Maxwell Ebenezer Lutheran receives grant
Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative and the Lower Colorado River Authority awarded the Maxwell Ebenezer Lutheran Church a $25,000 community development grant, which will help pay for energy-efficient heating and cooling systems in the church’s Community, Fellowship, and Education building annex.
“We are honored to receive this grant from the LCRA and Bluebonnet,” said Suzette Duesterheft, spokesperson for Ebenezer Lutheran Church. “We will be good stewards of this gift that will help us meet the needs of the citizens of Maxwell and other rural communities in Central Texas.”
The Ebenezer Lutheran Community, Fellowship, and Education annex building is located on existing church property. It will have one large open space for community meetings, parties, receptions and other public functions, classrooms, a kitchen and restrooms. Additionally, it will contain energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, and higher rated insulation.
State Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington), who represents Caldwell County in the Texas Legislature, was at the grant presentation. Kleinschmidt and U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Austin), who represents part of Caldwell County in Congress, supported Ebenezer’s grant application.
