Lutheran Learning provides tools to address current topics.

Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey (LSMNJ) is excited to present 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.

If you are interested in a topic that is not listed, please let us know.
