If you are a church worker (rostered or lay) within the LCMS Northern Illinois District, we want you to stay informed.
Visit NIDnews.org for stories, an events calendar and feature news.
Submit your contact information (online) for the district office if you are new in your ministry location or when you change work or personal email or address. (NOTE: This is in addition to what is provided for LCMS Rosters and website.) Church workers automatically receive Our Northern Illinois District magazine in the mail if they provide a home address and the Parish Resource Connection by email if they provide an email address.
The Church Worker Care Team is a group of fellow church professionals that the LCMS Northern Illinois District has asked to be available to come alongside fellow District church workers during a challenging time in their lives to provide them with a listening ear and spiritual support.
The Church Worker Care Team was formed to give our church workers currently serving congregations, schools, and ministries, someone to whom they can speak who is a fellow church professional who can be that safe and spiritually caring colleague to provide support during a challenging time.
The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod’s Office of National Mission has fully funded these respite retreats to support, encourage, and strengthen all teachers, commissioned ministers and pastors. To learn more about these retreats and to register visit doxology.us/take-heart.
Set Apart to Serve (SAS) is an initiative of the LCMS to recruit church workers. Since church work is rooted in Baptism and a lifetime of hearing the Word, SAS encourages young people to consider church work vocations primarily through their continued and faithful involvement with their congregation. Learn more about the LCMS church work recruitment initiative at lcms.org/set-apart-to-serve.
Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) provides services available to anyone connected with our LCMS churches and schools. Go to the national LCEF website to learn about investment and loan opportunities, StewardAccount financial services, ministry support and more. Or speak to our local LCEF VP Joe Willmann to learn more.
