A NOTE OF THANKS - Low’s Lutheran Church, Thank you for your care and concern to pastors who are called to Federal chaplaincy positions and the peoplewith whom they serve in our nation and church. Your generosity to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Federal Chaplaincy Fund for Leaders Endowment by donating $350.00 received on December 31, 2018, will go a long way toward providing trained and experienced chaplains for our Armed Forces, Veteran Administration Hospitals, US Department of Defense, and Federal Prisons. Your gift will be used to continue establishing scholarships that assist seminary students interested in becoming Federal Chaplains. This generosity helps bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to critical places within our population and government...A great challenge that burdens seminary students today is the crushing debt they incur while answering the call of God to bring the Good News to all people in any circumstances and place. Know that your gift helps relieve that burden from our Federal Chaplains. May God bless you for this act of kindness. In Christ’s Service, The Rev. Murray D. Finck, on behalf of the ELCA Federal Chaplaincy Services Scholarship Development Team.
