Annual appeal launched in conjunction with release of Saints Alive
Each year, ALC appeals to the members of the Lutheran Church of Australia and New Zealand for financial support to help us prepare pastors, teachers and lay workers for service in congregations, schools, aged and community care organisations. We need to do this because the LCANZ does not provide full financial support to the College from its Churchwide budget. Over the past two years the LCANZ has needed to reduce its contribution to ALC by $325,000 and so we appeal to you to help us make up this shortfall.
Appeal packs have been posted out to congregations in the past week, with a request that the appeal is promoted during the month of June. In conjunction with the launch of the appeal, the recently published 2023 edition of Saints Alive provides the Church with an update on happenings at ALC including: who is teaching at the College in 2023, a snapshot of our online student community, what programs are new, and what changes have and are being implemented. As there is much misinformation out there about ALC, this edition also includes a "myth busters" page which contains the facts about who we are and what we do. Read Saints Alive here or request a hard copy.
