All of Lutheran Ministry Services Northwest’s (LMSN's) ministry programs are an extension of local Lutheran congregations’ current ministries.  At times, congregations need an extra helping hand to meet the needs of its congregants and local community.  This is where LMSN is most useful.  LMSN provides the following types of ministry services to these congregations and communities:

  • Hospital Ministry: Pastoral and spiritual care with support and compassion.

  • Prison Ministry: LMSN is the coordinator for Prison Ministry in the Northwest District of the LCMS.  Contact us if for more information.   Phone 206-450-7128.  E-mail: lms@lmsnw.org
