MOM Mission Statement


Grateful for the greatest gift given to us

through Jesus' death and resurrection,

MOM is an opportunity for us to respond each month

to give to our neighbors near-by and far-away


MISSION FOR DECEMBER - VETERANS OF THE CROSS

Each December, it seems fitting that we remember with gratitude the retired Lutheran pastors, deaconesses and teachers who faithfully served our church people, bringing us the wonderful news of the Word made flesh. Many of these pastors, teachers and their spouses have difficulties meeting even basic needs due to staggering medical expenses. Why, you ask? Because of a lifetime of service in small or struggling congregations that were unable to afford full-time salaries, these workers received a lower benefits contribution into their Concordia Plan Services retirement account. Faithful donors and an endowment provide the funding so that Concordia can provide monthly benefits of $500 to $1,000 making it possible for retirees and widows to afford the cost of necessities like medication, food and electricity. Generous giving enables these stipends to continue as long as needed. Please give generously to the Veterans of the Cross, as a token of gratitude for their service to us.
