Christ Evangelical 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 2022:

January - Hannah Center & Veteran’s at King
The Hannah Center is a local place for women in crisis, especially for those facing crisis pregnancies.

The Wisconsin Veterans Home at King is a long term and rehabilitative care facility caring for veterans, a veteran's spouse, the surviving spouse of a veteran, and Gold Star Parents (parents who have lost a son or daughter in combat).

Total: $1364 to Hannah Center and $1364 to the Veterans
 
February – Immanuel Lutheran School (Marshfield)
Quality, Christian Education right here in Marshfield.

Total:  $1089 to Immanuel

            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.

Total: $2796 to FMSC

April – LCMS Missionaries
The main priority of a missionary is to bring the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ to people who have never heard the Good News. LCMS missionaries usually share that Good News in the language of the people they serve. When the Holy Spirit begins to gather people into Christian fellowship, missionaries assist these new Christians in forming their own indigenous church leaders.

We will be supporting Rev. Matthew Wood who is serving in Indonesia. You can find out more about him and his work here.

            May – LCMS Ministry to the Armed Forces
The LCMS Ministry to the Armed Forces supports all LCMS chaplains who serve on active duty, in the reserves, the National Guard, Civil Air Patrol, and Coast Guard Auxiliary. LCMS chaplains deliver Word and Sacrament ministry to our military personnel and their families.

            June – Soup or Socks and St Vincent DePaul Outreach
Soup or Socks is a local food pantry.
St Vincent DePaul Outreach has food and clothing help, a free medical clinic and fellowship meals.
           
July – Shirley’s House of Hope and Lutheran World Relief

Lutheran World Relief helps those in need around the world, especially those who have been displaced by war and natural disaster. One way they do this is by sending quilts and kits (hygiene, baby needs, school needs, etc). A member of our Church makes quilts every year. Money raised will help with shipping costs for the quilts and kits.  

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

                        - Last Sunday - VBS Mission Project
Every year we choose a mission to support with offerings brought in during Vacation Bible School.

August - 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! 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 –  1st Sunday – 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 – Mission and Outreach Fund
Money from this month will be used for needs and mission opportunities as they arise next year. Everything from helping local families and organizations to national and international needs.

Guatemala Mission Trip

Our first international mission trip was to Guatemala in 2017. We returned in 2019.
