Breaking Ground!

Praising God as New ECLC Becomes Reality

Shovels dug in and voices rose up in praise as we broke ground April 6, 2013, for our new Early Childhood Learning Center.

“The groundbreaking is an important step in early childhood ministry—not only at MLC, but for our synod,” said President Mark Zarling. “God is not just allowing a new building to be constructed. He is allowing another opportunity to share his saving name with precious souls! He is allowing more student teachers and in-service teachers to be trained in response to the growing early childhood ministries in the WELS.”

Occupancy for the new center is slated for September 15, with 44 pre-primary students already on the enrollment list.

Gifts for Let the Children Come, the capital campaign funding this project, are still welcome and may be given online or mailed to MLC Mission Advancement, 1995 Luther Ct, New Ulm MN 56073.
