Providing for Needs, Sharing the Good News

 LMS Compassion Centers

Center4webThe mission field is not all overseas. It is also right here, in our own neighborhoods, where people are struggling and hurting and hungering for the wholeness Jesus brings.

This is the call the Lutheran Mission Society heard over 100 years ago, and the call that still drives LMS ministries today — ministering to the needs of the body with food, clothing and shelter; ministering to the needs of the soul with the Good News of Jesus.

LMS Compassion Centers exist for this purpose. There are currently nine Compassion Centers in Maryland and York, PA where over 500 people come daily for help with the physical necessities of life and for the nourishment of spirit that only Jesus can give.



John 3:16: (NRSV) For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.


John 10:10b-11 (NRSV) [Jesus said] “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”



 LMS Vision Statement

We will reach out, together with members of the body of Christ, to bring wholeness to people whose lives we touch, striving to meet the needs of an ever-changing world with the unchanging message of God’s love.
