MISSION

 

THE NORTH AMERICAN LUTHERAN CHURCH IS MISSION-DRIVEN

We believe that the mission of the church is to preach the Gospel and to make disciples for Christ.  We believe that making disciples--in our congregations, in our communities and nations and around the world--must be a priority of the church in the present age.

 

THEREFORE, the St. Peter’s Ev. Luth. Church mission committee’s mandate is to follow NALC’s recommendation to support mission work locally, nationally and internationally and comply with St. Peter’s mission by-law which, in part, states:

 

“Considering the anticipated income, the committee shall make recommendations to the Church Council as to mission projects which are to be supported and to provide background information and other rationale for their recommendations.”

 

St. Peter’s mission committee currently consists of seven members who meet regularly to discuss and, after prayerful deliberation, make recommendations for mission support projects to Church Council.

The following are the projects currently supported by St. Peter’s:

*NALC administration

*NALC seminary at Trinity School for Ministry

*NALC-Canadian Mission District

*Canadian Lutheran World Relief

*Malawi Orphanage Project (joint project with Joy Lutheran Church)

 Malawi is found in the south-eastern part of Africa.  It is one of the poorest countries in the world.

 The Malawi Orphan Care Project (MOCP) is a unique project which seeks to keep the orphaned

 children together with their relatives or others as a family unit and supports the family by supplying

 seeds/fertilizer, provides school supplies, pays school fees etc.  It also helps set up mini businesses                                 such as sewing, gardening etc. to enable families to earn money for their daily needs.  The project has

 constructed some buildings so children can gather for nutritious meals, Bible studies, sports etc.

 This past year, due to severe flooding during the growing season, St. Peter’s sent additional support so that orphans would have sufficient food during their winter.

*St. Aidan’s Christian School (a school in Winnipeg for immigrant children)

*In-house seminary tuition support

*Canadian Lutheran Bible Translators

*Sponsorship of a Christian refugee family from abroad

This mission project is in its early planning stage--a core planning group of congregational members is in place and will begin the process of applying for a refugee family.
