What's Happening Week of 5.15.17

Thank you God!
Dear God,
 
This is a special letter of thanks to you.  As you know I attended church Sunday, May 7.  It was a particularly busy Sunday; a scheduled Voters’ meeting, last minute preparations for welcoming in new members, etc.  I must confess my main focus was not on hearing your Word. 
 
Although you know all of this already, writing helps me to order my thoughts.  I write this to give you thanks and praise for your unwavering devotion.
 
A miracle happened on Sunday . . . I heard you speaking to me loud and clear.  I absolutely love those moments!  How did I hear you?  Did something extraordinary happen?  Yes it did . . . through Pastor Mark Brighton’s sermon.  You were talking to me and to all in attendance.  It is your love and commitment you conveyed through Pastor in the sermon.  You reminded me/us of the magnitude of your love.  A love that continually is shown to us.  Even if we are not ready to hear the Word, you stalk us to get our attention!
 
Stalk us?  Wow – that was the word used in the sermon.  Now you can understand my trepidation in associating that word with you so I looked it up.  According to one of the definitions in Merriam Dictionary, used as a transitive verb it means to “pursue by stalking.”   I think I get it now.
 
Father, I take stalking to mean that you never give up on us, that you pursue us with great vigor.  We are reminded of that vigor because of your gift - you gave your one and only Son who died on the cross for each one of us. 
 
So Father, I give to you all the praise, all the glory and all the honor that I can muster as a human being.  You cleared away the clutter in my brain and heart so that I might enjoy our conversation and glean from it a renewed understanding of your love. 
Thank you!  Philomena Howard
  Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10

What's Happening Week of 5.8.17

Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it."

This Proverb is a charge to all parents and something we take very seriously in partnering with you. We are honored to be a part of the teaching and training in the ways of the Lord each and everyday here at Christ Lutheran. We begin each morning in our classrooms with prayer and devotionals. Our students participate in weekly chapel services and our day-to-day interactions are guided by the power we receive from the Holy Spirit. Our teachers not only share the Truths of God's Word, but model Christ-like character and expect nothing less from students. These are just a few reasons we have celebrated our incredible teachers during this "Teacher Appreciation Week."

What's Happening Week of 5.1.17

Please keep our 8th graders in your prayers this next week as they travel to Washington D.C. for one of the most amazing history lessons they will ever be a part of! This is a very exciting time for our 8th graders as they enjoy a trip they have been working to fundraise all year long. Thank you to all who supported their fundraising efforts throughout this past school year. It's also an exciting time for our soon-to-be graduates to move on to high school. Many have been with us since Kindergarten, so it's always a bittersweet time of year, but we know they are more than prepared to head-off on their next adventure with the firm foundation they received here at Christ Lutheran. Thank you to all who have been a part of the lives of this 8th grade class this year and thank you for your continued prayers for their upcoming trip and the next chapter of their lives!

The Journey

Remember the journey? It started on Ash Wednesday. That was a time of reflection and anticipation – of knowing what laid ahead in the Season of Lent. Some chose to give up something, like chocolate. Others may have added something, like a daily devotion to the morning regimen. Others were just mindful of what laid ahead.
And now, we have come to the final week – Holy Week…Passion Week. This is where we follow the path to the cross and beyond.

Maundy Thursday: Mandatum – Mandate. Jesus gives us a new commandment to “love one another.” This was given as part of the final instructions to His disciples after the supper in the upper room, where Holy Communion which was instituted, had ended.

Good Friday: A time to impress upon the minds and hearts of believers the tragic consequences of the sins of humankind (which include you and me) and the greatness of the Savior’s sacrifice on the cross.

Tenebrae is the service we use on Good Friday. The service involves the lighting and extinguishing of candles as a reminder of the darkness that covered the earth after the passion and crucifixion of our Savior.

Easter: The celebration of our risen Lord. Christ is Risen…He is Risen Indeed!!!
If you are looking for a warm and wonderful Christian community to participate in “The Journey”, please consider Christ Lutheran Church for these special days,

FACILITY HAPPENINGS

We’ve heard you! Parents have reached out to CLCS to let us know about facility-related issues. Here a number of items we’ve addressed . . .

Basketball court
Three of the basketball backboards have been repaired and/or will be ordered one was removed and must be replaced. Two just needed to be straightened out and that has been done.

Drinking Fountains
The gymnasium fountain has now been removed. PTL has requested that new drinking fountains be installed (that includes replacing the gym fountain.) The water fountains have a feature where water bottles can be filled. We’ve contacted our plumbing company who is now looking at the specifications for installation and will give CLCS a quote for the purchase and installation of the water fountains. Donations from the Jog-a-thon have made this possible! Thank you PTL!

Basketball Winch
The goal is to make the basketball backboard easier to raise. This can be done by making the winch electronically driven. This project has proven to be a little more involved than first thought. CLCS continues to look for a company who will sell and install the right solution for its needs. Presently, the manual winch in place has been repaired and is working properly.

ADDITIONAL FACILITY NEEDS

Ground Cover
Monday, April 3, 2017 ground cover was installed on the small hills bordering the field (were the benches are located). The ground cover will provide support to the hills as well as provide a nice look. The ground cover is non flowering so it does not attract bees!

Tree Trimming
Several trees around the facility have been identified and will be receiving a nice trim.

Bathroom and Classroom Repairs
CLCS continues to be in negotiations with the insurance company about the necessary repairs to areas affected by our recent flood.

New 8ft Tables
21 new 8ft long, rectangular plastic tables have been ordered . . . Yeah! These will replace all the older, heavy wooden tables. The new ones should be much easier to pick up and put away.

God’s Blessings!

What's Happening Week of 4.3.17

Hello Christ Lutheran Families,

I am very excited to be the new SAC Director. I have been working with Christ Lutheran Preschool since November and have loved every minute of it. I will be sad to leave the little ones, but school age children is where I shine. I can't wait to share all of my experience with your children. I have tons of fun and exciting ideas that I can't wait to introduce. I am looking forward to meeting everyone, so please stop by and introduce yourself.

To kick-off Summer Camp I would like to raffle off one week of choice. All tickets are $1. Please stop by SAC to purchase a ticket for a chance to win!
