Luther Memorial Lutheran Church
The mission of Luther Memorial is to proclaim and preserve the gospel of justification by grace received through faith in Christ. We are compelled and empowered by the Holy Spirit to share fellowship with all through worship, learning, witness and service, so that the Word of God in Jesus Christ becomes active in human lives.
Luther Memorial Lutheran Church is a Reconciling in Christ congregation. As a community of the people of God, we are called to minister to all people of the world, knowing that the world is often an unloving place. Our world is a place of alienation and brokenness. Christ calls us to reconciliation. We are challenged by the Gospel to be agents of healing within our society.
The Apostle Paul writes “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female” (Galatians 3:28) Christ has made us one. We wish to make known our caring and concern for those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons. All are welcome within the community of this congregation and encouraged to share in the sacramental and general life of LMLC.

Change for Change in June
The School Supply and Book Bag Program
Are we crazy?! Summer has barely started and we’re talking about school supplies! But it’s true – not the crazy part, the time to talk about school supplies part! The June Change for Change is about School Supplies.
An annual summer project of Luther Memorial, with leadership from the Social Ministry Committee, is to participate in the School Supply and Book Bag Program in conjunction with the New River Valley Salvation Army. School supplies and book bags are assembled and donated to the Salvation Army so that they can be provided to families with children who have difficulty affording the necessary school supplies.
This summer will be our 7th Annual School Supply and Book Bag Program! (Wow!) To get an early start on our project, we have designated the June Change for Change donations to go to the School Supply and Book Bag Program. All donations given in June will be used in July to purchase school supplies and put them in book bags, so that EVERY child in our community can be ready for that first day of school!
As always, we will be preparing book bags for: pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, elementary school (Grades 1-4), middle school (grades 5-8), and high school (grades 9-12).
Here is your opportunity to help a wonderful community program. It is always great fun to see the colorful pencils, notebooks, folders, book bags and other supplies assembled in the church narthex, before they are donated to the Salvation Army. So, be sure to make your contributions to Change for Change as you leave the Sanctuary!
P.S. Watch for more information in July about the School Supply program, including supply lists and when and where you can donate items.
