    Lent: Season of Hope

We invite you to partner with us this Lent and energize your congregation for global good.

This is an opportunity to show your congregation the impact they can make in the lives of poor and struggling families around the world.

As we walk through the season of Lent together, announce to the world that the Hope of Christ makes a new season possible – a SEASON OF HOPE.

Explore the tabs below to learn how your congregation can GIVE, ASSEMBLE, WORSHIP and PRAY with Lutheran World Relief this Lent.

  • Give
  • Assemble
  • Worship
  • Pray

Proclaim stories of what God is doing around the world to deliver a Season of Hope to a world of need. Sermon notes for your midweek Lenten services provide you with stories of lives impacted by your congregation’s partnership with Lutheran World Relief. Our online giving platform and seasonal resources will help you in directing your congregation's Lenten offering to Lutheran World Relief. Your generosity will help families in some of the world’s poorest communities discover greater stability and dignity.









Assemble Personal Care Kits for families in need around the world as your Lenten mission project.

Downloadable assembly instructions and signs, LWR’s Personal Care Kit Leader Guide and bulletin inserts (for Sunday and Wednesday services) are available to guide your congregation.


At your mid-week worship, share the story of what God is doing in the world through your congregation's gifts with our homily series.
On Palm Sunday, wave palms and deliver hope for the hands that harvested them: ECO-PALMS! The farmers who harvest, sort and package Eco-Palms are paid fairly for their work and use harvesting methods that protect the environment – and their future livelihoods – so they can escape the cycle of poverty. 2019 ordering dates and prices for Eco-Palms will be available in mid-December 2018.


“Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints.” – Ephesians 6:18 (NRSV)

Please pray for our brothers and sisters living in poverty that they may lift themselves up and find increased stability and dignity.

LWR has created a collection of weekly devotionals written by Lutherans in the U.S. and LWR staff around the world reflecting on their faith, which calls them to proclaim hope for those in need.
