Giving Tuesday

SPRING Giving Tuesday – May 2

Help Us Raise $22,000


We are in awe of the support! Over $24,000 raised!!!

Help Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center(LOMC) in Oregon, IL raise funds to help others experience sanctuary, community, creation and faith at LOMC!

Raising Outdoor Faith Experiences

Thankfully 2023 is shaping up better than 2022 but LOMC needs your help to not fall behind in helping everyone and every group experience God, nature and each other this year. With high costs, deficit budget and a slower-than-expected return to more normal guest numbers – LOMC can use your gracious help.

It takes about $30,000+ a month to maintain and operate LOMC. Despite diligently watching expenses, our outdoor ministry continues to face a very uncertain future without supportive people like you.

Thank you for helping LOMC continue to provide a successful outdoor ministry location!
