Help Promote LOMC

Help Us Share Our Ministry News

We want to make it easy for congregations, synods and other organizations to help us share the ministry experience LOMC has to offer. We hope our short (copy+paste) snippets and graphics will make it easy for you to share with the people you know and love.

Thanks for helping us get the word out!

RETREAT (Together) for Small Groups

RETREAT (Together) for Small Groups
LOMC has designed a safer experience for small groups to retreat in the outdoors. Bible study, prayer, planning and other retreats are available for your small group of children, youth, adults or families. Comfortable modern facilities with individual rooms and bathrooms in Freedom Tree Village and safer Retreat Cabins (with bunks using reduced capacity limits) can host your event. LOMC in Oregon, IL hosts groups of all kinds throughout the year. Visit to find out more about our RETREAT (Together) experience today.

LOMC COVID-19 Downturn

Donate To LOMC
Since the pandemic, LOMC cancelled summer camps and has seen 70-80% less guests. Despite receiving donations and a PPP loan in late spring 2020, funds continue to be depleted as we keep LOMC a vital place of safer ministry together. Your help has never been needed more to keep facilities cared for, grounds tended to, bills paid and staff on payroll. Without help from many sources, LOMC will need to make decisions that will limit the ministry greatly. Visit to find ways to help from Thrivent members to AmazonSmile and financial donations.
