WNALC Mission Banks 2020-2021
The Women of the North American Lutheran Church Executive Council thank you for your continued faithfulness in supporting the general fund & the Mission Bank Program this past year. $8,132.00 was given to our two Mission Bank recipients for the 2019-2020 year; Lutheran Bible Translators & Bethesda Lutheran Communities.
Additionally, there were contributions to the North American Lutheran Church Disaster Response given by the members of the WNALC. NALC Disaster Response wishes to thank you for the generous contributions of $13,120 in gift cards from the Stuff the Tonka campaign for families impacted by disasters, 1168 flood buckets, 560 heath kits, 648 quilts, 275 school kits, 200 baby layettes & 800 Bibles.
The virtual gathering of the WNALC on August 4th voted to approve two Mission Bank recipients for the 2020-2021 year. The North American Lutheran Church Great Commission Society & the North American Lutheran Church Disaster Response were chosen by the delegates attending the gathering.
The Great Commission Society works to connect needs & resources within the NALC. These needs are for global workers in overseas settings, new mission starts & various needs of churches in the United States. Grants are given to help missions, pastors & churches spread the Gospel. We will hear more about these projects in future newsletters. If you want more information go to thenalc.org/gcs.
NALC Disaster Response is familiar to many of you already because the WNALC has supported them in the past. They send relief items, volunteers & funding to aid disaster victims in the United States suffering damage from natural disasters such as floods, storms & fires. If you need help from Disaster Response, or desire to help, contact Mary Bates at 740-509-1132 or disasterresponse@NALC.org
Thank you for your faithfulness & prayer in supporting the Mission Bank Program. We appreciate your continued support in offerings to the missions in the USA & abroad.
