FORT WAYNE September 5, 2019 — Praise Lutheran Church has been selected for the 2019 Best of Fort Wayne Award in the Church category by the Fort Wayne Award Program.
Each year, the Fort Wayne Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category.  We were notified by Peter Bailey at the best-ofselection.org

        'We wanted to take a minute and thank everyone; families, friends, neighbors, etc who took the time to vote for Little Praisers in the Fort Wayne Newspapers Reader’s Choice Contest. The results are in. Drumroll please!!!!!! 🥁🥁🥁 Little Praisers was voted into the top 3 best childcare facilities in the city! We could not have achieved this without the support and love of the families and friends we have here at the center. Thank you all SO much for all of your votes, it truly means the world to all of us here!' This award for our preschool – Little Praisers – was awarded by the Journal Gazette’s Readers’ Choice.

  • Do you know a family or individuals who could use some help this Christmas?
  • Perhaps they could use some groceries, gas for their vehicle, clothes, gift cards,or perhaps clothes or toys for their children, and the list goes on.
  • God wants us to help others, and this is the perfect opportunity.

  Please get 3 items for each person you are helping. If needed, list sizes, and for children state whether it is a boy or girl and the age.

  The needed items will be put on tags, which will be hung on the Giving Tree. If you want to help out, you take a tag, or tags from the tree, fill out the information sheet by the tree and go buy the items needed. Gift wrap each gift separately,and attach the tag to the gift. Then bring the gift(s) to Praise and place under the Giving Tree.

  Please contact Sandy Wright (260-637-1132) by November 22 with information for the gifts needed. Be assured, this is kept private and I am the only one who knows anything about the recipients! 

  I look forward to working with this wonderful project to bless other people’s lives. Please pray that we at Praise can bring joy to someone we don’t even know.
