All Day Preschool

On April 20, a licensing application was submitted to the DCFS to get Tree of Life Lutheran Preschool licensed as a group day care center. Work is being done to make sure Tree of Life can comply with all of the DCFS requirements. Some of those requirements have to do with equipment, like cots. Some of those requirements have to do with certifications, like "food handling" certification.

Our biggest challenge to providing full day preschool will be a staffing challenge. The all-day preschool will be built around our current preschool and enrichment programs. Staff will be needed to provide the before and after school care.

The parents of the 21 currently enrolled students have been notified of the changes and the fee structure that has been developed. Even as the preschool moves to a full day program, the fees remain the most reasonable in the Lake Zurich community.

Despite all of the unknowns, we continue to move forward, working our way through the process, confident that if it is Christ's will that we have a full day preschool, He will provide the resources necessary to make it happen.

-- Pastor Bauer

Parking Lot Resurfacing

New Life is planning on replacing the upper parking lot by the end of September. To do this we will need to raise approximately $40,000. To date, a little over 10% has been raised. Please plan to make an ''above and beyond'' gift so that our parking lot can be resurfaced. (And yes, Pastor Bauer's broken down pickup truck has found its way onto the graph at church charting our progress!)

Training Camp

Training Camp will be held Sunday, July 22 through Friday, July 27, 2017 at Camp Duncan in Ingleside, IL. New Life sent 5 kids from our congregation to camp last year. The ONE AND ONLY FUNDRAISER for Training Camp will take place on Wednesday, February 14th at the Ash Wednesday Lenten supper at 6:15 PM. All proceeds will be matched dollar for dollar by National Mutual Benefit.

New, Online Giving Opportunity at New Life

One of the features that came with New Life's accounting software package is access to a secure, on-line giving portal. This allows anyone to give to our church using a credit card, debit card or ACH transfer (we're still working on PayPal). You can tag your gift as a one-time or recurring donation, endowment contribution, preschool tuition or parking lot gift - and also pay the credit card fee in advance if you so choose. Both an immediately printable and an eMailed receipt are generated for your records. Gifts are recorded directly into New Life's accounting software, which are then acknowledged by our Treasurer and Financial Secretary. you wish, you may include a copy of your receipt in your offering envelope, or mark the back ''online''.
