Local Mission

 

God calls us to minister to our neighbor. One way to meet God’s challenge is through local mission programs that share God’s love, promote justice, and transform our community, as well as our congregation.

 

Sharing the Shepherd’s Love through Local Mission:

• Feed the Hungry

• Welcome the Stranger

• Clothe the Naked

• Visit the Sick and Imprisoned

• Work for Justice

• Work for Peace and Reconciliation

 

"If one of you wants to be great, you must be the servant of the rest; and if one of you wants to be first, you must be the slave of all. For even the Son of God did not come to be served, he came to serve and to give his life to redeem many people." (Mark 10: 43 – 45, Good News Bible)

 

Global Mission

 

ELCA Division for Global Mission

What is global mission? In Matthew 28:19-20 and many other biblical passages, God calls us to participate in God’s mission by sharing the good news of Jesus Christ in word and deed. "Global mission" refers to the way the ELCA responds to God’s call to mission outside the United States.

 

Missionaries

GSLC has supported Laurie Bushey, a former member who became a missionary to Haiti; Richard Witte, an Agricultural Missionary to Central African Empire for their Tractor Fund in 1980; Mark Nygaard, a former pastor from Minot who is a missionary in Cairo; and Debbie Jensen.

 

ELCA Disaster Response

Following a major disaster in some area of the world, the ELCA, through its international companions, seeks to minister to the urgent needs of those who have suffered. Funds are used for restoration of life and structures damaged or destroyed by major disasters such as floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, famine, and political and/or military conflict.

 

Central African Republic

The Central African Republic is a companion synod to the Western North Dakota Synod, ELCA. The Companion Synods Program establishes a relationship between the Western North Dakota Synod, ELCA and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Central African Republic. The program is an expression of the communion fellowship among member churches of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF). The Lutheran churches of the world consider their communion as an expression of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church.

 

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Shoe boxes are filled with items that a child would enjoy, such as toys, clothes, health items, etc. GSLC joined other local churches in supporting Operation Christmas Child in 2000.
