For all Lutherans For Frontline Volunteers!

LFL Frontline Zoom Call – April 8, 2024

Frontline Call – Do you know what you may be missing?

These calls are to keep you informed of happenings at Lutherans For Life that may impact you and your life ministry. Also, project ideas are shared by other Frontline members, and you can ask them directly to relate how they implemented their special project. Please mark your calendars and plan on attending this online event designed especially for you. We hope to see you there!

During this Frontline Call, recorded on April 8, 2024, Dave Probst, LFL’s Director of Development, will share the details about our upcoming 2024 Step Up 4 Life fundraising campaign. Learn how you can witness to and affirm the value of human life by participating in our Step Up 4 Life campaign from May 12 through June 24. There are a variety of ways to participate: You may host a congregational 4 Life Day, plan a Frontline Step Up 4 Life Event, or make a direct donation to LFL. Dave will highlight vital resources and materials that you can use to successfully Step Up 4 Life and support the mission of LFL at the same time.

Robert Wegner, the President of the Peoria (Illinois) Area LFL #268, will share with us a great new twist on their diaper drive project. Besides collecting diapers for their regional pregnancy resource centers, they collect packages of adult protective underwear, such as the Depend® brand, to donate to local nursing homes. Disposable paper bed pads and wipes are also received throughout the year and donated. Dr. Geistfeld will also discuss a related project that provides adult bibs for seniors. National Senior Citizens Day is on August 21, 2024, but you may honor and minster to your seniors any day you wish!

Life Ministry Playbook
Rev. Jeff Duncan, former Assistant Director of Volunteer Relations, leads a session titled “The Life Ministry Playbook.” Lutherans For Life produces great resources. Are you using them all or many or any? This simple playbook format will outline ways that your life ministry can engage your congregation, your membership, and your community to equip and support the life issues you face. We will be looking at the end-of-life issues that confront us all and give examples that can be duplicated for most other life issues as well.

We invite you to watch this important session as we have good news to share that affects you directly.

As we approach the one-year anniversary of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, we are providing unique opportunities for your Life Chapter, Life Team, or Life Advocate to engage your congregations in both recognizing this event and help LFL further our ministry provided for you.

Along with regular LFL updates, we will share some exciting developments in volunteer relations that will enhance your For Life work and engage new life ministries in churches across the country. We ask you to help multiply those efforts which are vital parts of a healthy life ministry.

May the Lord bless your life-affirming efforts as you strive to share God’s love For Life to a world in need of hearing it!

LFL Frontline Call – October 10, 2022

Life Team members from Trinity Lutheran Church, Auburn, Illinois, describe their Son Shine project—a ministry to shut-ins and the recently bereaved.

Rev. Jeff Duncan also leads Life Team Training – Facet #6 | Resourced – As a trusted, multi-faceted, consistent, unified, Gospel-motivated ministry of your local congregation, the Life Team ought to be “resourced” by that congregation. No mission group operates in our world without being funded. Resourced Life Teams don’t worry about the support of financial or other assets because they know their work of equipping the members and their neighbors in all areas of the life arena are part of how the Lord of the Church brings the Gospel of forgiveness, hope, and restoration to those in need!

LFL Frontline Call – July 11, 2022

Virginia Flo, Director of Volunteer Relations for Lutherans For Life, will lead a session titled, “How Can I Support My Local Pregnancy Resource Center?”

As of June 24, 2022, we live in a “Post-Roe World.” Thanks be to God, the SCOTUS decision ended an era of federal regulations on abortion. Once again, the decision has moved to the local and state level. That is also where abortion vulnerable women need Godly and appropriate support, information, and, most especially, the hope found only in the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus who is the author of all life! You are encouraged to support life by supporting those who seek out your local pregnancy resource center (PRC). But how do you know this is the proper center to support? What questions might be asked to assure your support goes to centers that are biblically-based and do not refer clients to abortion facilities? What education programs guide women (and men) beyond the pregnancy? What are ways you can become active to volunteer and help? Learn basic skills to interview and support your local PRC and thus become a greater ‘Gospel-motivated voice for Life’ in your community!

Pastor Jeff Duncan, Assistant Director of Volunteer Relations for LFL, will present Life Team Training on “Facet #5 – Trusted.”

In Facet #5 of Life Team training, we discover why all Life Teams seek to be Trusted by their church leadership, members, and community. Reliability, confidence, and dependability are important aspects of an effective and believable Life Team. How will you bring this assurance to the church leadership and community you serve even as you seek to be that Gospel-motivated voice of truth For Life?
