**Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry (LMM)

         Our mission is to promote shalom (peace, well-being) and justice (right relationships) through a Christian ministry of service and advocacy with those who are oppressed, forgotten and hurting.

        LMM was established in response to the urban unrest of the 1960's, specifically the upheaval in Hough. Today, LMM serves and advocates with people currently and previously involved in the criminal justice system, youth at-risk, people with disabilities, people dealing with long term care needs and people who are homeless.

LWR Lutheran World Relief    

        Mission: Affirming God’s love for all people, we work with Lutherans and partners around the world to end poverty, injustice and human suffering. 

        World War II left an estimated one-fifth of the world’s Lutherans homeless. Initially prompted by sending aid to their German and Scandinavian kin, American Lutherans soon realized that aid could be shared fairly only on the basis of need. In the late 1940s, the focus was Palestinians forced from their homes by the creation of the state of Israel, the 1950s focused on Asia, and the 1970s & ’80s Africa.

**Chaplain Partnership (formerly Lutheran Chaplaincy)

           Chaplain Partnership employs professionally trained chaplains who serve in institutions that contract with us for spiritual care services. Our partner institutions are located throughout the northern half of Ohio and include hospitals, long-term care facilities, and a facility for the developmentally disabled.  We also offer our expertise as a search service for healthcare institutions seeking a chaplain.

Days for Girls Project ReportDaysForGirls.1.24.18.11

by Jill Koubal & Joanna Pretz-Anderson

How wonderful it was to observe the support and interest in the Days for Girls Project at CRLC!

We exceeded our goal and completed 60 kits to donate to www.daysfor girls.org helping to break the cycle of poverty.

 

More than 50 people participated with their time and donations of materials and supplies - on 7 different meeting dates.  This included children and YAC members, (a member's 96 year old mother eagerly shared her thread and material), women of all ages  - non-member family and friends, several from other Lutheran congregations. 

 

This project has taken well more than 300 hours of volunteer time (it takes more than 15 minutes just to complete one bag which will hold the supplies!).

 

9 faithful sewers with their machines

 

Presentations to our adult education, YAC, Women's Bible study groups and general conversations at church, with friends and community members have increased general awareness of

feminine hygiene needs in our world and country.

 

Donations of non-sewn items and Thrivent Financial funds helped to fill our needs. Plus

excellent fellowship enjoyed at our group activities!!!

If there is among you anyone in need ...

willingly lending enough to meet the need,

whatever it may be. 

(Deuteronomy 15:7-8)
