Our student praise band played this song in chapel Wednesday. And even though I have heard it on the radio many times, the clarity of the message in the lyrics struck me as I sang along with the kids.
“Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me”
God has known each child from before they were born and even conceived. Every child, every person, is of great value to God.
I greet kids daily as they arrive at school. On occasion I ask a student how his or her older sibling is doing in high school or college. Almost always I get this strange look. To me, it says, “Why would I know anything about my sibling?”
I have always felt it was sad that kids could live in the same house day after day and know absolutely zero about what is going on in the other’s life.
Have you ever overheard a parent saying, “God does not like it when you do that. He is mad at you. You had better watch out!” I have. And it drives me crazy. The Bible is never meant to be just a tool that strikes fear into the heart of people to change their behavior. It is never meant to be a tool to manipulate, or intimidate.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Philippians 4:8 English Standard Version (ESV)
Parents make their own choices about what is allowed in their homes.
These are all parent decisions.
Mrs. Boyd was in the hospital recently. One thing she noticed right away was that she was asked at every turn for her name and her birthdate. Over eight days it was well over fifty times she was asked. They clearly wanted to make sure they were treating the correct person. They wanted her identity to be confirmed.
But does her name and birthdate really tell you who she is? Of course, you would need to know her to really know who she is. A great mother to four boys. An amazingly creative and accomplished teacher. A dedicated woman of faith.
We have a Running Club at SPLS. It is the brainchild of Coach Karyn Scarpa and another parent of SPLS alumni, Mrs. Diane Zalanka. I love getting out there, when I can, to meet and greet and watch kids loop around the track.
Inevitably, there will be several young runners who take off at full tilt in an exaggerated sprint the minute their feet hit the track. As you anticipated, by the first turn they are usually walking.
St Paul Lutheran Church will welcome the new school year with a worship service on Sunday, August 12 at 10:47AM. All school families are welcome as we install new teachers, recommit our returning staff, recognize anniversaries and pledge the year to the Lord’s service.
Calling all parents of SPLS students! We have been working hard on campus getting many things ready, but there are still activities that require volunteer man, woman and child power.
Sign up now for Work Day 2018 on Saturday, August 4, 8 AM to noon.
We have a great time and do great things to get ready for our awesome boys and girls.
St. Paul Lutheran School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) has been very busy preparing for our amazing Back to School Bash. It will be on Tuesday, August 7th, starting at 5pm for our new incoming parents and 5:30pm for returning parents until 7:30pm at the Athletic Center.
Our B2SB gives our St. Paul families an opportunity not only to meet each other but also preview and sign up for activities offered at St. Paul. It is a great time to learn about each other and what our school has to offer.
We are blessed our children attend St. Paul. We understand we all have busy lives, obligations, jobs and children, but we encourage and BUILD UP as a family. Let’s embrace not only our children and school but also our own community. We can be a blessing in many ways.
LET’S HAVE A LUAU!
Please join us to recognize and support our Auction. This year our theme is Lei’d Back Luau. Our yearly Auction finances our PTO to provide our children with many opportunities we would not otherwise be able to provide, including our fun and informative B2SB. So, let’s BUILD UP our support for this school year’s auction. Consider donating a twenty dollar bottle of wine to our school auction for a great start and get our wine donation started. Don’t forget to stop by the auction booth for your chance to win two tickets to our auction!!!
DON’T MISS IT!
We believe it’s going to be an amazing school year at St. Paul with your support. Meet us for fun, food, games and prizes!!!! Bring your cell phones to take selfies at our SPLS Aloha photo booth.
Class lists are already put together in preliminary form but we are just waiting on a few enrollment stragglers and leaving flexibility for fitting in new students in a positive way.
