On March 14, 2022 Lutheran Ministries of Mercy (LMM) and our affiliates, Filling Homes, Luther Home of Mercy and Lutheran Social Services of Northwestern Ohio gathered with 115 guests for our 9th Annual Meeting, “By Grace…With Gratitude” to celebrate 270 years of combined service in Northwestern Ohio.
We began our gathering with an opening prayer from LMM Board member, Bishop Chester Trail, founder and leader of Grace Temple Community Church. Board President, Chuck Winters and LMM President and CEO, Terri Rodriguez, provided inspirational reports highlighting the past year and new program opportunities for our ministries. We also enjoyed the reports of featured speaker the Rev. Dr. Nik Schillack of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, finished the evening with inspirational reflections on coming together to serve others.
A packet of information was distributed with detailed information related to Board member elections, each affiliates Foundation report and more. Attached on this page are the PDF of our LMM Annual Report and the Affiliate Foundation Reports. Simply click and read, or download for your convenience.
Our work would not be possible without our Association of Congregations, donors and community organizations who offer their on-going financial support of our ministries all year. Recognizing them and our more than 600 employees for their dedication was a highlight of our evening. A very special thank you to staff, Board members and volunteers who helped with the planning of this celebration!
