Because communication is central in our relationships it is important that we approach communication intentionally. This is especially true for those whose vocations which deal directly with people. Here are three forms of intentional communication:

Summer Internship Program 

Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) announces its Summer Internship Program for summer 2015. The program will provide an opportunity for four college students to explore career paths and gain valuable work experience in the areas of Ministry Support, Information Technology, Marketing, and Lending and Real Estate Management.


LCEF assists Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod ministries, facilitating the sharing of the Gospel through investments, loans and ministry-support services, ensuring funds and resources are available now and in the future to empower ministries in Kingdom work.


An internship at LCEF will give the student real-world experience in an environment that is intellectually challenging and rewarding.

Interns will benefit from a supportive, ministry-oriented environment.

> Pastor Prada needs volunteers for Sunday school! 

Help! Pastor Alfonso Prada Has the wonderful problem of needing more help and volunteers for the children of his  Sunday school at St. Martini, Milwaukee. His wife, Rosmy,  has been doing it all...but there are too many children? Though many of these children are Hispanic, they know English, so volunteers do not need to know Spanish. We're looking to find enough volunteers so that each volunteer would be needed only once per month. Time frame is 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Sundays. Please call Peg Raabe or Rev. Peter Kelm if you'd like to volunteer (414-464-8100). Thank You!
