Stewardship Lessons
Sharing the principles of Christian stewardship with young believers is important. To help you teach children the importance of giving back what God has shared with us, LCEF offers the Y.I. Stamp Program as part of the Young Investors (Y.I.) Club. This program supports many values of a Christian family. The money (stamps) that children invest in this program provides customized loans to help build, improve and expand facilities for Lutheran churches and schools and also for church workers.
