Jesus said, “I came not to be served, but to serve….” — Mark 10:45
The primary purpose of our missions is to share the amazing grace of God — through word and deed — with others. When we offer ourselves in  service to others rather than just seeking to be served, the Spirit of Christ grows in us and through us, producing fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Here are some of the missions we are involved with at Living Lord Lutheran Church.
