Often we want to help others, we just don’t know how to start. SHARE YOUR 'SERVICE FOR JESUS' STORY to help others see the wonderful possibilities in their own communities!

  • Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod (LCMS) members of all ages in the upper Midwest districts (Iowa Districts East & West, Minnesota North & South Districts, North & South Wisconsin Districts, North Dakota District) have the opportunity to win $1,000 for their LCMS ministry.
  • Share a brief video (less than 2 minutes) or photo of your community service. Feature you and/or your friends serving others for Jesus. Service can happen at your own LCMS church, school or in your community. Get out there and serve!
  • IMPORTANT: Encourage friends, family and your LCMS church members and school families to share your entry via Facebook #service4Jesus so your service story is shared. You might help spark service ideas for others. One winner from each participating district will be randomly chosen and win $1,000 for their LCMS ministry.
