Premium Services and Group Purchasing

Two Ways to Save!

  • LCMS Premium Services

  • Group Purchasing

What Are Premium Services?

The LCMS School Ministry Office has worked with service vendors to provide discounts to all LCMS schools on many of the products in use in schools today. Through contacts and agreements, schools are able to purchase or subscribe to services provided by these Premium Service vendors at greatly discounted rates compared to the everyday list pricing. Additionally, many of the Premium Service vendors offer additional incentives to Lutheran schools not offered to others due to the buying power leveraged by over 1,900 schools. Be sure to look through the information below to see if there are any Premium Service discounts which your ministry can take advantage of today!

LCMS Premium Services

Partnerships are available for Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod schools from the following companies and organizations.  Please remember, all subscription orders and renewals EXCEPT FOR Discovery Education will be processed by the individual companies listed below. Schools are still eligible for a discounted rate with the partnerships but will NOT go through the LCMS School Ministry Office to subscribe to the Premium Services. The contacts to secure a new or renewed subscription from each service are listed below.

NOTE: When contacting the specific vendors,
ask for the LCMS Group Discount.

Group Purchasing

The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod has set up Group Purchasing Agreements (formerly the National Contract Program) for schools and individuals to take advantage of for their needs. For over twenty-five years the program has offered substantial discounts on moving, and on producs and services to LCMS churches, schools and affiliated organizations by combining the buying power of over 8,000 organizations. Go to to see the many Agreements with various companies around the country!

Please note, each of the following are separate entities and are in no way associated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS, Inc.), nor are they endorsed as such. All agreements for use are solely between the individual company providing a product or service and the individual Lutheran school, and are governed by any acceptable individual contracts which have been established as such.

Upcoming Premium Services

The LCMS School Ministry office is currently working to identify new and additional Premium Service vendors which are currently utilized by LCMS schools in order to provide additional discount opportunities. Please check back in the coming months to see if there have been additional services added which may impact your school’s ability to provide services to the students you serve. Additionally, if you have any suggestions on potential Premium Service vendors not currently on the list, please reach out to the LCMS School Ministry office and your suggestions will be investigated for future opportunities.


If you have additional questions about the Premium Service discounts, please contact the LCMS School Ministry office at
