Adoption Month Study

Four-Week Conversation About Adoption

While November is National Adoption Month, anytime of the year is a good time to raise awareness about adoption. Many children need loving adoptive families. The goal of this study is to bring awareness to issues surrounding adoption and offer resources to those with an interest in adopting or supporting foster and adoptive families. The study is offered by Children's Home Society and Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, organizations that are partners in adoption. 


Week Long Senior Nutrition Program for Vacation Bible School

Senior Nutrition Program for Vacation Bible School

LSS Meals provides nutritious meals, social contact and support for individuals 60 years of age and older at Senior Dining Centers, Diners’ Clubs and with home-delivered meals. The recipients of these meals are asked to help cover the cost, but often times cannot afford to do so. Regardless of one’s ability to pay for these meals, no one is turned away from receiving them.

This four day study is written for elementary and middle school students participating in Vacation Bible School (VBS). It teaches children about food insecurity and how everyone can help a neighbor.

The Leader's Guide provides detailed instructions for youth leaders, pastors or other church leaders to facilitate these four sessions.
