Partners in Ministry

The Partners in Ministry Designated Offering Program at Grace is one of the ways that we are Reaching Out in Christ's Love. Each month, we pass the plate for an organization that aligns with our Mission, and about whose mission our members and friends feel passionately. Our impact is doubled thanks to the Grace Foundation, who match every gift dollar for dollar, up to $2,000/month.

January 2023: Asylum Ministry Fund


Grace Lutheran Church has a long history of helping refugees and asylum seekers, and the Asylum Ministry Fund sets aside resources for direct aid to individuals in and around Boulder on a case-by-case basis.  At present, this fund is dedicated to providing support for Emmanuel Rusaka, who came to us at Grace in 2017 and is now in his 5th year as a pending asylee. Your donations contribute to his legal fees and education, and enable us to give his family in Congo stability during ongoing turmoil in that country.

 

Because of Emmanuel, we have an opportunity to live out what it means to be the family of God as we offer finances, prayer, and community to our brother from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

February 2023: ELCA World Hunger


Working through ELCA congregations, global companion churches, The Lutheran World Federation and other partners like Bread for the World, Church World Service, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and Lutheran World Relief, the ELCA reaches more places more effectively than we could ever do alone. In addition to funding relief and development projects that assist our sisters and brothers in need, we engage members of the ELCA in education and advocacy to help change the systems that perpetuate poverty.

 

Your gifts to ELCA World Hunger are making a difference. ELCA World Hunger helps reach communities most in need throughout the world. Our relationships in the U.S. and around the world create an infrastructure that allows us to be very cost-efficient and effective — less than 15 cents of every dollar is used for program administration and fundraising.

March 2023: Lutheran World Relief


Through Lutheran World Relief, you can deliver care and support to neighbors in crisis. Lutheran World Relief reaches families in desperate need around the world. In Turkey, our offerings will deliver critical aid like food, tents, sleeping bags and winter clothing. You can shine Christ's light into the lives of God's children in Turkey where so many are enduring life-altering crises. You will reach children, women and men with the care they need right now and in the months ahead, helping them endure immediate hardships and easing their suffering.

 



Below are the organizations we have contributed to over the past few years through our designated PiM Offering.
