In June 2013, Martin Luther Elder Care Ministries (MLECM) began the implementation of a new Elder Care Ministry in the Benton Harbor/St. Joseph area.
The Lord has certainly blessed this program. Today, the Elder Care Ministry includes 38 pastors who together serve 88 different elder care facilities with weekly worship services. These elder care facilities are located across Lower Michigan and includes two in northwest Ohio. Total weekly attendance exceeds 1,000 people, many of whom are not WELS members.
The mission of MLECM — MLECM exists to serve the spiritual needs of the aging with emphasis on those who are in care facilities or homebound. We will do this by working with congregations in Michigan and Ohio for the purpose of sharing the message of the gospel.
