The final push is here. We will complete the relief supply drive this weekend on Sunday at noon. We are praying for an incredible weekend. Our prayer is to receive more than 10,000 items will be received. It is an ambitious goal as earlier in the week we had surpassed 3,000. Please continue to pray for this effort! If you have not yet contributed, make sure to check the needs list and bring your contribution on Sunday when you come to worship.

If you would like to volunteer to help with the pick up or to serve at their warehouse in Itasca, you can fill out their volunteer application.
Here is a listing of the Lutheran Church Charities service opportunities:
The first delivery has been made to the Lutheran Church Charities warehouse in Itasca. They come from Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington, Illinois which was the church where Pastor Kolb served before coming to Lord of Life. You can watch Lutheran Church Charities video of the supplies arriving below.
