Looking for Mission Service Activities in advance?

Get Started with the January Ideas
Nurturing Faith in Christ
This is the month of resolutions – review what’s lacking in your spiritual life and resolve to improve it by spending more time in God’s word and in prayer.
Making Our Faith Meaningful
January is when we recognize Right to Life Sunday, January twentieth this year. Host a baby shower for a local crisis pregnancy center. You might also assemble New Mom and New Baby Toolkits to keep on hand when someone you know is expecting. Read more about the LCMS Life Ministry here.
EXTRA CREDIT: Have the shower at the center instead of your church and invite the community to participate.
Identify single mothers (or fathers!) who may need a helping hand. Ask them what they need most – babysitting, daycare, meals, etc. and then find a way to satisfy some of those needs.
