Grant Dollars at Work: Iglesia Luterana San Juan Bautista

As we enter the 2020 GCS grant process (applications open 9/2/19), we share stories from our 2019 Grant recipients, which you can see on our Grant Dollars at Work page.

Iglesia Luterana San Juan Bautista


Since the beginning of the year, SJB has hosted two fundraiser events (Three Kings Day and Day of the children) and two courses on Hispanic Lutheran traditions (Christmas and Lent Hispanic Traditions) which were open to the public for a small fee. These events served as fundraisers and outreach to our community since all events welcomed the surrounding community. 

We expect an increase in membership since the fundraisers and the community meal have brought new families to our services and most have repeated their visits. We are hopeful for our future and the growth of Lutherans in the Hispanic community.
