Who Are You Calling Lost?
On the way to church yesterday, I saw a bumper sticker that I had never seen before and it got me to thinking. It was a sticker that simply said, “Not all who wander are lost.” I’m not sure what the producer of this sticker had in mind when he printed these stickers but maybe he wanted to let people know the joy of being able to take off some day and just drive down the road with no real plan, just drive to where ever the wind blows or the sun shines.
Since yesterday was Confirmation Day here at Faith, I started to think about those who were making a promise not to wander away from God. They were renewing their vow made for them at their Baptism to renounce the devil and all of his works and ways. These young adults stood before God and the congregation stating their intention to remain a child of God all the rest of their life.
Then I thought of all of those young adults who previously had made those same promises over the years I have been here at Faith. I thanked God for those who are still here and have remained faithful to those vows. I prayed that God would remind and restore those who may have wandered from those vows. I may have lost contact with them but God knows them and loves them still. He will do all He can to call them back. We should do all we can to stay close to the Lord through His Word.
Congratulations Huskies Track Team!
We’re proud of how well our students did at the ACSAA State Track Meet last Saturday! Our elementary and junior high girls’ teams both took 3rd place, and our elementary boys’ team tied for 1st place.
Uniforms should be washed and returned as soon as possible. If anyone still has a uniform from another sport, please return it.
- The teachers and staff would like to say thank you to the students, parents, and PTF members for our fantastic meals, our decorated doors, and the generous gifts we received during Teacher Appreciation Week. Words cannot express how honored and blessed we feel to see your appreciation.
- Thank you to all of the students who came last Sunday to sing in Jr. Choir and play the hand chimes during our Confirmation Service. Thanks, especially, to all of you parents who brought your students to participate.
Costumes for the Spring Musical
Students need to bring their costumes to school by this Wednesday so they can use them during rehearsal. On Friday, they will bring them home after school so that all students can arrive at the theater already dressed in costume by 6:15pm.
Spring Musical Performance
The Spring Musical will be held on Friday May 18th at 6:30pm at UAA Mainstage Theater (Located in the Fine Arts Building, 3700 Alumni Drive). Students will need to be at UAA Theater by 6:15pm. Practicing for the musical has begun. It is imperative that all students are in attendance at the musical. It will last about an hour.
Our next school promotional event is Saturday, May 19th 12:00pm – 4:00pm at Loussac Library. We will have a booth making the same craft we made at Kids’ Day.
Volunteers are needed to help at the booth and with the soccer games in the center area. If there are any teens available, this would be a great opportunity to get involved. It would also show our community how awesome our teens are!!

All accounts should be settled prior to the end of school on May 24th.
Please enroll your student for the 2018/2019 school year if he or she will be returning next year. It’s important that we know who is returning so that we can order curriculum and supplies over the summer.
Boxtops for Education
Do you still have Boxtops for Education lying around in your kitchen drawers at home? Please make sure to bring them in before the last day of classes.
Don’t stop saving them over the summer! We’ll be collecting them again next school year.
God has graciously blessed us with a new Kindergarten teacher. Miss Heidi Kruger has accepted the call to teach at Faith. We look forward to welcoming her into our church and school family.
