PRAYERpraying-for-you
As a school and staff, we’ve been talking a lot about prayer (Praise, Repent, Ask, and Yield); teaching the kids to pray for you, each other, and our school daily. We pray for you in our class devotions, staff devotions and when specific things come up. When situations arise good or bad in your life and you would like prayer, please don’t hesitate to let us know how we can help. We also ask that you pray for our school, teachers and pastors with your children.
Prayer is very powerful, and God hears and answers all our prayers.

THE STORY BIBLEPhototastic-1_8_2016_bd65d154-d13c-4795-80a2-21a0c9c4546e(1) (1)
This is the Bible that I use in class and my Kindergarten friends seem to love it.
The Bible stories are easy to follow and have beautiful illustrations.  At the end
of each Bible story there is a section called: Ask – Do- Pray.  I feel this is a
great way to share God’s message.  If you are interested in purchasing a Story Bible
($20) please contact Mrs. Zaccaria.                  Makes a great gift!

It is that time again to collect food for our sister church in Chicago, St. Matthew Lutheran . St. Luke Church and School gathers food for St. Matthew’s Thanksgiving dinner, and also supplies their Soup Kitchen.
The following items have been selected for Kindergarten, but any food item is welcome.
*Large cans of gravy
*Boxes of instant potatoes

Every Wednesday the 7th and 8th grade class
will be selling ice cream novelties at lunch for $1.00.
Proceeds will go to defray the cost of their class
