Spring Training - Stillwater

There is still time to register for LCEF Spring Trainings in Chaska (Wed., April 18) and Rochester (Wed., April 25). Hope to see you there! 

Risen Christ Lutheran Church in Stillwater, MN was the site of the first of five LCEF Minnesota South District Spring Training meetings. Five members of New Life Lutheran in Hugo attended so they are in the front-running for the ‘most attendees’ to date. Winner will receive a $100 StewardAccount for their home ministry. Rev. Norm Heidorn won the pair of tickets to the St. Paul Saints.

LCEF volunteers gathered in both Norwood Young America and at St. Matthew in Worthington on Sat., April 14 for Spring Training. Winner of a pair of Mankato Moondogs tickets was Reuben Willmsen.
