Our Grand Event on Apr. 7 was a grand success!
About 300 guests came “Back to School” and almost 70 students and dozens of adult volunteers worked hard—all to support Christian education—and netted about $80,000! Check out photos from the night on our SmugMug
Still, we are <this close> to meeting our matching goal from Grand Event, and fully funding our Chapel Experience and Laser Engraver for our Tech Ed classes.
That’s we decided to keep the Grand Event going for just a bit longer. Whether you bid on something and didn’t win, or you weren’t able join us in person, please consider giving online now. For every dollar you donate RIGHT NOW, a generous anonymous donor will match it! Whether it’s $10, $50, or $100—or more—help us wrap up our Grand Event in style!
$7,500 Match Opportunity: Chapel Experience!
One of the most treasured parts of our day is the three mornings a week when students, faculty, and staff gather for chapel worship. As much of a blessing as it is, if you’ve ever been there in person, you know the challenges that also come from our gym-chapel setting. Your donation to the "chapel experience" will bring the blessings of improved audio, video, and live streaming capabilities in our gym-chapel setting. Upgrades and replacements include amplifiers, speakers, boom mics, projector and screen, computer, camera, and permanent AV booth relocation.
$5,000 Match Opportunity: Laser Engraver for Tech Ed
Our LLHS Tech Ed Department educates and equips many of our Warrior teens in hands-on skills that are in high demand in today's workforce. Staying up-to-date with the tools of technology is important and a challenge. This resource would continue to outfit the computer room in becoming a working “Fab Lab” in addition to the 3D printing machines, and would be used to etch wood, leather, glass, and plastics, as well to cut masonite and cardboard in constructing prototypes. The Pro Series CO2 48x36 Laser with engraving table is $10,000. A generous donor has agreed to match donations up to $5,000 to accomplish the goal of having the machine ready for integration into Tech Ed curricula next fall.
Grand Event VII: Decades of Faithfulness
Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Lakeside Lutheran
Our 2018 back-to-school theme is inspired by the Psalmist,
"Teach me your way, Lord,
that I may rely on your faithfulness." (86:11)
What a faithful LORD we have. We are grateful for your prayers and efforts for Lakeside, a ministry with its mission to assist parents in educating, encouraging and equipping teens for life -- not just for their earthly lives, but life eternal -- when his faithfulness will be our glory.

Our 2016 garden theme was inspired by Paul's reminder in 2 Corinthians,
"for we walk by faith, not by sight."
What a lovely walk it can be when we trust in the LORD's promises. We are grateful for your prayers and efforts for Lakeside, a ministry with its mission to assist parents in educating, encouraging and equipping teens for life -- not just for their earthly lives, but life eternal -- when all believers will walk together in glorious heavenly gardens.
