Vernon’s worship extends beyond the walls of our church through our mission work. From youth to seniors, we are proud to make a difference in the world through the power of God’s love. As we are drawn more deeply into the abundance of God’s love, we long to share, generously with others. Our partnerships in mission are local, regional and international and not only help those in need, but unite us in common bonds of humanity.
A very special core mission team works diligently to provide our congregation these opportunities to give back. That team includes Pastor Molly and Shari Higgins.
Mission of the Month: Each month, 5% of our collections is given to a qualifying organization.
In addition, we donate another 5% of our collections are given to the Greater Milwaukee Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Our outreach missions in 2018 will be…
The Year of the Spirit
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit! (Romans 15:13)
We have selected your 2018 missions to concentrate on the Spirit. We’ve also been listening to our members who have stated that they would like to help more within our local community. Our church has a Benevolence Fund where 5% of our contributions go toward supporting our ELCA Synod, as we should, and the other 5% will go toward self-directed missions. We will continue to support above and beyond that 5% as you feel your passion stirs you with monetary funding, goods, and service donations.
Thank you for supporting your Vernon’s missions!
