Military Outreach Ministry

In the broader Tierrasanta community and neighboring Serra Mesa community, there are thousands of military families. Through our Military Outreach Ministry, Tierrasanta Lutheran Church will endeavor to welcome and support our military community by working with both the Murphy Canyon Chapel and the MCAS Miramar Chapel and their Chaplains. By addressing particular needs of our military neighbors, we hope to make a difference in the lives our ministries touch.

Children's Clothing Fair

Twice a year, we work with the Murphy Canyon Chapel to host a children's clothing fair to distribute clothing to military families in need. With the help of the congregation and Tierrasanta community, we are able to collect gently used and like-new clothing for our areas military children.

Military Food Distribution

In May and November, we host a food distribution for area military families. With the sponsorship of congregation and community members, we distribute 3 days worth of food in May, and in November a Thanksgiving Day meal, along with additional goodies.

Military Family Assistance Ministry

This ministry provides support to individual military families that find themselves in extreme situations and who have sought help through their respective Chaplain.  This support could be financial support for food or other necessities, transportation support, or possibly something else.  The goal is to provide whatever support necessary to enable the family to get through the situation they find themselves in and back on stable grounds.

Sharing the Joy!

Instead of an Advent event, we now team with Support The Enlisted Project (STEP) in their Sharing the Joy Adopt Family and Toy Drive.  MOC adopts at least one military family ensuring each member receives at least three presents from their wish list and invites others members to consider doing so.  Additionally, for the families that aren't adopted, the Toy Drive ensures that their children have Christmas presents.

Wreaths Across America

Wreaths Across America honors our fallen military buried at National Cemeteries, by placing wreaths on each grave at Christmas. While not a TLC ministry event, we support WAA by encouraging the congregation and anyone else to sponsor wreaths and take part with us in the laying of the wreaths prior to Christmas and the clean-up after the New Years.
