Hosanna-Tabor Lutheran Church proclaims Jesus Christ as the risen Lord and Savior. In accordance with the scriptures we reach out and share the message of Christ with the community around us through worship, Christian education and social ministries.
While our primary mission field is our community of Western Wayne County, Michigan, we also reach out to the world around us through various missions efforts. Below is a summary of some of our activities.
Seminaries and universities of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod - Hosanna-Tabor helps to train workers for the harvest field by conducting food drives and giving financial support to the Concordia universities and seminaries. Specifically Hosanna-Tabor has sent 38 sons and daughters of the congregation into full-time ministry. There have been 12 pastors, 24 men and women called to the teaching ministry, 1 deaconess, and 1 lay minister.
