Story of Giving

March 4th was my second time to visit PMLC. I was encouraged by my new Grow Group friends to go down and get an envelope just as Pastor was asking all visitors to come down. My family was not with me, so I didn’t open the envelope until I took it home and had the […]

We donated our gift to a small ELCA Lutheran congregation outside of Milwaukee, WI. The pastor and choir director are members of our family, at St John’s Lutheran on Stone Bank Rd near Oconomowoc Lake.

After receiving this awesome gift of $500, we have really been praying about how we could best put it to good use and to help others. We have been giving to a charity called Feed the Children for about 15 years and happened to receive a pamphlet in the mail from them advertising their Easter […]

Story of Giving

We prayed earnestly about where we could use God’s resources to be a blessing to others. After several days of separately considering one of PMLC’s existing mission organizations or a local family/individual in need, God placed it on both of our hearts to give to the ALS Association. Our friend’s dad, Dr. Greg Wood, was […]

They feed 250 families a week in our area on a […]
