Our Missouri Synod formed the Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) “to finance the acquisition of sites and the building of facilities, which expand programs in ministry, witness, outreach and service of the Lutheran Church.” These funds are meant for the work of mission.
Those eligible to participate include members of, contributors to, or participants in Missouri Synod programs. As an indicator of its popularity, First Lutheran members have maintained investments of over $2 million since 2005.
Details of all offerings may be obtained by visiting www.lcef.org or calling a Customer Representative at 800-843-5233. The local Congregational Advocate is Jack Martin at 352-375-1805.
