Mission of the Month – May 2017

FIL High School Youth Servant Events

Our May Mission of the Month is the FIL High School Youth Servant Events. This summer they will go to Lutheran Island Camp to help condition cabins, update trails and other work so that camp counselors can focus on sharing Christ with the campers.

Please consider a donation to support their work through this month’s Mission of the Month.

Local Mission Opportunities

Women of our congregation who support missions around the world. This group meets the second Tuesday of each month.
Twice a month, the first and third Tuesday, groups from FIL help serve meals to men, women and children that come looking for help. We travel as a group from FIL, leaving at 3pm, returning by 6:30pm. You may be called upon to serve the main meal, desserts, and occasionally help in the kitchen. Close-toes shoes, conservative dress and a willingness to selflessly serve are the only requirements!

The Saukville Community Food Pantry was started with several religious and community organizations to fill a need for food in Ozaukee County.  Assistance is needed on distribution days, stocking and organizing the pantry and delivering donated food collected at FIL and ROL to the pantry.
Refuge House is truly “a place of refuge” where women and children who have no place to  reside as they prepare for the birth of their babies.  The live-in houseparent provides a loving and caring family atmosphere where moms can learn parenting and life-skills, further their education and acquire job skills.  Most importantly, the mothers have the opportunity for regular Bible study, prayer and worship so they can grow in their walk with the Lord. Many opportunities are available at the home and the Blessed Again Resale Store that supports this ministry.

This was the third time we have visited this wonderful country to work side by side with Pastor Solomono Salam Ayagri, his family, and other church workers to reach more Ghanaians with the saving message of Jesus Christ. Our work will included Gospel outreach to children and adults, malaria net distribution to remote villages, and some light construction work.  If you are interested, please contact Karl Roeske, Director of Missions at kroeske@fils.org
