The ALC Annual Appeal gives ALC an opportunity to share what we are doing in partnership with the LCA and beyond and lets you know how you can contribute towards our work.
The appeal is usually launched in May or June each year. Read ALC's 2021 appeal letter.
Connections matter! That’s why we have chosen ‘Connecting through faith’ as our appeal theme for 2021. As so many of us experienced last year, life can feel pretty empty when we lose our connections with other people. Here at ALC we were also cut off from each other, but God provided innovative ways to connect. These included new ways to teach our students whom we train to serve you in many ways—as lay workers, as teachers in Lutheran schools, and as pastors. To do this most of our classes shifted to online modes. Thanks to technology, ALC also found new ways to connect more broadly with the Lutheran community—both here and overseas—providing fresh opportunities for many to participate in ALC’s education programs for the first time. These fresh connections were forged by the Holy Spirit as our faith brought us together to learn from God.
These connections gave those who serve at ALC a renewed sense of purpose and commitment to continue serving each and every day. It was our connections with you—our sisters and brothers in the faith—that always reminded us why we serve. Being connected with you renewed our sense of purpose and brought us joy.
Together, let’s rejoice in the connections that came about as a result of a challenging year. By supporting ALC’s appeal you are helping to keep these vitally important connections alive and functioning. Your gifts not only help to sustain our continuing service, but they strengthen our ability to reach out and serve people beyond the LCANZ.
Thank you for your support and your precious connections with ALC.
