Fifth Annual Fund Drive
Celebrating Six Years of Service to God and His Children!
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Greetings in the name of our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
We are celebrating our sixth year as an association Lutheran school operated by two congregations of the LCMS: Hosanna-Tabor Lutheran Church in Redford and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Farmington Hills. Declining enrollments and a difficult economy in Michigan encouraged these two churches to step out in faith and try something that many other churches with schools had been unwilling to do; they agreed to work together to continue to provide Christian education for their members and their community. We have successfully completed five years and are nearing the end our sixth year of operation.
Even with the association, it becomes more and more difficult for the association congregations to “with one heart, equip God’s children to grow as disciples in His Word through a Christ-centered education.” Why? The financial costs of running a Christian school continue to rise beyond what can reasonably be charged for tuition and beyond what the association congregations can help subsidize. However, there are still children who need to be taught of the love of Jesus and receive an excellent education. Our students are taught to put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18) to stand against the devil. Our students learn to “Armor Up!” To learn more about Concordia, we invite you to check out our website at www.ConcordiaLS.org.
How can you help? The goal of the Court of Concordia Campaign is to be the annual fund drive that raises funds to support the budget for the remainder of the school year. We need you to support our educational ministry to God’s children. We ask that you prayerfully consider making an annual contribution to the Court of Concordia Campaign by completing the Response Form and mailing it with your donation check to Concordia.
Your support is very important to the continued success of Concordia Lutheran School. No gift is too large or too small. Our goal for 2015 is to raise $56,000 in donations for this year’s budget. We have already received nearly $16,000 from donors who make regular contributions throughout the year. That leaves only $40,000 to go! The campaign runs from May 1 to August 15, 2015. This is an especially crucial time of year for us as tuition is not collected in June or July. August 15 is also the end of our fiscal year. Updates on the success of the campaign will be published for both churches and our school families, and all donors will receive a thank you letter and receipt for their donation.
As part of our recognition of your donation we have created three levels of giving. They are:
Squires and Maidens – a gift up to $499
Lords and Ladies – a gift of $500 up to $999
Dukes and Duchesses – a gift of $1,000 or more
Squires and Maidens will receive a thank you letter and receipt for their donation and will be listed in all donation newsletters and reports. In addition, Lords and Ladies will be invited to a special recognition dinner. Along with the dinner, our Dukes and Duchesses will receive a special collectors “thank you” gift.
We pray that the Lord will move you to support the Court of Concordia Campaign. Please complete the enclosed form and return it with your donation to Concordia as soon as possible, and help Concordia Lutheran School continue to educate God’s children! Armor Up!
May God richly bless you!
