Mission Of Hope - 3rd Monday of each month

St. John is committed to supporting the Mission Of Hope in Cedar Rapids, preparing and serving a meal on the 3rd Monday of each month, as well as delivering donations of food for their pantry, clothing for their closet, and labor for the various tasks in need of completion as the opportunities arises.

Sign up for the monthly service opportunity in the North Narthex, or contact Joe Wallace.  You may also contact the Mission of Hope directly for other opportunities.

MISSION CENTRAL

Mission Central is the largest mission supporting agency, as a part of the Missouri Synod's LCMS World Mission Global Gospel Outreach.

Mission Central has been blessed by God to be the conduit helping to raise millions of dollars every year to send and keep LCMS World Mission Missionaries in the field.

Since 2003, Mission Central has had hundreds and hundreds of visits from LCMS missionaries and their families  (many have come several times) and has had tens and tens of thousands of people from hundreds of congregations visit.  To learn more about Mission Central, visit their website.
