As Lutherans of faith, we are called to look beyond ourselves and to reach out to the world. Emmanuel Lutheran Church will assist our brothers and sisters, (globally, nationally, and locally) that are in need through words, actions, and financial support.

“Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality.”  Romans 12:13

Mission Objectives:

  • Through building relationships, nurture the physical and spiritual needs for those recovering from all forms of hardships.
  • Connect local, national and global organization with our resources.
  • Provide opportunities and at Emmanuel Lutheran Church that develop self-esteem and strengthen the ELC family.

With the resources that God has blessed Emmanuel Lutheran Church, the following are the projects and organizations supported. You are invited to join the Emmanuel Lutheran Church Family and “make a difference” by participating in these outreach activities.  Please contact ELC office for further information.
