For many years, Lutheran Social Services (LSS) has provided food and encouraging words to thousands in our community who feed their families with the help of LSS food pantries. Most recently, LSS became the coordinating agency for 13 additional pantries operating as part of the “Feed Your Neighbor” network.
Lutheran Social Services of Northwestern Ohio is serving the community in a new and exciting way as the lead partner for an innovative, collaborative, public/private partnership, linked to a network of for-profit companies in Lucas County. The new service is designed to address common workforce needs of the employers and employees.
A celebration of generous acts of compassion and service to the people served by LSS ministries was experienced by everyone at the Lutheran Church of the Master, Perrysburg. Our most important advocates share the good news of LSS by word and deed on behalf of our clients and they also do an amazing job of recruiting new volunteers.

For people over 60, feelings of depression can be difficult to admit or even to recognize. Depression is not a normal part of aging. It is a diagnosable, medical condition like diabetes, arthritis or high blood pressure. Yet so many people in later years ignore the symptoms of depression or try to cope on their own without any help.
The rain didn't stop the Four Lutheran Agencies Golf Outing from taking place last Friday...although some of us did head into the clubhouse to finish the donuts and coffee sponsored by Absolute Pharmacy when the sky opened up and dropped buckets!
Several teams did brave the weather and got all 18 holes in before coming in to enjoy lunch served by the Stone Ridge Country Club chef and sponsored by The Dotson Company.
