Emmanuel Lutheran Church supports missions within our community and around the world.  Our prayer is that, through our giving, the love of Christ will be made known - that many will hear and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  

Lutheran World Relief is used by our State Department because of their commitment to use volunteer help and their high efficiency in responding to disaster relief around the world.  Our quilters meet weekly to create beautiful quilts that are donated to local agencies and Lutheran World Relief, an organization that provides excellent humanitarian aid, disaster and emergency care.

Christian Aid Center:  The local Christian Aid Center provides compassion and restoration to those in need.  The Center is a ministry that offers hope through housing, food, and spiritual support through Jesus Christ.  Our congregation provides financial support through our benevolence budget.  Our adult and youth volunteers plan, cook, and serve meals on a set basis.

Helpine:  Helpline was established by our local congregations and it serves an important need.  Helpline serves as the front door to help the poor and homeless with food, clothing, furniture, prescriptions, transportation, utilities through direct assistance, screening and referrals to partner agencies.  Emmanuel Lutheran Church assists by providing financial support.  Our members also donate clothing, hygiene items, and volunteer time to support this cause.

Education:  We provide financial support for pastors and seminarians studying at the Institute of Lutheran Theology in Brookings, South Dakota.

Bible Translation:  To help the church with its world wide mission to "make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19) Emmanuel Lutheran Church provides financial support to Lutheran Bible Translators via assistance to a missionary couple who are bringing the Bible to people groups that do not yet have the Bible in their own language. 

Missionaries:  We provide sponsorship funds for families who are presently serving internationallly.  These are vetted and have local and relational connections to Emmanuel Lutheran Church. 

If you have a heart to serve there are plenty of ways to get involved.
