June Special Offering : Lutheran Theological Seminary @ Philadelphia

During the month of June we will be collecting a special collection to support the work of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. LTSP is a seminary of our denomination and works to equip future leaders of the church so that congregations continue to have pastors, musical leaders, educators – both lay and rostered in church leadership.
