Let’s applaud those who continue to create free Lutheran resources for the good of the Church! Thanks be to God! I’ll happily add more if you let me know about those from a resurrection- and means-of-grace-believing Lutheran perspective.
Denominational publishing houses, like Concordia Publishing House, frequently have free Lutheran resources on their site. Steadfast Lutherans has also created Steadfast in the Parish with their own collection listing freebies.
I may or may not post all the free Lutheran resources either entity publishes, due to lack of time. However, I do love to try my own hand at creating resources, so you can always contact me to see if I can find something for you or perhaps together we can get any needed resource made for the good of the Church!
