Making a ‘Place Where Our Children Want to Come’

Making a ‘Place Where Our Children Want to Come’

Although Zion Lutheran Church, Manning, sits across Iowa from the cornfield in “Field of Dreams,” Bob Genzen saw a connection between the baseball movie and his congregation’s fellowship hall. “If you build it, they will come,” he said, borrowing a line from the film. Members are using LCEF to build their dream to “make it a place where our children want to come.” The congregation also is planting stewardship seeds by gifting Sunday school attendees $25 to start a Y.I. Club StewardAccount.
