Many Lutheran congregations were initially established in Canada to minister to immigrants from Europe. This tradition continues with multi-lingual congregations being established across Canada to reach out to new Canadians. Outside Canada, Lutheran Church–Canada missionaries can be found in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras, Thailand, and Ukraine, and the church actively supports specific missions of sister churches.
Our mission activities are also supported by three auxiliary organizations:
- Lutheran Women's Missionary League-Canada is an organization dedicated to providing educational resources so women may grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, preparing them to help others through service, and providing financial support to church projects in Canada and around the world.
- Lutheran Laymen's League assists the church by providing broadcast materials in various languages for use across the country. Its major projects include The Lutheran Hour, a half-hour radio broadcast heard on 70 stations, and seasonal animated television specials.
- Concordia Lutheran Mission Society provides financial and educational support to Lutheran Church–Canada's missions both in Canada and overseas.
LCC also works with Canadian Lutheran World Relief, which initiates development projects, assists Lutheran congregations to sponsor refugees, and coordinates emergency relief in response to needs around the world.
Funds contributed for LCC Missions and Social Ministry Services (MSMS) are confined to MSMS approved projects and programs. Each contribution given for a specific project or program is used for that project or program. If the need for that project or program has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by the MSMS, the remaining contributions will be used where most needed for other MSMS projects.
