2019-2021 Mission Grant 10
Ministry in Motion at Trinity in Mobile, AL
Trinity Lutheran Church, Mobile, Alabama
Trinity Lutheran School, modeled after the ministry of Rosa J. Young, has remained a stronghold of Christ centered education in a community dealing with inter-generational poverty and the challenges of urban living. Today Trinity serves 200 students from infants through fifth grade, and reaches another 45 students daily from four public schools through its afterschool program and Good News Bible Club. Daily prayer, chapel, and devotions help children, many from unchurched homes, develop spiritually in knowing God loves them. Grant funds are needed to purchase a handicapped accessible church bus for school children, elders, neighbors, and church members to participate in church and school ministries.
WHEREAS, Christ has called us to be servants to one another, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”(Mark 10:45). And “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”' (Mark 12:31); and
WHEREAS, Trinity Lutheran Church and School, modeled after the ministry of Rosa J. Young, is serving an impoverished community with proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ and teaching with a Christ centered Gospel to educate children to prepare them for a brighter future; and
WHEREAS, Funds are needed to purchase a handicapped accessible sturdy and well-built church bus for elders, school children, neighbors and church members to participate in church and school ministries on and off campus; and
WHEREAS, our current vans are 15 years old and difficult for elders and children to safely board and ride, and the community we serve needs transportation; therefore be it
RESOLVED, that the delegates gathered at the 2019 Lutheran Women’s Missionary League Convention in Mobile, Alabama, vote the sum of $58,000 to help fund Ministry in Motion.
