Fall Food Drive

Fall Food Drive

By The Rev. Ginny Aebischer

Assistant to the Bishop

We have learned of a very significant need in our Synod and invite you and your congregations to join in this Fall Food Drive to benefit Seminary Students at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary.

Seminary students are focused on completing assigned readings, writing papers, working in local parishes, and engaging in the various ways the Spirit is forming them at LTSS. Unfortunately, many of them are also focused on the financial stress of mounting loans, and very often, the funds they are allowed to borrow do not stretch far enough to cover all the costs of life. Our congregations can make a significant difference and we hope you will join in this Food Drive by collecting and sending us gift cards for our seminarians. If you feel called to help a student buy some groceries or fill their gas tank, you may buy a gift card to Food Lion, Publix, or Shell and bring/send them to the South Carolina Synod office at 1003 Richland Street Columbia, SC 29201. We’ll bring your gifts to students who need them.

Thank You

We want to thank those of you who have sent grocery store and gas station gift cards for seminarians at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary! Your generosity has been a blessing that will continue to give!

We will continue collecting gift cards throughout this last quarter of the year for the seminarians for those of you who wish to give but haven’t yet had the chance. Just send your gift card donations to the Synod office by December 15, 2019 and I will be sure to get them to LTSS. If the need continues after the new year we will let everyone know.

Thank you!
Together in ministry,
Pastor Ginny Aebischer
