The Lake of the Woods Church has a strong history of supporting missionaries and ministries. Our guiding principles for this commitment are Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8 and I John 3:17.

We define mission as the activity of the church to proclaim the Gospel and spread the Kingdom of God beyond its existing frontiers. Mission is a partnership of evangelism and social action, just as Jesus’s mission was a ministry of word and deed, evangelism and service.

The Missions Committee of the church is responsible for:

  • promoting knowledge and awareness in the congregation about missions and enhancing their passion and support,
  • supporting missions through financial contributions and personal relationships.
The church is committed to spending 10 percent of received offerings on mission. We provide financial support to 16 missionaries, eight local and eight international. Ten of these are designated as Partners and receive increased financial and relational support.

A brochure, titled Around the World, is available which provides more details on the activities that we support.

The Missions Committee also conducts an annual joint adult and youth mission to Navajo Nation in New Mexico. There are on-going opportunities for volunteer service with the Missions committee of our church.

Contact the Elder for Missions or one of the committee members through the church office for additional information.
