Lakeland Lutheran Church Witness, Outreach, and Mission Portfolio

 

By God’s grace we encourage all to

               Come and see

                           Stay and grow

                                    Guide and show.

 

 

We coordinate activities which welcome visitors and friends and help new members to connect with our membership and our mission.

 

Through Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) we support appeals in caring for refugees around the world and responding to disasters at home and abroad.

 

 We encourage support of our northern missions like Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots (LAMP) and On Eagles Wings as well as local missions like the Dr. Margaret Savage Crises Centre and the local food bank.
