Save the Date! May 7, 2017 is Good Shepherd Sunday!
2017 will be an exceptional year as LSSI celebrates its 150th anniversary of transforming lives!
On Good Shepherd Sunday, many congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) across the state celebrate their shared social ministry with Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI).
Jesus the Good Shepherd cared for his sheep by feeding them, healing them and reconciling them to themselves, their families and their communities.
Today, LSSI serves over 73,000 people — of all ages, races, incomes, and religions — helping them to address important needs and make essential changes in their lives.
Through LSSI — and the churches that support this ministry — the love of Jesus continues to transform the lives of people in Illinois. Each day, congregations help LSSI advance our shared mission of bringing "healing, justice, and wholeness to people and communities."
