PEDAL FOR A PURPOSE Each year the Synod sponsors the Pedal for a Purpose. Participants have biked thousands of miles and raised over $150,000 for Lutheran Social Services of Illinois, Illinois campus ministries, our companion synods in Madagascar, and assisted pastors new to our synod with their seminary debt.
Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center (LOMC), was selected this year. The Synod goal this year is $25,000.
Thank you to our youth representative, Kate Rowley, for getting us set up at Forsyth Park, at the small pavilion, on May 6, from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. You can get a registration form in the office or from Kate Rowley.
Call the office if you need directions.
