Ministries

Our Community:

Food Pantry:
Members of Luther Memorial are invited to help serve and contribute to the Syracuse Area Churches Food Pantry, Inc., which was begun by Luther Memorial to meet the needs of those in need of nutria and health essentials. Anyone who lives in the Syracuse area may receive help.

Backpack Club:
Every Thursday backpacks of food for the weekend will be prepared to give to needy elementary kids to take home and help feed themselves and their families. The backpacks will be handed out on Friday after school and returned on
Monday during the school year.

Germanfest Worship:
The Syracuse Community Germanfest Worship concludes this annual celebration of the German Heritage of the folks who settled in this region of Nebraska. This ecumenical event is a great way to end the excellent festivities that are
a part of Syracuse’s Germanfest Weekend.

Living Nativity:
This community wide production of the Christmas Story takes place on the first Sunday in December on Main Street in Downtown Syracuse around the Christmas Tree at 5:0 p.m. Folks of all ages help to put on this dramatic presentation of the Days leading up to the birth of Christ, the First Nativity and the coming of the Wise men. Christmas hymns, angels, shepherds, and a manger with live animals make the Christmas Story literally come alive.

Our World:

Adult Mission Trips:
These opportunities to go and serve neighbors whether here at home or in places far away are open to any adult member of this congregation. Scholarships and mission subsidies are available. Past mission trips: the Gulf Coast;
Black Hills; Scottsbluff, NE; Key West, FL; and Indian Oaks, OK.
