I just received a remarkable phone call.

Last year, Margaret Moreland and Bennett Falk (pictured at left) gave a year-end gift to encourage new and former donors to support Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries.

Margaret says they want to do this again – and this year they are providing a very generous match.

This means that your new and renewed donations will be matched dollar for dollar between now and Dec. 31.  Click here to give now.

At least 20 seminarians will be seeking an internship site next fall, and there are 10 great pastors awaiting call right now.  Your contribution of $50 or $100 – or whatever you can send now – is a sign of hope and assurance to these ministers and the church.

Your gift of $50 or more would really help these leaders.  A $50 gift means $100 towards ministry by LGBTQ leaders. $250 would mean $500.

How to Give

There are three ways to donate this year and qualify for the match.

Give online right now by clicking here.  You can make a gift using a credit card or directly from your checking account.

-Call me at 563-382-6277 to make a donation using your credit card or directly from your checking account.  I’ll be in the office until 5:00 p.m. CT on Friday, Dec. 28 and Monday, Dec 31.

-Mail a check to ELM, 2649 N. Francisco Ave., Chicago, IL 60647.  It must be post-marked by Dec. 31.

Margaret told me she and Bennett are glad to make this gift because they care so much about LGBTQ leaders and the ministries that support them.  I hope we can count you among our supporters this year.

Your gift must be made on or by Dec. 31, 2012 to qualify for this dollar to dollar match.  The gift you can give is the support we need to help these leaders and ministries.  Thank you to all of our wonderful supporters and to Margaret and Bennett for this extraordinary gift.
