Uruguay

  •  Country Summary
  • The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Uruguay in 1960.

    In 1993, the LCMS began mercy work support in Uruguay with a grant to upgrade the sanitation system in a church and school.

    The LCMS periodically supports various projects in support of the national Lutheran church in Uruguay. The LCMS partners with a Lutheran congregation in Montevideo, Uruguay, to increase Lutheran outreach and mission.

    The LCMS' Recognized Service Organization, Children’s Christian Concern Society, also provides educational scholarships for students and teacher salaries at Lutheran schools in Uruguay.

     

  •  Missionaries
  • The LCMS partners with a Lutheran congregation in Montevideo, Uruguay, to increase Lutheran outreach and mission in the small South American nation of Uruguay. The mission in this city has the potential to reach many Uruguayans who have never heard the central message of the Gospel—that God offers them salvation through faith alone in Jesus Christ.

    Your support allows the LCMS to continue mission outreach in this country. If more funds than necessary are received towards projects in this country, the additional funds will be used to support ministry in the same region. If you would like more specific information about these projects and ministry in this country or region, please contact us at 888-THE-LCMS (888-843-5267) or infocenter@lcms.org.

The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
