outreach missions

Some of the ministries we support extend our reach, in order to share the love of Christ and the Gospel message

beyond our local community or bring the Good News to those who would otherwise not be able to hear it.

Some of these mission endeavors involve our direct efforts and time commitment

and others require gifts of time spent in prayer or sacrificial giving.

    Meeting International Needs with Warm Quilts

    This group of quilters meet in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday mornings, September through May, to cut and assemble quilts from donated and purchased fabrics, which are sent twice a year to Lutheran World Relief for distribution.

  • sunday school missions   

    A  Shared Mission Project Every Year

    Each year, the Sunday School classes dedicate the weekly offerings to a special project to support our brothers and sisters outside our local area.  We have purchased bicycles for pastors in Africa, cows and chickens to help support needy families, helped build homes for mothers and kids in poor communities and improve water systems.   Last year we are partnered with World Vision to provide families with 109 chickens for nutritional and income producing opportunities.

    Sharing the Good News with Friends and Neighbors

    Summer VBS week is a blessing for many kids and families.  2017 VBS was held July 17-21. The theme was Operation Arctic, "Exploring the Coolest Book on the Planet". Check back here next spring for the date and plan to come for fun and learning about Jesus, and bring your friends, too!  All children are welcomed, encouraged and celebrated as individuals and part of God's family. See a few photos from this summer's VBS below.
