The Foundation recognizes that each congregation is at a different place when it comes to their social service outreach ministries. Some congregations want to “test drive” an idea before developing a full project/effort. Congregation Mini Grants are a special funding opportunity for Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod congregations to pilot an idea for a new social service outreach ministry. Grants can be up to $5,000. Applications are typicaly reviewed and acted upon within two weeks of receipt. CLICK HERE for more information.
