A Lutheran school teacher who was unexpectedly furloughed. A school secretary struggling to afford groceries now that the office is closed. A pastor who can’t quite make the mortgage payment this month.
These are a few examples of the ordained, commissioned and lay church workers who could receive a special Soldiers of the Cross grant from The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) to help cover their expenses amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As of April 30, $321,452 had been distributed in 229 grants to workers across the Synod.
