“It has been a blessing. We only had one scoreboard in the gym prior to the gift from LCEF,” said Valley L.S. Development Director Anne Meyer-Schmitz. “When the volleyball players and basketball players had games, it was difficult for the players to see the score and time during the game. The [LCEF Signature Series Sponsorship funds] also allowed us to pay someone to come in and do the proper electrical work that needed to be done on both scoreboards. Thank you! God bless!”
"And he said to them, 'Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.'" —Mark 16:15
“We offer our LCEF Signature Sponsorship Series to help enhance ministry communications in our member churches and schools,” said Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) Iowa Districts Vice President Carole White. “Valley Lutheran School in Cedar Falls is a wonderful example of a ministry partnership. The school has also received an LCEF loan and chose to utilize LCEF's Capital Funding Services (CFS.)”
LCEF is able to sponsor more than signs (interior and exterior,) congregations and schools have also benefited from audio/visual upgrades, print materials and website design.
