LWML RMD Mis­sion Grant Recip­i­ents for 20172018

The Rocky Moun­tain Dis­trict of the LWML (Lutheran Women in Mis­sion) has pledged mis­sion grants to two recip­i­ents for the 20162017 bien­nium. Here’s some infor­ma­tion on those orga­ni­za­tions and what they do with the money from LWML!

Siber­ian Lutheran Mis­sion Soci­ety

Imag­ine liv­ing in a place where Chris­tian­ity was out­lawed for so long that entire gen­er­a­tions of believ­ers never had a pas­tor. Today’s Siber­ian Luther­ans come from a long line of faith­ful ances­tors, but for much of their own lives Chris­tian­ity has been out­lawed. There are so few churches in such a large geo­graph­i­cal area that the pas­tors that serve God’s peo­ple here often travel hun­dreds of miles, cross­ing sev­eral time zones, to get from one con­gre­ga­tion to another.

Today the Siber­ian Lutheran Mis­sion Soci­ety is work­ing to help sup­port our broth­ers and sis­ters in Christ in Siberia. Funds are raised to pur­chase Bibles, VBS mate­ri­als and altar wares, as well as sup­port the pas­tors that serve these remote loca­tions. No Russ­ian church bod­ies sup­port the Lutheran Church in Siberia, so any help from fel­low Luther­ans is appre­ci­ated. The mercy work involved is also sup­ported by our prayers and gifts, help­ing the pas­tors share the Word of God and care for their flocks in body and soul.

Please keep our Siber­ian Lutheran broth­ers and sis­ters in your prayers, and con­tinue to sup­port the col­lec­tion of our Mighty Mites, which are help­ing pro­vide trav­el­ing funds for these pasors to reach God’s peo­ple in this remote place.

The Table at Beth­le­hem Lutheran Church, Lake­wood, Col­orado

The Table min­is­ters to the work­ing poor and home­less in the Lake­wood area. Every Thurs­day evening vol­un­teers pre­pare and serve a meal that is fol­lowed by a con­tem­po­rary wor­ship ser­vice and time for Chris­t­ian fel­low­ship. They serve an aver­age of 85 peo­ple a week. Pas­tor Ross has been teach­ing on Philip­pi­ans in his ser­mon series, which leads to more dis­cus­sion dur­ing the fel­low­ship time. This out­reach has resulted in one con­fir­ma­tion and one marriage!

While the space for the ser­vice and the meal is in the Beth­le­hem Lutheran Church Com­mons area and most of the vol­un­teers that lead the ser­vice, and pre­pare and serve the meal are mem­bers of Beth­le­hem, the church is not able to pro­vide all of the needed finan­cial sup­port for food and wor­ship mate­ri­als. Before the LWML RMD grant, the $150 per week food cost was funded by dona­tions from atten­dees and local sup­port­ers. As atten­dance increased, these funds were becom­ing insuf­fi­cient. The vol­un­teers and atten­dees are very grate­ful for this mis­sion grant!

Please keep The Table in your prayers as you drop coins in your Mites box.

Fun Food Fundrais­ers for Mis­sions

Dur­ing Lent the Heseders will be pro­vid­ing two evening meals:

Chili Cook-​off: Wednes­day, March 8

Last year we had a great time try­ing lots of vari­eties of deli­cious chili donated by our con­gre­ga­tional mem­bers. We will all have a bet­ter chance of win­ning since the Maxwells moved! We miss them but they always won! To enter, just bring your amaz­ing chili to the Large Fel­low­ship Hall by 5:30 PM. We will begin sam­pling at 5:45 with votes in and three win­ners announced a lit­tle after 6:00. All three top cooks will receive a gift cer­tifi­cate from The Cupboard.

Pan­cake Sup­per: Wednes­day, March 22

Come for an all-​you-​can-​eat Pan­cake Sup­per from 5:45 to 6:15 PM. Sue and Nelly will be serv­ing up tra­di­tional as well as whole wheat and gluten-​free pan­cakes. There will be more top­pings and types of syrup than you will have time to try. Cof­fee and drinks will be pro­vided as well as sausage (hope­fully Rox­Ann will leave some for every­one). We know you will enjoy this breakfast-​for-​supper extravaganza!

The Board of Human Needs finds oppor­tu­ni­ties for the mem­bers of Saint John’s to pro­vide a Chris­t­ian wit­ness by help­ing peo­ple in the com­mu­nity strug­gling with daily necessities.

March LWML Mis­sion Grant

Here’s what the LWML’s mites and other fundrais­ing efforts will go toward in March:
