The First Lutheran Church of Boston supports two outreach programs to the blind and visually impaired: Boston Light of the World and Lutheran Braille Workers.
Boston Light of the World
Our Mission Statement: To reach the Blind Community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His love through feeling His presence in all we seek to do at our center.
Boston Light of the World welcomes all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and we want to share His love and Gospel of salvation to all who come in our midst.
Our objective is for those that are blind to be touched by Jesus’s love and spread it to the world through our services by helping others develop — not only in their physical needs, but spiritual as well. We seek to emphasize the love of Jesus Christ through our actions, making His love contagious so that all will be touched.
Fellowship & Education
Boston Light of the World is one of a growing number of Christian organizations throughout the United States that offers blind and visually impaired people opportunities for fellowship, Bible study and Christian teaching on a variety of topics.
Additionally, we offer educational opportunities for people to learn how to read and write braille, as well as training in computer-related skills.
One of our important goals is to help churches become more aware and sensitive to the needs of and issues that are faced by blind and visually impaired people. This is accomplished through a process of education and dialogue. We emphasize the importance of accessibility, showing churches how they may become a more welcoming environment for blind and visually impaired people.
