St. Martin's is a part of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, and we invite you to meet our family of friendly faces, open hearts, and Christ-driven lives. 




IMAGINE a city where 62% of the children live below poverty, where 40% of the houses are abandoned, where life for many is one big dumpster burn. Then imagine that some of these people in this urban setting (80%) hope for things we take for granted. They hope for a warm home, a roof over their head, healthcare, transportation, food and safe drinking water. Such a place exists: it is Flint’s East Side where the Lutheran Church (LCMS) has planted Franklin Avenue Mission (FAM) to serve the poor, hungry and homeless.

People of the Book Lutheran Outreach: Dearborn, Michigan has the highest proportion of Arab-Muslim-Americans in the country: over 40% of the city’s population. The Islamic Center of America, the largest mosque in North America, is in Dearborn. Foreign-born immigrants comprise more than 6% of Michigan’s population. There are also an increasing number of refugees from places like Iraq and Syria who now call Michigan home. For these reasons, Michigan serves as the base for POBLO’s operations. With the high concentration of Arabs in Dearborn and the greater Metro Detroit region, outreach opportunities among Muslim immigrants and refugees are endless.

In Michigan, POBLO missionaries are sharing the Gospel with Muslims and other unreached groups one-on-one, in Bible studies, and through an Arabic radio station that broadcasts Christian messages across the U.S. POBLO missionaries disciple, encourage, and counsel Muslim converts and others interested in Christianity. There are five International Friendship Centers in Michigan that, in partnership with volunteers from local churches, provide English and sewing classes to immigrants and refugees in the community. POBLO also provides refugee resettlement services; citizenship classes; food, clothing, and furniture distribution; and friendship & hospitality to those in need. POBLO is also supporting persecuted converts in Michigan.

As a congregation, we financially support POBLO International. You can make additional contributions to this ministry by indicating that on your contribution envelope.
