Immanuel Lutheran School Dedicated this September

Thanks to LCEF investors’ support, Lutheran Church Extension Fund is blessed to help fund this new school construction in Gaylord, Minn. With the new space, Immanuel L.S. opened “Shining Stars Learning Center.” The child care has already reached capacity with a waiting list. What an opportunity to reach others for Christ!

Pictured below, Immanuel celebrated the dedication of their new school on the afternoon of Sun., Sept. 22, 2013.
