Impacting the World
Salem Lutheran Church is an active mission-sending congregation. Our goal is to share the gospel message of Jesus Christ while providing lots of quality humanitarian work including dental, medical, vision, malaria prevention, and other service projects.
Jesus invites all of us, no matter our age, imperfections and all, to boldly step out of our comfort zones and take a risk to try new things and go new places and He said He would go with us and be with us forever. In our mission teams, we engage together in following Jesus’ example of “loving your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39) and “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).
Check out our current mission opportunities below. For questions about missions, contact Salem's Missions and Outreach Coordinator.
In March 2007, an advance team from Salem Lutheran Church traveled to Kenya to meet with Lutheran Church leaders to explore opportunities for working together to expand the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya (ELCK). Over the past decade, tens of thousands have come to know Jesus through the clinics. Over thirty LCMS churches have joined what is now known as “Vision for Africa.” Almost a quarter of a million Kenyans have had their sight improved with glasses and hundreds more have had their vision restored through cataract surgery. God continues to provide opportunities for us to restore sight to the blind and we are thankful to be able to serve as His hands and feet in Kenya.
