Prayer Bears Travel to Moore, OK

Nicole B. selected twenty of our Prayer Bears that she packed up and sent to Moore, OK. The bears were sent to comfort children that were effected by the recent tornado there. The bears were mailed to and distributed by the Hope Raiser Organization. Thank you, Nicole, for sharing God’s love through our Prayer Bear Ministry.

Where Are The Young Adults?

We see them in our neighborhoods, at the grocery store and in our offices; but we don’t see many of them beside us at church. I’m talking about young adults.

Join MISSION U School of Witnessing on Saturday, August 13th at 10 a.m. CDT for an interactive, hour-long webinar where we will explore how to connect with and witness to young adults.

Jessica Bordeleau, Young Adult Ministry Consultant to the LCMS Synodical Youth Ministry Office and Editor of , will clue us in on the “how-tos.”

Jessica will reveal who young adults are; why they are the way they are; what they believe and what they think about the church. Then she will share ways we can reach young adults from meeting them to worshipping beside them. You won’t want to miss this!

To join us, simply go to
on Saturday morning, August 13th. You will then be routed to the virtual meeting spot where you will join with other Christians continent-wide.


Become a Mighty Warrior on October 8th!

Pray it Forward

Our Prayer Bear program was the inspiration behind a project at a Lutheran School in Texas.  Karen Netherton, a teacher at the school and former Joplin resident, passed along our Prayer Bear program to the school;  they just put their own twist on the idea. They called it the Teddy Bear Chapel Challenge. The kids were challenged to raise money to purchase “Build a Bears”.
The Girl Scouts helped out by making 75 bears with the money raised.  The bears will sit in the church pews for four weeks.  They will then be given to shut-ins, a nursing home and to folks that are hospitalized. So you see, you never know when seeds are planted where they may grow…
