1. Learn what your church does around the world. 

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) does mission work all over the world. The international work of the LCMS constitutes one-third of the Synod’s budget, and those resources come from LCMS members.

The LCMS International Mission Newsletter will show you how our Synod uses your support around the world. 

2. You don’t have to remember to visit our website. 

Remembering to visit a website for new content every month becomes tedious. Nearly 20 percent of Americans get their news primarily from social media.

So, rather than having to remember to visit the LCMS International website – and ensure you do not miss our Facebook posts – sign up for the email newsletter. 

Then you get it in your inbox – every month.

3. Know what to pray for in global Lutheranism. 

Knowing about the international LCMS work around the world will help you know what needs your prayers. LCMS partner churches all over the globe ask for and appreciate your prayers; they delight to know that you pray for them.

And, just as you pray for them, so also they pray for LCMS Lutherans in the U.S. and the Church all over the world. 

When you receive the LCMS International Mission Newsletter in your inbox every month, you’ll be reminded what petitions you can bring before God. 

4. Take the opportunity to support Lutherans all over the world. 

The LCMS depends on your support. This means our international partners benefit from your support as well. 

The international work of the LCMS happens because donors share what God has given them, and in doing so they participate in the mission of the church — share the Gospel all over the world.

The LCMS International Mission Newsletter will keep you apprised of this work. You will know what’s going on, you can encourage others to support this work, and you will participate in this support as well. 

This is a great opportunity to walk alongside our partners in the Gospel all over the world. 

5. Because you just should. Really.

This reason is short and easy: You should just sign up.
