Global Mission

 

Our Global Mission committee oversees a variety of efforts that proclaim the Gospel by Word and deed throughout the world.

 

Grace Missions, Port-au-Prince, Haiti

chez moi

Faith church, together with five other Lutheran churches, is involved in supporting Grace Missions in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. This mission encompasses two ministries:

  • Grace Orphanage for Girls provides 20 orphaned girls with Christian love, food, shelter, medical care, K - 12 education, and vocational training in a safe environment.
  • A scholarship fund underwrites university educations for four young men. 

Mission trips. Week-long missions trips to Haiti are conducted once or twice annually in association with other sponsoring congregations. Two people from Faith church currently serve on the orphanage Board of Directors.

 

Donations can be made by writing checks to Faith Lutheran Church and designating Grace Missions, or by donating directly through PayPal on the Grace Missions website.  Help Sponsor a Chez Moi Girl.
