The Youth Mission 2015 Car Wash Fundraiser was a H-U-G-E success!! Thank you to all the parents, contributors, and youth that helped and worked so hard to make this such a blessing! The Youth will be serving the town of Hurricane Creek. The town of Hurricane was named after Hurricane Creek, which was, in turn, named after a group of trees at the mouth of the river bent in one direction. A party of surveyors commissioned by George Washington noted the site appeared to have been struck by a hurricane, and the name just stuck. Locals pronounce the name “HURR-i-CUNN” so when visitors want to fit in, they are sure to make the distinction. Some areas of the town appear as if they still qualify for hurricane relief and our service to the residents will make them feel like they are getting the much needed assistance they have been waiting for. Many folks simply need a new paint job to spruce up their home. Other people desperately need access to their doors so they can get out of the house and enjoy the neighborhood.Read More

Our next ministry event is July 19th, 2015. Aboite Lutheran Church supports “The Caring Hands Ministry,” a Christ-centered ministry that serves the homeless of Fort Wayne each Sunday morning – with a worship service and a meal. This ministry gathers at Freimann Square when the weather is warm or at the Rescue Mission during inclement weather. Once a month, ALC participates by gathering at the church at 7:30am to prepare brown-bag lunches and deliver them downtown. Directly following the homeless worship service, we serve a hot meal and distribute the packed lunches. Volunteers return to Aboite by around 9:30am.
List of needed items:
Gloves/hats winter jackets
Candles and matches

The Institute was established with a primary aim to renew and further the discipline of intellectual formation (or “shaping of the mind”) within the local Christian community. The secondary aim of this institute is to create a welcoming environment that invites the skeptically-minded to engage in a productive dialogue on questions that emerge at the interface of religion and culture. Class is available on Sundays at 9:45 a.m and Mondays at 6 p.m.
