Faith Lutheran has a long history of mission and outreach. Continuing in that tradition, senior high youth are preparing to answer God’s call to serve in Portland, OR in July 2018. The mission trip will focus on meeting needs of the marginalized through learning about social issues and working alongside others in social service organizations. Leading up to the trip the youth will be participating in a wide range of activities to lend perspective to what we will encounter there such as the Feed My Starving Children project in September.
Taking a group of youth to Portland is a logistical and financial challenge. To prepare for this trip, youth are participating in a wide variety of fundraising opportunities including bagging groceries at Cub Foods, interacting with customers at McDonald’s in Becker, and bussing tables at Pizza Ranch. The hope is that getting out in the community, sharing God’s love through providing a service while fundraising will continue to help prepare the group for the trip. While serving at these events our youth will be proudly displaying their commitment to the church family by wearing our “team” uniform: Faith Lutheran – Portland Mission Trip 2018 t-shirts.
To be sure, our mission trips have been made possible with the dedication and support of the Faith Lutheran congregation. These mission trips have positively impacted our youth. Ask any one of the previous mission trippers for a story about what the experience meant to them. You will hear great messages of God’s love at work. As in previous years, the youth will continue their efforts with craft and mitten sales. In addition, we are blessed that Stockholders have routinely donated generously. If you’d like to become a stockholder just look for the “envelope board” in the narthex of the church.
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” Isaiah 6:8
