  1. Mission Central (including 6 different missionaries)
  2. The University Lutheran Chapel
  3. Gleanings for the Hungry
  4. The Winnebago tribe
  5. Royal Family Kids Camp
  6. Home in a Box
  7. The work being done at King Lake
  8. The Human Care Fund (to help specific individuals that need assistance)
  9. Scholarships to Lincoln Lutheran and Messiah's school
  10. District and Synod Support
  11. Various scholarships (Clara Rich, future church workers, etc.) and support for mission trips
  12. Mustard Seeds/Days for Girls
In the comings weeks, we will highlight these different ministries and share the impact their having for Christ.
A Financial Report from Erik Borgmeyer

After the third week of September, we've received $140,634 in tithes and offerings.  That's just under $10,000 short of our tithes and offerings budget for this month.  This month, we've received  just over $88,122 toward the Forward in Faith campaign.  

Over 30 months of being in the Forward in Faith campaign, we've averaged over $80,000 per month in gifts.  We have 6 months remaining in the campaign and there are still a number of pledges that are yet to be fulfilled.  If you have any questions about where you're at with your pledge, please reach out to Erik

We did receive our first year-end gift today.  As we wrap up the final 3 months of 2020, please continue to be faithful to God with your tithes, offerings and gifts to Him through the ministries of Messiah.

To God Alone Be All The Glory!
