New Member Saturday was held at MLLC on March 9, 2019.

We welcomed three new members to the congregation. Seated left to right: Jesse McDaniel, Wendy McDaniel, and Sheryl Pratt. After worship a reception was held to celebrate God’s love and our life together. Welcome Jesse & Wendy, and Sheryl. Jesse and Wendy transferred to MLLC from a Lutheran Church in Friendswood, TX. Sheryl transferred from Martin Luther Lutheran in Giddings, TX. Thanks to the Care/Outreach Committee for hosting the reception.

We look forward to our years ahead in mission and ministry as God’s people together in Carmine.

Thank you to the people of both congregations who made this wonderful week of adventure, fun, learning, service and worship happen.  Also thank you to the families of our youth who worked to make it possible for these young people to have this experience in their faith.

Youth at Lutherhill Camp

MLLC BLC Lutherhill group 2014

This is a busy week at Lutherhill Ministries in La Grange, TX.  Along with youth from a wide variety of communities there is a combined contingent of campers from MLLC and our neighbor ELCA congregation, Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Round Top.  Five youth from MLLC were joined by several others of our friends in Round Top.  They have been spending the week at this excellent camp. See the photo above with all the kids from these congregations – and an extra friend or two.

Several of the youth have attended camp at Lutherhill several times.  One of the youth has lost count, for he has gone to Lutherhill maybe 4, 5 or 6 years in a row.  Some are having their first experience at this camp, and are hoping for many more summers.

We at MLLC are big supporters of Lutherhill and Lutheran/Christian Camping programs.  We also offer a partial “campership” for MLLC members who would like to participate in the summer camp programs at Lutherhill or other Lutheran summer camping programs.

We will post more photos from this week at camp in the next couple of days.  Remember to keep these youth in your prayers as they grow in Christ through the camping programs of Lutherhill Ministries.
