WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR IOWA LUTHERAN ELEMENTARY and SECONDARY SCHOOLS?  Direct your state tax dollars to benefit these students through the Iowa Lutheran School Tuition Organization (ILSTO).  By donating to ILSTO, students will receive more financial aid to enable them to attend. All donations help whether it’s $500, $1,000 or $10,000 that you would normally pay in state tax. In addition, the benefit to you is a great tax credit of 65% on your Iowa state taxes.  For further information, please contact Dewey Torkelson at 712-260-2991.

NEED to Know before November 3! Christians can have varying opinions on political issues such as healthcare or immigration or taxation. When it comes to God’s truth issues—the sanctity of life and marriage and human sexuality—only God’s opinion counts. “Your identity in Christ trumps your identity as an American and even as an individual with opinions. Every time. No exceptions.” (Peter Slayton The Lutheran Witness August 2020, P. 14)  As citizens of heaven (Philippians 3:20), God calls us to defend God’s truths “in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world” (Philippians 2:15).  Shine your light!  Please vote to affirm life. Lutheran Family Service – Rev. Dr. Jim Lamb, Life Advocate
