The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, Brevard, North Carolina
The newest BET preschool, the Good Shepherd Crèche in Porayar, was named for the church which founded it in 2010, The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd. The creche moved from its original site to this, its final home, which was purpose built in 20–. The Good Shepherd Creche is spacious for students, functional for staff with a big kitchen and office, and has a very large enclosed playground. The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd offset much of the cost of the new building and faithfully continues its support, significantly supplementing other HKI donations.
LCGH’s assistance with this creche, and its size, allowed BET to take in 20 more children following the disastrous flooding in late 2015. Enrollment is at now 70. The Good Shepherd Church is highly mission-oriented and HKI is honored to be one of its projects.
The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd (LCGS) continues to support the crèche, significantly supplementing other HKI donations. The crèche recently moved into a beautiful building, built by BET with the help of funds from SCGS.
