Parent Connection April 16

Judgment Day?
          That’s what some people call April 15. Others will recognize it as Tax Day, the day that Americans are required to have their taxes for the previous year figured out, filed, and paid. At the very least, you have to have your taxes paid even though you may have filed for an extension to file the paperwork. Some people like to get their taxes taken care of as soon as possible in January, others try to put it off as long as possible. Sooner or later we all have to pay our fair share.
          But “Judgment Day”? Is there any comparison between tax day and the end of the world? I’m certain that some people have gotten away for years without paying their taxes, or they may have found loopholes to get around paying them. No one will escape the judgment that will take place when their existence here on earth ends. When a person leaves this world, their soul will be judged and their time in heaven or hell will begin. Then on the day when Jesus returns ‘to judge the living and the dead’, the souls and bodies of those who have died previously will be reunited and the judgment that has already taken place will be revealed to all. At stake here is not money to pay the government but your eternal future. Jesus said, “What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his own soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matthew 16:26.

Parent Connection April 9

You Should Have Been Here!
          Have you ever had an experience where you missed out on something because you were in the wrong place at the right time? Maybe it was a party that you missed because you were sick. Maybe it was the big game against your arch rival, and your team won at the last second. Maybe it was a night out at a local establishment where a celebrity showed up and sat in with the local band for a few fantastic songs. You should have been here! It was a night to remember, the night of a lifetime! Do you feel left out? Do you feel like your friends are just “yanking your chain” by making up stories?
          I wonder if the disciple, Thomas, had some of these same feelings?  We have no idea where Thomas was that first Easter evening but we know that he missed out on something truly exciting, something that truly changed the lives of those who witnessed it. When Thomas came back and heard that Jesus had appeared to the rest of disciples, he demanded proof before he would believe. One week later, Jesus gave Thomas exactly what he had demanded: undeniable truth. He invited Thomas to put his fingers into the nail holes in His hands, to reach out and place his hand into the spear hole in His side. With this proof, we are told that Thomas believed.
          Sometimes we may wish that we could have been there, too. With Thomas, we would like to have tangible proof for what we believe. Jesus tells us, “Blessed are they who have not seen and yet have believed.”  He is talking about us! We have been blessed with faith to trust in Jesus as our Savior. That is truly a blessing for which to be thankful!

Alaska Spelling and Geography Bees
          Emma Robbert represented Faith at the Alaska State Spelling Bee on Mar. 29th and at the Geography Bee on Apr. 6th.  Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into preparing.  Congratulations on a job well done!!

Indoor Soccer Practice
There is soccer practice on Tuesday and Thursday this week.  The games on Wednesday start at 4:00pm vs. Lumen Christi and 5:00pm vs. Holy Rosary
Saturday’s tournament times have not yet been announced.  Players will be given more information when we have it.

PTF Meeting Rescheduled
          Due to the soccer games this Wednesday night, the PTF meeting has been moved to Wednesday, April 18th at 6pm.

Spirit Week         
          Let’s show our Huskies soccer team support for their tournament this weekend.  Starting tomorrow, we are wearing different outfits each day (unless you’d rather just wear your plain, old uniform!)
          Tuesday:  Wear a tie day
          Wednesday:  Crazy hair day
          Thursday:  Wear your class color day
                             Preschool:  Blue
                             Kindergarten:  Red
                             Grades 1-4:  Green
                               Grades 5-8:  Black
Friday:  Wear school colors teal & gold

Parent’s Night Out
          Herbie the Love Bug Night – Friday, April 20th, 6:00-9:00pm.  Parents can drop off their preschool (potty-trained, please) through 8th graders for a night out.  Free-will donations will be accepted.
More details will be available next week. 

Kids’ Day at the Dena’ina
          Faith Lutheran School will be hosting a booth at Kids’ Day on April 21st.  The event runs 10:00am – 4:00pm and highlights programs for children in Anchorage.  We will need volunteers to help throughout the day. Please let Mrs. Z know if you can volunteer for an hour or two to help with crafts at Faith’s Booth.

