Financial Assistance for Church Camp at Lutheran Hills

St. Paul Crossroads has a long-standing tradition of supporting our youth to attend the various church camp programs. The Church Council voted to support all our campers by providing $200 towards camp expenses. Parents will pay the registration and any remaining cost. The registration form must be signed by Pastor Creighton for the LOM – and the Council – to know St. Paul is paying the remainder.

The LOMIK “Target Scholarship” program, administered with the help of our pastors and youth directors, targets families new to Lutherwald, Lake Luther, and Lutheran Hills by providing a NEW CAMPER a full scholarship for a week of summer camp.

Registration and camp schedules are available in the narthex and education wing hallway. Scholarship forms may be obtained in the church office. Questions may be directed to Kathy Westerfeld in the church office.

Crossroads Welcomes New Pastor

The Reverend William Gafkjen, Bishop of the Indiana-Kentucky Mission Territory presided over the services.  A large contingent of clergy from southeastern Indiana attended the event along with Leptak’s family, friends and members of the congregation. (You can find photos under “Photo Sets.”)

The congregation of Crossroads is delighted to welcome its new pastor and is confident that he will be a strong faith leader for the church. Pastor Leptak remarked, “I simply want the community to know how profoundly blessed I feel.  Our gracious Lord reached out, taking me by the hand in a journey of extraordinary growth, and has led me back home to share that infinite love with others.”   He will be relocating from Lawrenceburg to the Batesville area within the next few weeks.
