The Atlantic District LCMS Receives Grant from Long Island Lutheran Middle & High School
LUTHERAN CRUSADER FUND
The Atlantic District LCMS was recognized by the faculty, staff, and students of Long Island Lutheran Middle & High School with a grant of $2,500 from the LUTHERAN CRUSADER FUND during a special on-campus Chapel service on Thursday, April 21, 2016.
Provided by an anonymous donor in 1998, a generous $1 million contribution enabled LuHi, located in Brookville, Long Island, to establish the LUTHERAN CRUSADER FUND. The focus of the LCF is the creation and enhancement of innovative programs that benefit Christian institutions and support people and organizations in times of significant crisis or need. To date, over $1,800,000 has been awarded to over 500 deserving organizations through the LCF.
The program being funded by the grant is called “Building Strong Churches through Evangelism Training.” We believe we can support and revitalize District congregations by training youth, young adults, and all people to effectively share their faith, recognize opportunities within their communities and bring the message of Christ’s enduring love to those who are unchurched. The goal is to equip every person to be an evangelist to bring people into the church through acts of love, mercy and witness and by sharing the Gospel of Hope and training others to do likewise.
Located on a 32-acre campus in Brookville, Long Island Lutheran Middle & High School is a Christ-centered, college-preparatory school whose mission is to educate its students in body, mind and spirit. Recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a “School of Excellence,” LuHi serves 600 students in grades 6 through 12. For more information, call LuHi Admissions Office at (516) 626-1700, ext. 545 or visit www.luhi.org.
On April 10-12, Long Island Lutheran hosted its sixth annual Meal Packing Event. Over the course of the
three days, our students, faculty and staff, along with the help of local schools, community groups and our
association congregations packed a record 329,028 meals for Long Island Food Pantries and the Andrew
Grene School in Haiti for a six-year total of 1,885,530 meals packaged.
