The Indiana Branch of Orphan Grain Train (OGT) at the request of the St Louis Synodicial Office and Lutheran World Relief and Human Care has put together the "Scrub Bucket Project” and is once again making a plea for buckets of cleaning material for the east coast. Here is how you and your congregation can help!

Celebrating God's Love (1963-2013+)
"Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart." Psalm 119:111
As we continue to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our work together in the Indiana District of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, please remember to review and use the special resources mailed to our congregations last September. These materials are also posted on this website under "Resources" and intended to be an encouragement to God's people to remember and be thankful for the bonds of faith and love that we share in Christ Jesus. We thank God for providing what we have needed at every stage of our work in the past half century!
May we pray for you?
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil.4:6
As God's people, we have the privilege and responsibility to bring all things before the Lord in prayer. Please let us know what to pray for you!
"The presence of the Spirit of grace grants us the privilege and creates in us the ability, nay, the necessity, to begin to pray." - Luther (W45,540-E49,113-SL8,3610)
Serving the Lord with you,
Rev.Daniel P. May
Indiana District President (LCMS)
Can MEF help?
And what exactly is MEF?
