ULMA Spring Meeting March 19th

The next semi-annual general meeting of the United Lutheran Mission Association (ULMA) will take place on Saturday, March 19, 2011 from 7:00am – 1:00pm Eastern Time. It will be held in the Hamilton Room at:

Holiday Inn Cincinnati Airport Conference Center
1717 Airport Exchange Blvd.
Erlanger, KY 41018
(859) 371-2233

If you arrive early the day before, the hotel is located just 13 minutes from the Creation Museum for those that wish to visit. The hours of the Creation Museum are 10:00am – 6:00pm (M-F) and 9:00 am – 6:00 pm (Sat.). A relatively thorough tour of the museum can be completed in three to four hours. The address is 2800 Bullitsburg Church Road, Petersburg, Kentucky (7 miles southwest of the Cincinnati Airport).

As in the past, we anticipate visitors from congregations who are interested in supporting ULMA as well as those who wish to establish mission congregations. This is your chance to meet us in person and find out more about our mission work. We will have an informal Question and Answer (Q&A) session at 11:30am where ULMA members will talk about the organization, outreach, mission plans, and anything else of interest to those in attendance. We will adjourn early in the afternoon to allow adequate time for attendees to return home.

Past visitors have commented on the benefit of attending our meetings in person. It provides the best opportunity for exchanging ideas, fellowship, and getting to know the ULMA members and pastors. However, we understand how distance and lack of resources can limit travel to our meeting sites. There are other options available. Anyone interested in participating as an observer at our next meeting and/or Q&A session should contact one of the ULMA Member Congregations by Wednesday, March 16, so that we may plan accordingly. Our member congregations are:

Pilgrim Lutheran Church (217) 877-2444
Redeemer Lutheran Church (586) 294-0640

Keep an eye on our news releases and website for updates as we approach the meeting date. Our website address is:

We look forward to seeing you at our next gathering as the United Lutheran Mission Association continues to move forward in spreading the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord, LCMSsermons.com, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

More of his work can be found at KNFA.net.
