Central Illinois District Scholarship Sunday is May 2nd. Gifts will be used to support our CID students who are attending an LCMS seminary or university to become a pastor, teacher or other called church worker. Please plan to make a generous gift now or on May 2nd. Gifts may be designated “CID Scholarship Fund” to be used for the 2021-2022 school year or be designated “CID Scholarship Endowment Fund” to provide gifts every year for this ongoing need. Checks may be given through your church or sent to the Central Illinois District -LCMS, 1850 N. Grand Avenue West, Springfield, IL 62702-1626. Since the need for called workers is so great, we also ask you to encourage those who are qualified to serve to consider pursuing a called church-worker vocation.
If you are considering a major gift, or would like to include scholarships for CID seminarians or church worker students in your estate planning or through a life insurance policy or IRA, please contact CID Planned Gift Counselor, Rev. Charles Olander, at (217) 416-8842 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Thank you.
