Programs like Laundry Love, Becca's Closet and Park Players are how we serve as God's hands in our community. Your donation helps us reach out to those most vulnerable, right were we live. "...for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me." (Matthew 25:35-36)

Trivia Night 2022 was a huge success! We had 16 tables of players all vying for the unofficial title of "Rockford's Smartest Lutheran". We had a great time together and supported the important work of Rockford Area Lutheran Ministries. Thank you all for your support.

In addition to playing Trivia, people generously supported our silent auction. Over 30 items were donated by members and friends of RALM churches plus Rockford area businesses. Tempting Baskets were filled with books, special Ciders, Liqueurs, Cookies, Crackers, Apple, Orange, and Spice Nut Breads. Fresh ground Fire Department Coffee and Katie’s Cup coffee were a hit along with Children’s Wreaths, Ice Hog Tickets, and even Korv Swedish Sausage! Thank You for your donations and your purchases -- Together we raised

$834 in additional funds just from auction items – funds to help support our Lutheran Ministries.

Mark your calendar for 2023...RALM Trivia Night is traditionally held on the 1st Friday in November. That means we'll be back on November 3, 2023...start boning up on your trivial knowledge!

Thanks to an amazing group of volunteers (pictured above) we were able to make short work of moving the RALM offices to an amazing new space! The congregation of Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church has offered us space more suited to the growing agency that we are. Our new mailing address is:
