Ministries of Faith Lutheran Church
Nord Est Haiti Lutheran Mission (NEHLM)
NEHLM is a Lutheran, non-profit organization of Faith Lutheran Church with its headquarters in La Grande, Oregon, and co-sponsored with Lamb of God LCMS, Lake Stevens, Washington. NEHLM supports the ministry efforts of Reverend Daniel Paul, a Haitian-born pastor assigned to the position of Bishop of the Nord Est region of Haiti. The ministries are centered in Ouanaminthe, Haiti, a community of about 80,000 at the border of Haiti and Dominican Republic (DR).

Koinonia, Lutheran Women's Missionary League
Koinonia is Faith's chapter of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League. The word koinonia is taken directly from the Greek and means fellowship or joint participation. As a service arm of the church, the group gathers to do tasks that serve locally and abroad, from sending quilts to Haiti to serving meals at the church. The "mites" we gather regularly (loose change) is sent to our national body and joins others to do millions of dollars of mission work throughout the world--check the link below! We invite all women to join us; there is a project for everyone and joy in working together!
Local and Foreign Mission Projects
Faith Lutheran Church has mission projects in our community on a regular basis. Every other year Faith has a local project to help ministries in our Northwest District. On opposite years, Faith focuses on foreign mission projects. Our most recent Northwest District mission was for members of Faith Lutheran in La Grande and Enterprise, Oregon, in the summer of 2018. For one household we installed a chain-link fence for a backyard and for another we weatherized a deck. Faith's foreign mission is planning to visit the ministry of Rev. Daniel Paul, in Ouanaminthe, Haiti, in June of 2019.
