Special Mission – LADD (Lutheran Association for the Developmentally Disabled) is our designated mission for February. LADD is a local Lutheran organization that provides special camps, programs, and funding for individuals with disabilities. As an example, when a developmentally disabled couple from Grace needed handicapped accessible transportation to attend our church services, LADD provided the necessary funding each week.
Many of our members help to raise funds by working at the LADD Shop on Buffalo Avenue. If you wish to support this mission, please place your donation in the Special Mission Envelope found in your envelope box.
