Even though we are not able to open Ascension Lutheran School in Gary, Indiana this fall due to very low enrollment, we will continue to be diligent and work towards a potential opening for the fall of the 2017-2018 academic year. Please take a moment to read the attached letter from Reverend, Dr. Daniel May and myself.
God has a plan for Christian education in the community of Gary, Indiana.
As we continue to pray and follow His guidance, God will continue to walk with us and bless our efforts. The Indiana District, Lutheran Corporation of Indiana, and LUMIN will be gathering in early September to discuss more about this new school start and continue to strategize ways to engage community and increase support from parents about this Lutheran school.
