A church that some families will join only so their children can go to the lutheran private schools that give a tuition discount to church members. Most of the time, these members will not give much in their offerings, but still get to take advantage of the church member school discount. Many times, these members do not even support the lutheran faith, but just don't want their children going to the public elementary or middle schools. You will find they also will many times drop from coming to services after their children are no longer attending the school.
Elder: Isn't it terrible how the Smith's changed their membership as soon as their daughter finished 8th grade! I suppose they no longer need the church member discount, now that they are sending her to a public high school.
Peon : Oh well, at least they found the lutheran church good for SOMEthing!
