There are three months during the calendar year that LMSG-National recommends that the LMSG-Local and its Liaison distribute after the worship hour a printed, color handout. Each of the three months will emphasize a message that fits with one of our National Support Service areas. Those three areas and their corresponding months are as follows:
3rd Sunday in these months
February-Active Duty Support Month
July-Military Family Support Month
October- Veteran Support Mont
On any one of the three months, prepare a brief, typed announcement for your Pastor to read that alerts the members to the fact “that LMSG has an informational handout since this is being recognized throughout all of our participating WELS and ELS congregations as (for example in July) Military Support Month. Distributing the information are your fellow members who represent Military Families, John Quinn and Sally Drew.”
It is suggested as in the example above, that you have representatives of that particular group being highlighted be the ones involved in distributing the literature. Handing out the information after the worship service is more personal and less cumbersome for worshippers than inserting into the bulletin.
