Who We Are
Local Military Outreach (LMO) is a ministry designed to help enlisted military families, many of whom live at or below the poverty level or who lack the necessary resources to make ends meet. Once a month LMO provides supplemental food and clothing to families in need. In addition to our monthly events we host six major outreaches: Easter, Backpacks and School Supplies, Back to School Clothing, Winter Gear Clothing, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We also offer Financial Peace University for Military, a stewardship training course to empower service members. This course teaches everything from budgeting, paying off debt, college planning and other helpful financial foundations.
