Mission of the Month
“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith”
Galatians 6:10

The purpose of our Mission of the Month is to increase awareness of individuals and organizations that are part of the LCC synodical family, performing mission work locally, across Canada, or around the world. We may also include some organizations that are part of our community which share the gospel and serve the needy.

Each month we will feature a different mission highlighting the work our church body is doing and giving our members an opportunity to engage with and support with time, talents, and resources. If you would like to support any of the monthly missions, you can give through normal Saint James offering options indicating “Mission of the Month” or give directly to the mission organization using the information provided.

Mission of the Month support is intended to be in addition to regular offerings. Together with all other congregations across Synod, our congregation already uses a portion of all offerings to support the work of Lutheran Church-Canada. We hope and pray that as we are blessed, we continue to be a blessing to others.

May’s Mission of the Month – LCC French Ministries

Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC), through the supervision of Missionary-at-Large, Rev. Dr. David Somers, actively carries out Word and Sacrament ministry throughout Quebec in Montreal, Saint-Jean-sur Richelieu and Quebec City. During these Covid times, our brothers and sisters in Christ in Quebec have responded in prayer and faithfulness to God’s word.

LCC is able to better reach French-speaking Quebecers and francophones throughout Canada with the French equivalent of the Lutheran Service Book titled Liturgies et cantiques luthériens. It contains hymns, psalms, and Divine Service settings like its English counterpart, but also features hymns unique to the French language. In the past decade the hymnal has become the standard Lutheran hymnal for many of the growing number of Lutheran churches in francophone countries.

A second significant contribution to ongoing French ministry on the world level is the ever-evolving website www.egliselutherienne.org. The website serves as the world’s largest gathering point for the rather scarce French-language Lutheran resources, be they liturgical, doctrinal, catechetical, or devotional. LCC’s French Ministries also works hand-in-hand with Lutheran Hour Ministries-Canada in the development of additional French-language materials.

If you would like to support LCC’s French Ministries, you can donate through LCC’s online donation website using the donate button below or through Saint James. Please mark your donations LCC French Ministries.
