Giving Tuesday 2019 — Making a Difference in a Changing World

2019–2021 Mission Grant — Hope and Healing Hub of Downtown Lincoln — University Lutheran Chapel — $50,000

What really matters to you? Chances are, it’s your home, job, church, family, friends, and, most important, your relationship with our Savior. But what if someone doesn’t know Jesus?

With God working through the funds we collect in our Mite Boxes, people can learn about Jesus’ saving power. The University Lutheran Chapel in Lincoln, Nebraska, the recipient of our 2019–2021 LWML Mission Grant #14, Hope & Healing Hub of Downtown Lincoln ($50,000), serves the area through worship, Bible study, and service opportunities.


Many young adults struggle with loneliness, anxiety, depression, and thoughts of suicide. As Lutheran parents, we raised our children in the faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. Others, however, were not brought up in Christian homes and have never heard the hope of the Gospel. I became acutely aware of this situation through family members who have personal connections with them.

The University Chapel will use grant funds to renovate their building, making it more inviting as they offer Christian counseling services through GracePoint Institute for Relational Health. Your mites and prayers can make a difference in the lives of young adults as they are provided hope through Jesus Christ. Give generously this Giving Tuesday, December 3.
