El Salvador Mission

 

Our Sister Church in El Salvador: 
Christ Redeemer Lutheran Church


In June 2013, we officially started a partnership with Christ the Redeemer Lutheran Church in El Salvador.  Through this partnership we will:
  • Pray for the Salvadoran Lutheran Church, especially for the partnership relationship.
  • Celebrate together significant and historical dates of the church in El Salvador and the Salvadoran people.
  • Exchange documents about the current reality of the church and the country.
  • Exchange and share visits from members and pastors to celebrations and joyful moments of the sister church.
We are exctied to see how God will work through this partnership to bring about the Reign of God!  Watch a video from our last trip to see Christ the Redeemer: 2013 Mission Trip Recap.
