Lutheran Church Charities Food Equipment Is Now Available for Outreach Ministry in Between Disasters
Lutheran Church Charities is making available food equipment to Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) Northern Illinois District churches. All of this equipment can be used by ministry teams as an outreach opportunity for your community.
LCC Mobile Food Kitchen
The LCC Mobile Food Kitchen is available to schedule for ministry outreach opportunities by having an LCC volunteer team prepare, cook and serve a meal. It could include hosting a picnic after an outdoor worship service. If this is something your church would be interested in hosting, please complete the LCC Mobile Food Kitchen Outreach Form and we will contact you with further details.
LCC Hot Dog Cart
The LCC Hot Dog Cart is a good addition to any church outreach ministry event. Once scheduled, church ministry teams need to make arrangements to pick-up and return the LCC Hot Dog Cart from the LCC storage location. If your church would be interested in using this item, please complete the LCC Hot Dog Cart Form and we will contact you with further details.
LCC Commercial Grill
The LCC Commercial Grill can be used for any church outreach ministry event. Once scheduled, church ministry teams need to make arrangements to pick-up and return the LCC Commercial Grill from the LCC storage location.

We would love to hear your ideas on how your ministry teams can utilize LCC Food Equipment for outreach ministry to spread the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to your neighbors.
LCC K-9 Ministry teams continue to be present and serve in their communities by sharing the hope and love that can be found in Jesus Christ.
Following guidelines of the state and local authorities in regard to COVID-19, LCC K-9 Ministry teams use creative ways to reach out to those suffering and in need bringing God’s presence and touching the lives that need it.
They connect with healthcare workers, first responders, assisted living communities, and school children, to name a few, to lift them up, listen to them, pray with them, smile with them, and let them know that they are loved.

L.E.R.T. Volunteers Partnering for Church Property Clean-Up
Several Lutheran Church Charities Lutheran Early Response Team (L.E.R.T.) volunteers from St. John, Wheaton, Lord of Life, Elburn and Trinity, Roselle, joined St. Peter, Schaumburg's L.E.R.T. members to trim and haul dead limbs, overgrown trees, and heavy decaying limbs from over thirty trees at St. Peter's cemetery on their grounds, which include the church, school, and Historic Chapel.
The following L.E.R.T. volunteers worked through a very hot and humid day, with special care taken to keep all hydrated and safe:
St. John, Wheaton
Marty Johnson, Steve Chester
Lord of Life, Elburn
Larry Zagorski, Kristi Farnum, Jeff Straughn
St. Peter, Schaumburg
Bob and Barb Royce, Sarah Blanchard, Christine Carlson, Pastor Greg Hintz, Tom Amundsen, Sean Freres, Vicki and Ken Kiviranta, and Jeff Vogt (St. Peter's Property Manager)
St. Peter gives a special thanks to the team members that brought and utilized the recently repaired LCC boom lift and the Lord of Life's mini-bobcat. They were able to trim many high dead or dying limbs, some of which were very insect-infested, and then haul all of the heavy cut wood to the lot for pickup.
The love of Christ and Christian camaraderie was present in everyone’s servant hearts and workday activities.
Lutheran Church Charities received a thank you note from Lutheran High School of Greater New Orleans for a donation to help fulfill the high school's mission of providing a Christian education to students.
