The Mission of The AALC Foundation is to "encourage generosity that advances the ministries of The AALC . . .
The Foundation's Vision is to"provide sufficient support to implement church-wide initiatives, plant and grow thriving congregations . . .
Since the AALC Foundation's Endowment is not yet large enough to provide meaningful support from its earnings, the Foundation Board appealed to individual members of The AALC for help with two immediate ministry needs that are consistent with the Foundation's mission and vision. The response is in!
They are now working feverishly to convert the property into a center for their ministry.
The members of Abiding Grace are grateful for your helping them accumulate the $60,000 down payment they needed to purchase this property.
Members and friends of Abiding Grace raised $33,000 of the $60,000 needed before reaching a plateau. AALC members who heard of their plight through the Foundation's appeal sent gifts totaling $4,967.00.
Additional gifts from The AALC's Commission on American Missions fund ($10,000), Ascension Lutheran Church of Ames, IA ($10,000), Pilot Knob Lutheran Church of Forest City, IA ($1,000), Faith Lutheran of Holstein, IA ($1,000), New Hope Fellowship Lutheran of Laurel, MT ($250), and Barn Again Lutheran of Tijeras, NM ($200) enabled Abiding grace to close their loan. All told, gifts from The AALC's members given to Abiding Grace through the Foundation, and TAALC Congegations, totalled $27,417.00.
Our Lord has enabled us to do together, for His glory, something that neither of us would have been able to do alone. Thanks be to God for His boundless blessings!