PTF Needs Parents
It is time to get involved with your child’s school.  Over the past few years, parent participation in our school and PTF has declined.  PTF is a great way to support your child and our school with activities such as hot lunch, parent’s night out, Trunk or Treat, and also to provide our school with needed equipment through fundraisers.  The best way to start would be by attending our next PTF meeting on Wednesday, April 18th.  The agenda for this meeting includes the upcoming Parent’s Night Out, Teacher Appreciation Week, Parking Lot Sale, School Picnic, and most importantly election of officers. 
For the coming school year, we need parents to volunteer for the positions of president, vice-president, and secretary.  If you are interested in supporting our school this way, please contact Sheila Lillo at 907-229-7901.  I would be happy to discuss what the duties are and how much time they really take.  None of the officer positions consume too much time, and all have been held by parents with full-time jobs.  This is a great opportunity to be involved in your child’s life.

Pennies for Patients Amount Collected
          Woo-hoo!!  All of your donations have been counted, and here are the totals:
          Grades 1-4:            $177.47
          Grades 5-8:           $172.11
          Preschool:              $122.75
          Kindergarten:         $101.83
Thank you for everyone’s participation. Together, we are able to send $574.16 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to benefit patients who have been diagnosed with a blood cancer. 

Open Enrollment
Enrollment for the 2018/2019 school year is now open.  Please enroll your student if            he or she will be returning next year so we can begin preparing for next school       
year. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to stop by, email, or call the office 
563-3499.

Parent Connection April 3

Fear…..Not!
Put yourself in their place for a moment, wouldn’t you have been filled with fear? You had been with Him for three years. You had been called by Him to travel and see and learn. As you walked the dusty trails of Palestine, you witnessed many of those miracles that awed the people of Palestine. You saw the water changed to wine, you saw sick people healed from all kinds of terrible ailments. You saw blind people become able to see, you witnessed lame people stand up and walk. You saw dead people brought back to life. These, and many other ‘proofs’, convinced you that this Jesus was no ordinary man.  He was the Promised One of the Lord, Messiah.
  Then came the unthinkable! Jesus was betrayed by one of your own, Judas. Jesus allowed himself to be taken captive by His enemies. He was brought before an illegal court at the High Priest’s house and condemned as a blasphemer because He claimed to be God. Why didn’t He use that power that you had witnessed in Him so many times?  It was all so confusing and yet He had warned each of you about us all running away in fear.
We stood by silently as He was taken to Pilate and condemned to death. Some of us were ‘strong enough’ to watch in the crowd as He was crucified. But did any of us help carry His body to the tomb? Did any of us rest peacefully that Saturday evening behind those locked doors? Didn’t we fear every strange noise in the streets? Didn’t we listen for the footsteps of the soldiers we knew were going to come for us next?
Talk about fear and confusion! Even as He miraculously stood among us, our first thoughts were ones of fear, we thought we were seeing a ghost! ‘Peace be with you!’ Oh,
what precious words those were to us! Fear….Not! There would be nothing to fear for the rest of our lives. He has conquered all our fears! He has crushed all our enemies! He has risen!

Indoor Soccer Practice
         Soccer practice continues on Tuesday and Thursday this week.  We still do not have dates or times but there are games tentatively scheduled for Wednesday and Friday. 

Pennies for Patients
The last day to collect donations for our Pennies for Patients fundraiser is Wednesday, April 4th.  Please bring your boxes on Wednesday.

Classroom Filming
On Thursday, April 5th, we will have a film crew here taking video in each of the classrooms for our upcoming advertisement campaign.
Except for preschoolers, students are still required to wear their uniforms.

Jr. Choir Sings
Junior choir will be singing this Sunday, April 8th, at Shephard of the Hills during the 10:30 am services.  Please be there by 10:10am.
If you need a ride to the church, please speak with Mrs. Gillespie 907-793-7030.

The Resurrection
          This is Holy Week. We don’t call it Holy Week because it is better or more perfect than any other week. We call it Holy Week because of the holiness of our Savior and what He did for us during this week some 2,000 years ago.
          Our celebration of Holy Week began yesterday with our remembrance of Jesus’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem. The people welcomed Jesus as the Messiah, the One promised to save them. Many of them had the wrong idea about this Messiah and from what He would save them. They thought He would rid them of the hated Roman rule. He really came to save them and all people from their sins and their slavery to Satan.
          Later in that week, Jesus instituted the Sacrament of Holy Communion, that Holy Supper where He gives us His body and blood in, with, and under the bread and wine as a concrete evidence of the forgiveness of sins that is offered to us in the Sacrament.
          He purchased this forgiveness of sins for us by offering His life blood on the altar of the cross, once for all. His life was the payment, the only possible payment, precious enough to cancel out the guilt of the sins of the whole world. When Jesus cried out, “It is finished!” He meant that the payment for all sins was complete. Then he gave up his life willingly.
          Then came the event that is above all the others. If this event never happened, all of the other events would have been rendered utterly useless. Paul tells the Corinthians in chapter 15 of his first letter to them, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.” We are pleased to celebrate Christ’s resurrection because our salvation is certain since Christ was raised from the dead. God placed His stamp of approval on Jesus’ work by raising Him from the dead.
No School
          There is no school or preschool on Friday, March 30th (Good Friday) and Monday, April 2nd for the Easter holiday. Classes resume on Tuesday, April 3rd.

