Jesus said: “Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” – Matthew 6:31-33

BENCH FOR LT. ROBERT BENSON:
We thank all who helped contribute toward the $5,000 goal, which has been reached, in honor of Lt. Robert Benson. He was a lifelong member of PLC, who was killed in action during WWII. He will now be recognized on one of the benches at the ELS Military Monument site planned to be constructed in Mankato, MN on the Bethany Lutheran College campus. Any additional money that may be sent in for the Benson Bench will be forwarded to the Mil. Mon. project in general. If you have not contributed to this worthwhile tribute to our US military veterans, you may wish to do so by visiting our ELS website (www.els.org, go to the “About” heading and click on Military Monument). While many monuments and statues are being assailed throughout the country in the name of anarchy, the ELS is seeking to erect one, since we value the God-given vocation of those who serve us in the US military, providing us peace and security from any and all enemies. A matching fund for the project in general is being currently assembled, if you wish to join that effort of a challenge match please speak with Pastor Obenberger, chairman of the ELS Mil. Mon. Cmte.

ELECTRONIC GIVING:
Parkland Lutheran Church has a convenient way to make your regular offerings. With our electronic giving program, you can easily set up a recurring giving schedule or make one-time contributions. Click here for more information.

  1. This is optional; the old system of contributing by check and cash still works.
  2. Members can still set something up through their banks so that regular checks are mailed in.
  3. If members choose this new option they might wish to consider still using their envelopes and indicate on them that contributions are given electronically (not necessary, but that way a young confirmation student sees regular contributions going into the offering plate.
