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.

Korean Ministry

We are continuing this Mission of the Month (MotM) through August.

A Lutheran ministry to serve the Korean immigrant community with the Word and the Sacraments began in the late 80’s at Trinity Lutheran Church in Toronto, and was named “Toronto Korean Lutheran Church”. Since then, the congregation has been dedicated to proclaiming the Law and the Gospel in their native language. In 2014, the church formed a dual parish with “Holy Trinity Lutheran Church” in Bradford, Ontario, and they called Rev. Sam Choi as their shared pastor, and are being served by him.

Bringing the gospel to people in their prayer language has always been important to the church. Lutheran Church-Canada does this in various ways across our synod. One such language group is Korean. We have two ministries that focus on Korean outreach. The first is a dual parish in Toronto and Bradford. The Toronto Korean Lutheran Church and Holy Trinity Lutheran Church are served by Rev. Sam Choi. In Vancouver, Rev. Sanghun Kim serves the Korean community through Faith Lutheran Church in Surrey. The primary purpose of this mission is to bring people into the sacramental life of the church where they receive God’s gifts on a regular basis. Please pray for this ministry.
