LCA Story of the Week
When Rockingham Mandurah Lutheran Church, Western Australia, began a church-planting journey more than four years ago, they knew they couldn’t source all the necessary funding from within their community. But the Holy Spirit had things in hand, leading a small Adelaide Hills congregation to turn its own disappointment into blessings for God’s kingdom.
