Story of the Week
Every week we bring you a story about an LCA/NZ person, family, congregation or community that is a place where God’s love comes to life. (We can't always guarantee we'll be able to produce a video clip, but we'll try our best.)
Please help to spread the message of God's love in action among us, through us and for us.
Story of the Week is delivered to your inbox every week via LCA Notice Board.

LCA Notice Board
LCA Notice Board is under review. We'll be letting you know soon (via LCA Notice Board eNews) when it is back from holidays. In the meantime check out Stories of the Week you might have missed.
Thank you for promoting LCA events, ministries and services within your congregation and community. By doing this, you are helping your members feel connected to their wider Lutheran family. Let us know if this service is working for you (or not) and if there's anything we can do to make this an easier job for you. We'd also love to hear your bright ideas for promoting the great things God is doing in our church.
All the slideshows are 'set and forget'; that is, no mouse clicking required unless you choose that setting in PowerPoint.
You can use our complete slideshow as is, or delete any slides you don't want to display. Or you can simply copy/paste the slides of your choice into your custom-made slideshow.
Two versions of the slideshow come with Where Love Comes to Life, our LCA theme song, which will play automatically. In order to help people read the slides and not be distracted by the music, we've set the default volume to low. You can set it to medium or high in PowerPoint. (You won't hear any sound if you don't have the audio hooked up, of course.) We recommend that you do use a music version. It's a great way to encourage people to hurry into church – like a modern version of the church bell. Or, if you're playing the slideshow at the end of worship, Where Love Comes to Life is a wonderful tune to have people humming as they step out into another week of love and service in Christ's name. (Note that if you delete slides from the music slideshows, the music will run beyond the last slide.)
