Major Gifts from Odyessy Group Foundation and LCMS Atlantic District

Bishop Dien Taylor (right), LCMS-Atlantic District, presented Interim Co-Executive Directors Elizabeth Geiling and Tom Taylor a grant check for $30,000 from the Odyessy Group Foundation. Special thanks to Pauline Flowers, an Odyessy staff member and advocate for LCC’s ministry.

LCC is pleased to announce reception of an additional gift of $25,146 from the Atlantic District, itself. This generous and surprise gift is due to the District’s collection of funds to support our counseling ministries. Specifically, this gift recognizes that – in the aftermath of COVID-19 – recovery efforts are an ongoing need for many people whose recuperation is long term..
