Bishop’s Message

“I was in prison and you visited me.”
“As you did it to the least of these who are members
of my family, you did it to me.”

The invitation couldn’t be any stronger. And the Montana Synod is responding to the invitation with the Freedom in Christ project, committing ourselves to starting and supporting a congregation within the Montana State Prison (MSP) at Deer Lodge…I visited MSP in August (2010), and preached at a service provided by Lutheran volunteers. I saw the hunger for the Word, and the eagerness to gather for Word and Sacrament more than once a month. We want to make that possible.  And we need your help. We need your prayers. And we need you to volunteer. And we need you to pledge your financial support…I ask you to commit to long-term support so that together we can support “the least of these, who are members of my family.”
