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.
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.
Monday evening, March 12, Lutheran Social Services of Northwestern Ohio, Luther Home of Mercy and Filling Homes came together for the fifth time as the Lutheran Ministries of Mercy hosting members of the Association of Congregations, LMM Board members and friends of our ministries for our Annual Meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn at Levis Commons in Perrysburg.
As members of the Ohio chapter of Lutheran Services in America, Lutheran Ministries of Mercy affiliates actively support Lutheran disaster relief services in our state. Together, the member agencies in Ohio have joined together to assist in building a statewide, interfaith network addressing both the immediate and emergent needs following a disaster in our communities.
As we welcome the New Year at Lutheran Social Services we are thankful for the holiday season just past. The treasured memories of these days carry us, with grateful hearts, into the promise of a new year. As we move forward in faith, our Lutheran Ministries of Mercy affiliation; the internal goals we set for ourselves; and how we interact with one other and our community sets us apart from many other non-profit agencies.
