El Salvador Mission
Our Sister Church in El Salvador:
Christ Redeemer Lutheran Church
In June 2013, we officially started a partnership with Christ the Redeemer Lutheran Church in El Salvador. Through this partnership we will:
- Pray for the Salvadoran Lutheran Church, especially for the partnership relationship.
- Celebrate together significant and historical dates of the church in El Salvador and the Salvadoran people.
- Exchange documents about the current reality of the church and the country.
- Exchange and share visits from members and pastors to celebrations and joyful moments of the sister church.
