Curbside Care Kits for those in Need
Our Family Life Table spent an afternoon after church in September putting together “Care Kits” for the homeless. Thrivent Financial partnered with us to collect and buy bus passes, toiletries, snacks and other items to put into each kit.
The ELCA World Hunger Relief
During Advent, Lord of Life puts together a gifting tree, benefitting the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s “Good Gifts” program. Each ornament is paid for by a member of the congregation to “gift” an animal, uniform, water well, or other much-needed item to a developing community. In addition, Lord of Life puts on a semi-annual “Splash Day” to raise money for water wells.
Bread for the World Sunday
Lord of Life sponsored a letter-writing campaign for the Bread for the World Sunday 2018, encouraging our Congress to make funding decision that will help end hunger.
Lutheran Campus Ministries
Lord of Life is the designated ELCA campus ministry site for the University of Central Oklahoma.

Oaks Indian Mission
This year, Lord of Life’s Christmas charity was Oaks Indian Mission. Individual Christmas stockings were given to each child and youth at Oaks. Additional gifts were given to the cottages at Oaks. Our Advent and Lenten offerings are another way the congregation supports Oaks Indian Mission. https://www.oaksindianmission.org/
