Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay recently received a $5,000 “Lutheran Community Matthew 25: Neighbors in Need” grant from the Thrivent Financial Foundation. The funding was awarded to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church based on its effectiveness in addressing physical, emotional and/or spiritual needs in the local community such as food, clothing, shelter, fellowship, and care for the sick based on Jesus’ words in Matthew 25: 35-36.
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church has also elected to participate in a complimentary two-to-one challenge grant program sponsored by the Foundation. For every dollar raised by Prince of Peace Lutheran Church from donors by Feb. 28, 2015, the Thrivent Financial Foundation will provide an additional 50 cents – up to $5,000 – in support of the organization’s Christian Counseling Outreach ministry.
