We are committed to reaching out to our community and the world with Christ’s love in many ways. Our Mission Team is one of those ways. Each year we have up to three mission trips traveling to different parts of the United States to help in rebuilding communities. In the past we have journeyed to The Navajo Lutheran Mission in Arizona; David, Kentucky; New Orleans; Biloxi and Ocean Springs, Mississippi; Greensburg, Kansas; Terre Haute, Indiana; Nashville and Waverly, Tennessee; Lewes, Delaware; and Staten Island, New York. We believe it is important for all Christians to touch others with the Love of God.
