One of the stories behind this week’s Local Mission Partner (LMP) Sunday is Christ the King working with Redeemer Lutheran Church in north Minneapolis. Serving a diverse community, Redeemer sponsors a Christmas Store where children can pick out a donated gift for a family member, get help wrapping it and enjoy a simple lunch. LMP serves this lunch and enjoys interaction with the children and families of the Harrison neighborhood. This is one of the many LMP interactions with our Black, Hmong (Egg rolls today!), Chinese and Latine partners, along with Daily Work that helps immigrants find living wage jobs.
Today Pastor Sarah is preaching at Redemer and Redeemer Pastor Jen Collins is here as our preacher and adult forum leader. She will share the joys and challenges of working in their diverse neighborhood.
Today’s special LMP offering (over and above your regular offering) will go to partner with these ministries. Thank you so much for helping us join God’s mission in this changing world. We invite you to join in serving Redeemer’s Christmas Store on Dec.9 and even explore our LMP planning meeting the second Monday evening each month. If you are interested, call or email Dale Erickson for more information.
