Our Mission Focus
At Living Word Lutheran Church, supporting missions and community organizations is an integral part of our ministry. Financial support for mission work is a major portion of our general budget, and physical support involves numerous hand’s-on projects for both the local and the Tanzania Surgical Team missions. Our mission leadership team includes a designated representative for each mission who coordinates finances and project management.
