Support Our New England District Schools - 02/21/2024

Join Pres. Beinke for a weekly Bible study of the Scripture readings for the coming Sunday! This online study takes place on Thursday's from 7:00 - 8:00 PM on Go-To-Meeting at the following link: If Thursday is a national holiday the class will not meet.


The New England District (NED), comprised of the LC-MS churches in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Maine, has four congregations with day schools (preschool through grade 8):

These schools offer a solid education within the context of our faith for the children in their communities. The majority of students enrolled are from non-member families, giving the sponsoring congregations an amazing opportunity to reach beyond their walls and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

A congregation with a school for primary education commits to, among other things, providing and maintaining the facilities, hiring staff, purchasing curriculum and enrolling students. The congregation also accepts the responsibility to financially support its school, as tuition only covers a portion of these costs.

We now have an opportunity to join our sister congregations in supporting the mission work of our NED schools:

  • Please lift up our schools in your prayers, giving thanks to God for this ministry to students and families.
  • Consider a tax-deductible financial gift. The NED has established a dedicated account for monetary contributions that will go directly to the schools. Funds will be distributed annually through the NED Board of Directors with recommendations from a newly-established School Funding Committee. If you would like to contribute, please follow this link and designate your gift for “Support Our Schools”, or you can mail a check directly to the New England District office and note “Support Our Schools” in the memo field.

Each NED congregation will receive more information next year about the schools and the giving opportunity will be on-going. Thanks be to God for congregations that preach and schools that teach the wonderful identity we have as God’s children and His guidance for our lives!
