LWGP is a non-profit organization, whose members from the Lutheran congregations in the Peoria area are dedicated to supporting Lutheran Social Services of Illinois and Lutheran Senior Ministries.
In 1983, Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI), with the help of a small group of very dedicated women, opened the doors of what would become so much more than ever imagined.
The Church Mouse had its early beginnings on Wisconsin Ave., but within a few years relocated to the corner of Sheridan and Main. This was home for the Mouse for 23 years, until growth required them to once again make a move. In October of 2011 they moved to their present location.
Today the Mouse is supported by 26 Lutheran congregations and over 100 volunteers!
The Church Mouse is dependent on donations and makes the most of every item received. Any unusable donations are properly recycled, given to local organizations, or sent to other countries. They believe it is their responsibility to use and share these “gifts” to the best of their ability.
