Christ Lutheran Church - Marshfield, WI

Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

We get involved in and support several local and international missions throughout the year. Each month we tithe our General Offerings. $2500 goes to support our District and the Synod (which goes to Camp Luther, missionaries, Pastor education, and more). The remainder each month goes to another organization.

Here are the organizations we are supporting in 2021:

January - Hannah Center
The Hannah Center is a local place for women in crisis, especially for those facing crisis pregnancies.
 
February - Soup or Socks
A local food pantry.
 
March – Feed My Starving Children
Christian organization that relies on volunteers to put together food packs to send all over the world to feed children. It costs less than 25 cents a meal. A MobilePack event is usually held in Marshfield every Spring.
 
April – LCMS Disaster Relief
Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Fires. Floods. When disaster strikes, immediate response is crucial. LCMS World Relief & Human Care Disaster Response works with LCMS districts and RSOs to address both short-term and long-term needs of congregations, church workers and laypeople. Your support of the LCMS’ general disaster fund facilitates response when and where it is needed, across the country.

May – Shirley’s House of Hope
Shirley’s House of Hope mission is to rebuild, renew and restore the lives of women and children hurting from domestic violence along with alcohol and drug addictions

 June – Lutheran Bible Translators
Lutheran Bible Translators is a highly trained group of women and men working with church and Bible agency leaders to bring God’s Word to those who don’t yet have it.

July – KFUO and Issues, Etc.
KFUO is the official radio station of the LCMS. You can listen to it online. Programs include Bible Studies, current events, practical talk, and music.
 
Issues, Etc. is a ten-hour weekly syndicated radio talk show and podcast. The program features expert guests, expansive topics, while extolling Christ. The program is hosted by Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod Pastor Todd Wilken and produced by Jeff Schwarz.

August - VBS Mission Project
Every year we choose a mission to support with offerings brought in during Vacation Bible School.
 
- Adopt a Seminarian
As an Adopt-A-Student sponsor, you can help a future church worker overcome the greatest obstacle to enrolling at Concordia Seminary: affording it! Right now there are many students waiting to be “adopted.” In faith, these seminarians have come to Concordia Seminary to prepare for the service as pastors, deaconesses and missionaries. Now you can encourage them with your prayers and help make their preparation financially possible. The student we adopt will write to us and may even visit during the summer.
 
September – Operation Christmas Child
Every year we fill around 150 shoebox gifts that are sent all over the world to children in need. It costs $9 a shoebox for shipping and Gospel materials (written in the child’s own language).      
       
October –  Lutheran Women’s Missionary League
The first Sunday of October is LWML Sunday. The organization raises money for various grants that support missions all over the world.
 
- Camp Luther
Camp Luther is a year-round camp located in Three Lakes, WI. It is a ministry of the North Wisconsin District. Several of our youth attend every year and we occasionally have Confirmation retreats there.
 
November - Faith Comes by Hearing (Military Bible Sticks)
Just $25 provides a Military BibleStick (the Audio Drama New Testament and selected Psalms) for one of the Troops who protect our nation and preserve our freedoms.

            December – Social Ministries
Our Social Ministries group uses money raised each year to give to various missions and local families in need.
