The next semi-annual general meeting of the United Lutheran Mission Association (ULMA) will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 7:30am – 1:00pm Central Time. It will be held at:

Pilgrim Lutheran Church
2155 N. Oakland Ave.
Decatur, Illinois 62526
(217) 877-2444

Be sure to call early to reserve a room in the area. You may find resources here.

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 noon 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.

All of the commission members are looking forward to meeting at one of our sister congregations. Not only does it afford an opportunity for fellowship with members and their families, but Pilgrim is having a special event that weekend. Click here.

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 following ULMA Member Congregations by Wednesday, April 17, so that we may plan accordingly.

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.
