How will you and your loved ones strengthen your faith during this Season of Lent?
Lent, the 40 day season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving within the Christian faith, began on Ash Wednesday (February 22, 2023) and ends at sundown on Holy Thursday (April 6, 2023). It is a period of preparation to commemorate Easter.
During this time, we encourage you to pray for people in our community who are oppressed, suffering from discrimination and facing adversity. Read the latest edition of our Seeds newsletter and be inspired by stories of hope and healing made possible by the mission and programs of LMM.
We also ask you to consider almsgiving to LMM and support our efforts to seek justice, love mercy and serve our neighbors in need with humility.
Each year, LMM serves thousands of people who are experiencing homelessness and food insecurity, men and women returning to community from incarceration, youth facing an adverse experience and vulnerable adults in need of guardianship.
Here are a few ways you can support the work of LMM with a charitable donation.
- Mail a donation to LMM in the envelop enclosed in your Seeds newsletter.
- Give online at lutheranmetro.org, or search “Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry” in Cleveland, OH on Thrivent, Givelify or Benevity.
- Donate stock to LMM by way of Merrill Lynch. Contact Marcella Brown, Vice President of Development & Communications, at 216.658.7208 to confirm transfer information.
- Make an in-kind donation of goods for our clients and shelter residents by way of our Amazon Wish List.
Your support will enable us to give agency to our neighbors in need, while honoring your faith and commitment to serving with joy.
