    Jesus took a child and had him stand among them. Taking the child into his arms, he said to them: “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me.” Mark 9:37



































    To achieve this challenge, schools often look to such organizations as LEFM and LSEM. These organizations work with the schools to meet their challenges. They are determined to bring Lutheran school supporters together in a united effort to support our schools. All donations go directly into scholarships. Administrative costs are covered by Board Members. By reaching more children with a Christian education we reach out to those who are unchurched. This past year LEFM provided $20,000 in scholarships.


    For more information contact Board Members: Merlin Bretzman, Lucy Einess, Carol Radunz, Mel Soderholm or LSEM Development Counselor and board member Dennis Senne. LSEM: www.luthsped.org, LEFM: www.teachourkids.org.



    Lutheran Special Education Ministries (LSEM) and Lutheran Education Foundation of Minnesota (LEFM) are working cooperatively to support Lutheran elementary and secondary schools in the Twin Cities area. LSEM assists schools to implement special education programs and LEFM

    provides students with scholarships.

    Lutheran schools are aware of the need to increase their ability to accept students who have financial and/or special needs. They often hear from parents, grandparents, and students who desire a Lutheran education which is Christ centered, value based and provides a quality education.

    Pastor Moritz has been an LCMS pastor for 39 years, including three years serving as an

    Intentional Interim Pastor of three congregations (400-1,400 members), each

    successfully completing the transition process resulting in the call of a pastor.

    His strengths include his leadership and plan to give structure to our transition, while

    allowing for flexibility. Congregational feedback sheets from his visit also identify him as

    balanced, level-headed, having a good sense of humor and relatable. He and his wife,

    Lorelle, currently reside in Michigan. They have three adult children and one grandchild.
