milwaukee preparing to assist LSS in refugee settlement. Joe Dorr is spear-heading the Cedarburg aspect of this project.
How can we be personally connected to LSS ministry?
-Pray for LSS staff and the people they serve.
-Use an LSS service or recommend LSS to someone you know who may need such services.
-Support local refugee settlement.
-Contribute to the Mission of the Month. LSS depends on congregations and individuals for support. Financial support from churches and individuals is key to the success of LSS.
Please give out of your own abundance and blessings.
