NEWS AND NOTES
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION – On Wednesday, May 24th (please note date change) from 5 – 6pm we will be having Early Bird Registration for the 2017/2018 school year in the school library. Having registration early will give the teachers some idea of how many books and supplies they will need for Fall. We are also asking that if your child/children are going to participate in sports in the coming school year they should also sign up for that. This will give our Athletic Director an idea of how many participants we will have so we can be put on the schedule when he attends the Lakeshore Lutheran Athletics meeting. No money is required that night and tuition will remain the same as last year, $400 for 5K-8th and $200 for 3K & 4K. As a bonus for early registration your child’s name will be entered in a drawing for a FREE week of hot lunch next Fall. We will still have full registration in August.
NEW CHURCH SERVICE SCHEDULE - Starting Memorial Day weekend, May 27 & 28 our new service schedule will start. Services will be Saturdays at 4:00pm and Sunday morning at 9:00am and we will stay with this schedule all year.
LITTLE SPROUTS – A friendly reminder that Little Sprouts playgroup meets every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month from 9:30-10:30am @ St. Paul’s school. For all little ones ages 0-5 and their caregivers. Please join us and bring a friend – Everyone is welcome!
WORSHIP ENCOURAGEMENT – The Board of Elders is seeking friendly members for a Worship Encouragement Committee. It would consist of 8-20 members who would meet regularly and focus only on encouraging members who are not coming to worship. A general goal would be to contact members who were not at worship for the month by email, text, phone call, letter, or a home visit. The goal is to be encouragers for one another. “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another…” (Hebrews 10:25) Please sign up on the list at the communication center or talk with pastor.
ST. PAUL’S WISH LIST – Our leadership is putting together a wish list for anyone who wishes to donate funds or purchase a gift for our school and church. Projects already on our list include: new desktop computer for church secretary, new DVD/BluRay players for our shut ins, a new playground at school for preschool ages, donations to our Early Childhood Fund, donations to new landscaping for school in spring, and donations and gifts for our school lunch program. If you have and questions or suggestions, please talk with a pastor.
