Next Delegate Meeting: Thursday, September 5, 2024 at 6:30 pm

During the initial establishment of the school, local Lutheran churches, now considered Association Member Churches, worked with the Lutheran High School Association of Orange County to provide prayer, funding, wisdom, and guidance and continue to do so to this day. Each of the Association Member Congregations has delegates. These delegates act as liaisons between Orange Lutheran and the Member Congregation. The delegates also elect the Board of Directors for Orange Lutheran, as well as address any other matters which require their attention, per the Bylaws.

  1. Ensure your congregation has a complete slate of Delegates (IV 3 b i)
  2. Contribute your annual Quota amount (IV 3 b iv)

Communication (as representative of the owners of the Association)

Ongoing Action Requested (to help both the Association and Congregation accomplish THE mission)

  1. Discuss your current Quota payments with your Treasurer. Get a regular report on how your congregation is doing
  2. Speak at your congregation meetings to ensure the importance of the mission is understood
  3. Personally make a gift to the Association’s Annual Fund to show your support. Consider a gift to our upcoming campaign and including us in your estate planning
