12 Days of Christmas at KML

Over twelve days in December, KML’s Student Council and National Honor Society work to collect money through student involvement to support families in need. Parents, federation members, alumni, friends, and the community are encouraged to donate as well.

This December we are raising money to help the Gerlach, Hovorka, Lindenberg, and Praefke families. For more information about these families or the 12 Days of Christmas at KML or to donate to support them, visit Last day to donate: December 31, 2023.

Let’s Grow Together Update

Our future plans are bold, exciting, and meaningful. With God’s blessing, we boldly move forward with our expansion plans to continue to reach more souls for the gospel and serve them with excellence in all areas of our KML ministry. We are praying God continues to move the hearts of those who can support this Let’s Grow Together campaign as we head into the end of the calendar year.

Your gift or pledge today means we can share the gospel with even more students in the coming years. Through your prayers and financial gifts, you also boldly proclaim the humble message of the birth of our Savior.

Merry Christmas and thank you for joining together as part of the KML family.
