Easter Blessings

Dear KML Family,

From the very moment Adam and Eve disobeyed our loving Father and ushered sin into this world, it has caused much devastation. On the other hand, our loving, gracious, and unchanging God gives a joy that is like a light emerging through the unavoidable darkness of this world. As we look forward to Easter, the true warmth of the Son and joy he brings permeates our world. Our God is predictable – his love and grace always prevail. His promises are always kept!

May God give all of us a renewed sense of joy as we look to his resurrection and ours, too! While in our time of grace here, let us radiate that joy as we live his way, giving him glory and making him known. Have a blessed Easter!

God Bless,

President Luehring

Let’s Grow Together Campaign Update

We are overwhelmed by the generosity of so many supporters at KML who have made a gift or pledge to continue to support students as we grow. Expanded facilities are not ministry by themselves, but they provide additional opportunities for growth in programs as well as keeping up with current growth and creating more capacity for growth.

$3.86M as of March 29, 2023


Goal: $10M by June 30, 2024

We thank the Lord for your prayers and gifts towards our Let’s Grow Together campaign as we respond to God’s continued blessings of more and more KML families.

For more information, visit kmlhs.org/grow or contact either President Jamie Luehring (jamie.luehring@kmlhs.org) or Director of Mission Advancement Wendy Breimon (wendy.breimon@kmlhs.org).

The time is now. Let’s Grow Together!

Donations of fancy desserts for our live auction would be happily accepted! We would ask that food items be dropped off in the KML Main Office on Friday, April 14, from 12:00-3:00 PM if at all possible. Refrigerators and freezers are available if your dessert needs to be kept cold. We are also in need of desserts like cookies, bars, and pies for the dessert bar.

If you would like to donate or would like to volunteer to help with the event, please contact Mrs. Angela Hohenstein (angela.hohenstein@kmlhs.org). You can also visit kmlhs.org/fmf for donation forms, volunteer sign up forms, and more information.
