GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOOD NEWS TO ALL CREATION. | MARK 16:15
Everyone Has A Role in Outreach
Outreach isn’t just for missionaries or for church staff members. It’s everyone’s job to follow Jesus to the ends of the earth by making disciples. Maybe your health or stage of life won’t allow you to go on a trip- then pray for a team or help through financial support. Maybe you have the time to go, but you’re not sure you can afford the cost- then sign up below and pray that someone at Faith Lutheran Church will help send you. Everyone can join God’s mission!

Our Key Focus Areas
Jesus had a heart for people; He met the physical need before addressing the eternal. As we reflect on the needs of communities around the world, we see that several are caught in cycles preventing them from hearing the Gospel. Their physical, immediate needs consist of clean water, food, and the ability to provide for their family. In meeting the most basic needs of those we serve, we earn the right to share God’s love. By educating locals, teaching hygiene, providing access to clean water, establishing sustainable businesses, and creating jobs, we become a community of transformation.
