& Change


March 11

Bring your

loose change to church

and help change a life.


It's that easy.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ calls us to look at our neighbor, our community, our State, country, and the world.  It is that last one that this ministry focuses on.

Advent Lutheran Church sponsors two African children through Compassion International.  One child is from Uganda and the other is from Burkina Faso.

It costs $928 per year to sponsor these two children.

Our support provides life-changing opportunities such as:

  • an opportunity to attend or stay in school

  • medical care, which often saves lives

  • nourishing food

  • mentoring and a safe environment through a local evangelical church

  • and most important, opportunities to hear the gospel.
