Dimes for Missions Sunday is the second Sunday of every month. Money received is designated to be split between Lutheran Heritage Foundation and Lutheran Island Camp. We receive an average of $500 annually.
The Board of Missions budgets for local missions, needs in our own church or community, and short-term missions, needs other than local. For local missions, we have supported “Mainstreet Living” on KBJR TV Channel 6 out of Duluth. Pastor Ziege has been one of the pastors on the service at 10:00 a.m. We have also contributed in the past to “Hunger No More”, a meal packaging event supported by the Board of Human Care. For short-term missions we are supporting Brooke Thorson’s ministry in El Salvador and in the past a missionary trip to Alaska and Pastor Bernie Lutz’s missionary work in South Sudan. The board also donates $150 annually to ICTV to support tv broadcasts.
Currently our board has only two members. We would welcome anyone who wishes to help in this ministry, even if it is for a short- term project and not a 3-year term commitment. Please talk with Mary Buech or Carla Taylor for more information about our board.
