Partnering With Churches

Partnering in God’s Grace to Serve

Find out how LSMNJ works with Lutheran congregations, individuals, and groups to extend God’s love by reaching out across New Jersey in a multitude of supportive ways.

Partnering With Churches

LSMNJ values the ministry we share with our New Jersey congregations in responding to the homeless, those that are food insecure or impacted by disaster, and those from infants to seniors who need our help.   When we partner with congregations, we not only extend our reach – but also learn new ways to connect with and touch our communities. Thank you for helping us to further our mission.

Lutheran Learning

LSMNJ offers a series of workshops and classes entitled Lutheran Learning. These educational programs are intended for your pastor, church leaders, and congregational members to enhance your ministry and broaden your understanding of current topics, such as prepared­ness. LSMNJ will bring these free, ready-made programs to your church. All you need to do is choose a topic, select a date, and share the details with your congregation and community or invite select church leaders to attend. Download the Lutheran Learning flyer for a list of workshop topics.
