The Ephphatha Lutheran Mission Society, St. Martin Lutheran School for the Deaf and deaf Lutherans from across Michigan celebrated the 20th Annual Deaf Mission Festival with St. Lorenz Lutheran Church in Frankenmuth on August 28.
Each year Ephphatha hosts the Mission Festival in Frankenmuth for the deaf community. The festival consists of outside worship at the St Lorenz, Frankenmuth Church Grove, followed by a BBQ Lunch. After lunch there is a special presentation. This is a great opportunity which provides resources and community-building for those working with the Deaf.
