LOVE INC. Love Ops
Thursday, Nov. 16, 6:00 pm
Faith Lutheran Church will be hosting our first ever Love INC. Love Ops event right here in the fellowship hall. This event is a family friendly way to serve our neighbors in Lorain County. We will offer a meal, devotional, kids activity and time for fellowship. Volunteers are needed to make this event a success. Please sign up in the narthex.
Love In The Name of Christ
Love INC. is a non-profit organization that partners with churches to serve families in the local community by meeting verifiable and manageable needs. Love INC. acts as a screening agent and clearinghouse for goods and services provided by its network of churches. They review requests for help, assess and verify needs, refer or request assistance, and follow up to ensure that needs have been met and to offer prayer and spiritual support to recipients.
Love INC. provides a secure avenue for our church to not only provide for the physical needs of the community, but it gives us the chance to make a relational connection. Because Love INC. does all the background work to verify the validity of the request, we as a church can focus on what we can do best, sharing our faith and showing Christ’s love in our community.
Currently, Faith Lutheran Church supports 2 major efforts through the Love INC. network.
