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 40 pastors who together serve 94 different elder care facilities with weekly worship services. These elder care facilities are located across Lower Michigan. Total weekly attendance exceeds 1,000 people, many of whom are not WELS members.
