Sharing a resource today. I’m happy to report a recent find: Lutheran Stock Photos! This website exists to help Lutheran churches and schools have high quality, appropriate public domain images at their fingertips. AWESOME! And it’s free!! (Donations welcome.)
As so often happens, a person had an idea and started a side project. Interest spreads and a great result happens!
An excerpt from the About page:
What Defines “Lutheran Content”
For the purposes of this site we define “Lutheran Content” in two parts.
First and foremost, Lutheran Content is any imagery that portrays Christian or Biblical concepts in a manner consistent with Lutheran teachings. (Specifically as taught by the ELS and WELS.)
This also includes photos which are useful for teaching and training in righteousness, engaging congregations in worship activities, and promoting church events. Images on the site should portray a theme, element, emotion, concept, or teaching which could be useful in a Bible class, sermon slide, liturgy projections, worship pamphlet, devotional book, church video, social post, or other church related media.
Fantastic! Spread the word! And if your congregation or school can benefit from Lutheran Stock Photos, praise be to God!
This site began as a side project and at the start, it’s unclear how popular it will become or how much it might cost to run. Income generated from ads may be used to help offset hosting costs. Donations to the site can be made through monthly or yearly subscriptions ($1.50/month or $10/year) and funds received will go directly towards the cost of maintaining the site. (Subscribing will remove the ads from your browsing experience.)
Hopes and Prayers
Our hope for this site is that it is a valuable resource to those who use it. Our prayer is that the Lord blesses your efforts, whatever they may be, to the glory of his kingdom.
Adding it to my free Lutheran Resources page right now! (I wish I knew how to classify all the great things I find. I think I’ll file this one under Digital Resources.)
