As the ministries and services of Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) have expanded, so have the number of events and trainings where we serve food. We recently launched a new Food Service Ministry. This ministry is a supportive service run by volunteers to plan and execute food service for events.
With the reorganization of the kitchen, we reviewed our ongoing needs. It was determined that we need an ice machine. We currently purchase anywhere from 2-5 20 lbs. bags of ice for each of our 30-50 events.
Due to the increasing number of events at LCC where we serve meals or cold beverages, we are looking for a donation of an under the counter ice machine or an ice machine that stands alone on the floor.
If you have or know of a church, school, bar, or other business that would be able to donate an ice machine to LCC, please contact 866-455-6466 or email email@example.com
One member of an LCMS church who is impressed by Chris's service and dedication offered to donate $11,000 to the SMP if someone could match her gift. Hopefully, from now until September 2018, we can find gifts to match 1 to 1, or 2 to 1, in smaller gift giving totals that can surpass that.
Please prayerfully consider donating generously to help Salam raise a total of $20,000 for seminary for the first two years.

His leadership will help individuals and groups to create resources and events for inter-generational ministries in congregations and communities.
