Operation Barnabas is a registered service organization of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod and is a network of care for the United States military members and their families. Special emphasis is placed on Reserve members and their families while reaching out to all components of the military. There are 1.4 million active duty members and 850,000 Reserve members. Reservists and their families don’t live near military bases and therefore don’t receive the support active duty members receive when they return from a tour of duty. This provides Operation Barnabas with an opportunity to reach out to those members who reside in our communities. “Operation Barnabas seeks to empower and care for our neighbors prior to and during their deployment, in addition to easing their transition back into the daily life in our communities upon their return.”


The Goals of Operation Barnabas:

  1. 1. The vision of Operation Barnabas is that every-military-connected person lives in the hope and peace of God’s love and mercy as revealed in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  2. 2.Called by Christ’s love, Operation Barnabas engages, empowers, and equips LCMS faith communities to provide hope, healing and support to military-connected persons living in their community.
  3. 3.Serve as a resource to other organizations that provide care to military families.

Operation Barnabas, the CLC March-April Mission-of-the-Month, has graciously supplied us with devotions geared specifically for members of the military, their friends and family. These have been left on the table in the narthex. Please feel free to pick up any that you might want and also to be shared with friends who might not have access to these resources.
