Please sign-up today and mark your calendars. LoC has the first shot at securing volunteers for this hands-on serving event. Other Lutheran congregations will be invited to join us after August 1.

The ELCA Fund for Leaders scholarship program supports students of tremendous promise attending ELCA seminaries. By making seminary more affordable, the ELCA Fund for Leaders enables more future ministers to go to seminary and helps them graduate with less debt, empowering those whom God calls into ministry to go and serve as the church needs and the Holy Spirit leads.
The long-range goal for the ELCA Fund for Leaders is to provide full-tuition support for every candidate at an ELCA seminary. Achieving this goal will not only have an impact on those who receive scholarships, it will help the whole church because excellent leaders will be able to follow the call to rostered ministry and will positively impact those they serve. We are a church that believes Jesus is God’s “yes” to us. Our lives can be a “yes” to others.
Barb and I have been regular supporters of the ELCA Fund for Leaders. Our Synod has been a strong supporter. Because of that I have agreed to commit to finding a foursome, though it would be great to have more than one, from Love of Christ Lutheran Church, to play in the Fund for Leaders Golf Classic Scramble on Monday, November 12 at Starfire Golf Course, Scottsdale, AZ. More details are coming, but I wanted to put the date out in front of any women or men who might be interested in supporting this ministry for developing pastors in the ELCA while enjoying great fellowship and golf. The estimated cost for the golf and a meal will be $125-150 with a portion being tax-deductible. There are ways that both golfers and non-golfers can participate. I will have more updated information in our next newsletter and upcoming E-News as the event gets closer.
