Lutheran Special Education Ministries September 2022 Mission of the Month

Lutheran Special Education Ministries is our September Mission of the Month. We will be collecting donations all month long. You can either drop off your donation while at church, send a check in the mail, or use our giving page and select Mission of the Month.

Our mission as a Christian ministry is to serve schools, churches, and families in order to advance the success of children who have learning needs. Our vision as a ministry is to reach out to provide the opportunity for every child to receive specialized learning services.

As we look to the future, we know that there is great potential for growth. Studies show that one student in five has a learning challenge. The law guarantees these children a public education.  For families that choose a Christian education, Lutheran Special Education Ministries is eager to partner with them and with churches to help meet their needs.

Lutheran Special Education Ministries provides resource room services, professional development, and educational support to churches and schools across the country. Our ministry’s vision is to provide children the opportunity to grow academically and spiritually regardless of the challenges they may face. We’re constantly looking at ways to grow our ministry by serving and supporting as many children, families and Christian communities as possible.

Here’s how your gift impacts children across the country:
