~ For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ
Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. ~
SENT TO SERVE
The students’ artwork is going to be displayed in the church fellowship hall this
weekend for everyone to see their beautiful masterpieces that they have created! The
students were able to do a lot of different activities this week and celebrate the
opportunity we have to be able to Serve Him in everything we do! As you have
probably noticed…the National Lutheran Schools Week Theme was SENT TO SERVE.
“As God’s Masterpieces, it’s not enough to passively sit on the sidelines of life as if in a
museum or on a bookshelf. We were created for a purpose that He planned for us
long ago. Yes, we are saved by faith and not works, but we have been saved by His
grace, so we can to do HIS work!” -devotionsfromtheheart.com
May we always remember to celebrate and take advantage of every opportunity to
National Lutheran Schools Week provides more than 1,900 preschools, elementary
schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work
among us in schools of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
We thank God for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for the
children we serve. We are most grateful for the opportunity to share Jesus’ amazing love
with children and their families.
National Lutheran Schools Week gives us an opportunity to proclaim these great
blessings within the communities we serve.
Our schools are amazing incubators for faithful witness of God’s love for us through Christ
by teachers and students alike.

BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO PERSEVERES UNDER TRIAL, BECAUSE WHEN HE HAS STOOD THE TEST, HE WILL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE THAT GOD HAS PROMISED TO THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. ~ JAMES 1:12~
Life is tough, living a Christian life is even tougher! Ironically, with all the uncertainty and unusual c circumstances around the world today, the character trait for this month is perseverance. The book of James (where the verse above is taken), may just be the perfect book to read. It’s short and sweet and packed with wisdom and advice for Christians. We all face situations that require perseverance. At Immanuel, we can talk about how God would want us to live and encourage each other to
focus on why making God’s choices is worth it! Prayers that we may all stay strong in our faith and persevere through struggling times!
Not really sure what else a person can say about a year like 2020!
I think the best description could be told with a Mad Lib — interactive stories that you can addwords to; words are inserted in the blanks and once all blanks are full, the story is read, usually ending up really quite funny —
It almost felt as though there was no rhyme or reason to anything we did. Whatever anyone thought was NORMAL was thrown out the window. Of course, if we think hard enough there were definitely blessings! Unfortunately, the new year doesn’t change things like a light switch, so we still will be living one day at a time, praying for health and strength; but we are excited to get back and see everyone in the new year and enjoy our time together again! And if we know WHO is in control, we definitely know good will come out of all the craziness!
