Winter is at our doorstep! With the changing of the seasons it’s natural to start thinking about Christmas. Hopefully these thoughts are filling you with excitement, anticipation, and joy!

Not sure what to add to your Christmas list this year? Consider asking for a gift to LPGM in your honor!

Is your family thinking of alternative, meaningful ways to give this year that don’t add to your stuff? Do you — or the people you’re shopping for — care about education? About young women? About the environment?

Let us help you with your Christmas shopping this year. Consider making a gift to LPGM in honor of someone on your list!

You can also join other Lutheran churches in hosting an Alternative Giving Fair in your congregation.

Bethel Lutheran in Northfield, Minnesota, has been hosting Alternative Giving Fairs with gifts from local, national, and global organizations (including LPGM!) since 2009. Year after year, members at Bethel provide access to quality education by giving gifts that include:

  • a four-month scholarship for an unsponsored graduating senior in India,
  • food for a student at a boarding home,
  • a safe place to stay for students in Tanzania, and
  • a week of environmental education for students in Guatemala!

Join congregations like Bethel Lutheran with this creative and thoughtful way to give meaningfully this Christmas season!

We’ll create a customized catalog of options just for you!
