Mission Projects

Each year the students at Redeemer Lutheran School support various mission projects.

Chapel Offerings:This year our chapel offerings are going to the following missions:

Quarter 1:  LCMS Missionary Jamielynn Tinkey

                         Our Chapel offering for the 1st quarter is going to LCMS missionary Jamielynn Tinkey. Jamielynn is going to serve the LCMS in the Dominican Republic using her skills as a nurse to teach those in the community to better understand good health and hygiene habits. She will also visit Lutheran and local health clinics providing assistance and support. Throughout her ministry serving the Dominican Republic community, she will build relationships and share the Gospel with others. A little background about Jamielynn is that she is an Indiana native. She is from Warsaw, Indiana and her home congregation is St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School in Bremen, IN. In her spare time, she likes to read, listen to music, and go on bike rides. Please help us support Jamielynn in her ministry serving in the Dominican Republic with her talents and skills as a nurse. Pray for her as she ventures out while adjusting to her new surroundings and pray that the Holy Spirit will work through her to share the Gospel with all who she encounters.                                                

Quarter 2:  COMFORT DOGS

 Our second quarter offerings will be donated to the Comfort Dogs of Portage, Indiana.  Comfort Dogs is a ministry of Lutheran Church Charities.  It is golden retrievers and their owners who bring comfort, compassion, hope for people who are hurting and need emotional support.   They visit schools, churches, nursing homes, local groups, and communities that have had tragedies such as shootings, floods, hurricanes, etc.

The dogs provide opportunities to witness to people about Jesus.  These dogs have an instinct to know when people are hurting, so they can help bring Christ to those who do not know Him, and strengthen those who do know Him.  They bring mercy, compassion and God’s presence to those in need.


Quarter 3:  Heifer International

For our 3rd Quarter Chapel Offering, we will be raising money for Heifer International. This is a Christian organization that is working to fight poverty and hunger by providing sustainable resources. With the money raised through our offerings, we will be able to select different animals to provide for communities in need. Some of these animals include goats, llamas, sheep, pigs, honeybees, chickens, rabbits, and ducks, just to name a few. For more information on this organization, please check out www.heifer.org.


 Quarter 4:  Future Church Workers (LCOR)

This year, the fourth quarter chapel offering will be going to support future church workers, including pastors, Lutheran school teachers, and Directors of Christian Education (DCE). We will be supporting students from Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer who are pursuing a career in church work.
