St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and Faith Lutheran Church in Shreveport, La., faced different problems but found a common solution.
The new missionaries were sent during a service at the LCMS International Center in St. Louis on Aug. 7.
The Synod’s colleges, universities and seminaries are preparing to return to class this fall under guidelines necessitated by COVID-19.
Due to the events surrounding COVID-19, some LCMS missionaries have returned to the states at this time, but the vast majority remain in the field.
Among other efforts, LCMS schools assisted by making and delivering face shields; collecting food, cash and other supplies; and providing temporary educational solutions for those far from home.
The LCMS Locator, found at the top of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s home page at lcms.org or at locator.lcms.org, is intended primarily to connect people to local ministries.
The Addendum is titled, “One little word can fell him: Ten reasons to question whether ‘online Communion’ is ‘truly good, right and salutary.’”
The Synod’s long-time Soldiers of the Cross grant assistance program has been “amplified” so that not only those workers who are on the Synod’s roster, but also lay workers in LCMS churches, schools and organizations, may apply for assistance.
