The Lutheran Brotherhood Foundation recently awarded $10,000 to New Ethiopian Ministry in Berkeley. The funds are part of a Church Extension grant of $558,800 given to the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) to serve Lutheran congregations. The grant will be used to provide resources for special evangelism programs and to develop mission congregations.
“Through Church Extension grants, Lutheran Brotherhood is able to demonstrate its commitment to supporting and expanding Lutheran outreach,” Louise Thoreson, president and executive director of the Lutheran Brotherhood Foundation said in a press release.
Lutheran Brotherhood, a fraternal benefit society composed of 1.2 million members, allocated $76.6 million in 1999 to aid its members, and will award $1.79 million to eight Lutheran church bodies in 2000.
