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.

July’s Mission of the Month – Lighthouse Mission

This month we bring to light a local mission in Winnipeg, the Lighthouse Mission.

Located at 669 Main St, Lighthouse Mission is a non-profit organization in the Point Douglas neighbourhood of Winnipeg’s core. As a registered Canadian charity and Christian agency, they partner with local organizations, churches, businesses and individuals to provide hope, support and encouragement to the material poor in such a way that restores dignity, community, stewardship, and spiritual intimacy with God. They are highly relational in their approach to poverty alleviation because they believe healthy communities can not exist unless the individuals in that community are experiencing healthy relationships with God, with others, with themselves, and with their environment.
