On Sunday, September 15, Lutheran Family Services (LFS) will recognize those community leaders whose actions demonstrate their commitment to faith-based values and humble service. This year’s “Global Voices – Faith in Action” event will have a special focus on Nebraska’s widespread embrace of new populations and support for those seeking American citizenship.
Among the honorees this year: Roland Temme, Owner and Founder of TMCO in Lincoln, who will be recognized for setting a lifetime standard of humble servant leadership and for his tremendous commitment of time, talent and treasure into the lives of war refugees.
The event will also honor the United Way of the Midlands and the Benson Area Refugee Task Force. Attendees will be treated to a Global Bazaar, where some of the incredible artwork, crafts, music and dance of former refugees and other diverse populations will be displayed. The evening will also include a Procession of Nations–a colorful and dramatic depiction of the growing diversity of Nebraska–as well as dinner and award presentations. The event will be held at Embassy Suites, LaVista.
Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska is a 121-year old statewide human care organization which impacts thousands of families in the areas of behavioral health, children services and community services.
