Congregational StewardshipEvents and Resources
NEW! Placed for a Purpose Bible Studies and Sermons
Placed for a Purpose is a four-session stewardship series that focuses on our vocation as Christian stewards, called to serve our neighbors. Using the framework of Luther’s three estates of church, state, and home, the series explores the following questions: What does the Bible say about serving our neighbors in various spheres of life? Who are our neighbors? What do they need? How can we help?
Please feel free to use the resources below in whatever way they’re most helpful. If you have any questions about the study or the materials, contact Rev. Dan Galchutt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MissionInsite reports are FREE demographic studies sponsored by LCEF and available through the District. These reports provide an overview of a community based on population trends, economic factors, attitudes of residents, and more. Congregations can request reports by zip code or within a certain distance of their location. To request a report, contact Janet Powell in the District Office at email@example.com.
For more information on demographic support offered by LCEF, visit the demographics page of LCEF.org.
