Volunteers help complete MLC chapel basement

MLC is grateful for the 25 alumni and Builders for Christ volunteers who collectively gave over 1100 hours of their time and talent to complete phase one of the Chapel of the Christ basement.

Discipleship and giving up everything

Jesus gave up EVERYTHING for us. Jesus also asked his disciples to give up EVERYTHING, even their families and they did. What does that mean for those that are "believers" that don't give EVERYTHING?
I understand your question to be referencing Luke 14:33 – “In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.”  If that verse were simply isolated and pulled out of context, it would look like we all need to live ascetic lives in order to be disciples of Christ.  . . .

ALS Fall Update

Dr. Glen L. Thompson, Academic Dean of Asia Lutheran Seminary(ALS), reflects on God’s blessings for their mission in Hong Kong in the past and their prayers for the future.
Another ALS school year started this past month, and that offers me a time of reflection. Those of you who know me well, know that quiet and reflection are not perhaps my best gifts.  But the Lord has done so many wonderful things here that even I have to “stop” and marvel at it!

September 2014 - 150th anniversary of Luther Prep

The year was 1864. Civil War fighting was at its peak, as Lincoln pressed to preserve the Union. At about the same time, WELS president Johannes Bading saw a need to preserve another institution: WELS. He realized that a key to our synod's future was to establish schools for training pastors and teachers. Today, we celebrate the 150th anniversary of that effort, by looking at one of our preparatory schools: Luther Prep.
