Please Support Dacotah Oyate Lutheran Church Fundraiser
"And taking the five loaves and the two fish, [Jesus] looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces" (Luke 9:16-17).
As part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's (ELCA) response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our congregation is partnering with ELCA World Hunger to raise funds for our feeding ministry through a Daily Bread Matching Grant.
We need your help to make sure we generate the maximum amount of support for our neighbors during this difficult time. ELCA World Hunger is kickstarting our fundraiser with a $500 grant. With your help, we can raise $500 or more to match the grant from ELCA World Hunger. We have until Sunday, November 22nd to meet our goal. Every gift truly makes a difference — thank you for your support!
Dacotah Oyate Lutheran Church is an ELCA American Indian ministry and is located on the Spirit Lake Nation in North Dakota. The Congregation is almost 100% Dacotah. We have 1 Hispanic and 2 Hawaiian children as members of the congregation.
Dacotah Oyate Lutheran Church is a congregation of 92 baptized members serving the 7,500 member Spirit Lake Nation near Tokio, ND. Dacotah Oyate is a ministry with a functioning congregation council and is part of the Eastern North Dakota Synod.
Dacotah Oyate ministers to all of Spirit Lake and not just to any one community, district, town or congregation of the reservation. Dacotah Oyate’s goal for outreach is community relationships. Everything is relational in American Indian communities. Our focus is to reveal Christ’s love to people that have been made to feel less than or not good enough for God to love, or even to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ with an emphasis placed on our personal relationship with God thru Christ.
What is raised here will help to benefit those most in need on Spirit Lake. These will be large multigenerational families in a single family unit, Elderly, single parent and children.
