Introducing the new Y.I. Club

Lutheran Church Extension Fund’s (LCEF) stewardship and investing program for young people is changing from the Kids Into Discipleship and Stewardship (K.I.D.S.) Stamp Program to the Young Investors (Y.I.) Club, which will include a Y.I. Stamp Program. The concept remains the same: teaching our children to share God’s blessings with others while managing His gifts to them. As of Sept. 1, 2013, K.I.D.S. Stamps become Y.I. Stamps, with new opportunities to learn and share!  

Sharing the principles of good stewardship with your children is important. As stewards, we are responsible to God for all we are and have, including our financial resources. Being a good steward involves sharing, saving and spending money. With LCEF's Young Investors (Y.I.) Club, you will help your child save for the future and empower ministry.
