Friday Inspiration from our President Dr. Lasharnda Beckwith. We learn from struggles and sorrows, but The Bible tells us to not be afraid!
Feeling good doesn't end with physical health; it takes mental health too. If you know someone who needs help with their Mental Health, please talk to us:
Congratulations to Rev. David Nagler who was elected fourth Bishop of the Pacifica Synod! Thanks to the outgoing Bishop, Rev. Dr. Andrew Taylor, for his service to Pacifica and us! We are blessed by the ministry of the Pacifica Synod and its involvement with Lutheran Social Services of Southern California.
Lutheran Social Services mourns with the community of Uvdale Texas over the tragic events that took place this week. We are praying for those who experienced unimaginable loss and heartbreak, that God would send peace and comfort; and we pray for those who persecute us, forgiving those who trespass against us as our trespasses have been forgiven. We look to our Healer and Shepherd as we navigate the trying aftermath.
Friday Inspiration from our CEO and President, Dr. Beckwith! As iron sharpens iron, one person sharpens another.
For #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth, let's help each other keep healthy minds. If you know someone who needs help, please talk to us:

Ambassadors are short-term volunteers who open doors for our organization in the community, introducing new people at our bi-monthly Fostering Community Care event. These are one hour awareness events only (no solicitations are made) to expose people to the great work of LSS Community Care. To become an Ambassador here are your responsibilities:
  1. 1 – Attend at least one Fostering Community Care event during the calendar year
  2. 2 – Host or invite and bring 10-15 guests to one Fostering Community Care event within 3 months of your attending one yourself.
  3. 3 – Inform your invited guests of what the Fostering Community Care meeting will be about, and let them know that they will receive a follow up call from the organization
  4. 4 – Ambassadors will complete their commitment after bringing 10-15 persons within the 3 month time period. An Ambassador has the option to complete after one term, continue for another 3 month term or move into another role on the team.