Indoor Soccer Practice
We will only have soccer practice on Tuesday this week due to Maundy Thursday services on Thursday. 
Tentatively, there is a game scheduled for Wednesday at Lumen Christi.  As soon as we have more details we will let you know.

Hand Chime Choir
          We will play for chapel on Thursday.

Easter Celebrations
          Our family here at Faith Lutheran Church would be honored if you would join us this week to celebrate Easter. 
          Maundy Thursday: 6:30pm March 29
Good Friday: 6:30pm March 30
Easter Day: Early worship service begins at 8:00am.  Breakfast will be served between 9:00-10:15am.  At 9:15am, we will sing hymns chosen by the congregation.  At 10:30am, we will have a final worship service.
We look forward to seeing you!

Thoughts of Spring
          I don’t know about you, but the weather is starting to get to me. This morning I woke up from dreaming about some springtime activities. It is way too early to be thinking about planting the garden and mowing the lawn. It may not be too early to think about fishing, but just because the temperature has been above freezing and the snow piles are starting to yield their hold on the parking area, it doesn’t mean that it is spring. Even though the calendar says that tomorrow is the first day of spring, from experience, I can assure you that you should look for a few more weeks of winter weather (like about six more). I don’t want anyone to be disappointed when the flakes continue to fall.
          Thoughts of springtime do bring to mind a hope that each of us has, one that will never be a disappointment. Springtime is a time of new life, and reminds us of the new life that is ours as a blessing of the faith we have been given. We experience this new life as we make our way through our daily activities even though we may face trials and troubles of many kinds. We will experience this new life fully when our Savior returns to take us to our eternal home. This new life can never disappoint us!

Indoor Soccer Practice
Soccer practice for grades 5-8 starts again this week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at APU from 4:00-5:30pm.  Games will be played Friday, March 23rd, between 4:00 – 8:00pm but exact times will be announced later this week.

Sometimes the Best-Laid Plans…
          For Bible class yesterday, Pastor Ewings asked us to think of the most encouraging passage from Scriptures. There are so many good passages to pick from so it’s hard to choose. Later in the class, I thought of another comforting passage.
          It comes from the book of Jeremiah who wrote to the people of Judah about the coming destruction of Jerusalem and the captivity in Babylon. This judgment was coming on them because of their unfaithfulness to their God. They were turning to other gods so this punishment was deserved. But even in the declaration of the judgment headed their way, God holds out hope for those who belonged to Him. He tells them that their captivity would be seventy years and then He would bring them back to the land promised to the Patriarchs.
          Then the Prophet writes these encouraging words to the exiles, and us:  “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” Jeremiah 29:11.
What greater comfort and encouragement could there be for us, God has plans for us. He is not finished with us. He will never abandon us, he has a future for us, a hope we can always look forward to, even if our eyesight might be blurred by tears. He has promised to wipe away all of our tears, and calm our fears. His are the “best-laid plans” and his plans can never fail.

Parent Connection February 26

Piles and Piles and Piles
          As I look out my window this morning, I see some more of the white stuff falling from the sky. Last night, it was drifting slowly to the ground and this morning it is being driven by the strong winds. When I arrived this morning, Mrs. Gillespie and Mrs. Z were just finishing off the task of shoveling what had fallen during the night. By the looks of it at recess time, there will be more shoveling to be done. Even after it stops snowing, there will be more shoveling to be done. Sometimes it is frustrating because, just after you finish shoveling, the sidewalk cleaner or the grader comes past and provides another pile of snow to move out of the way.
          In much the same way, when we look over our lives, we see piles and piles and piles of sin. We daily keep adding to those piles. The sad thing is that there is nothing we can do to move those piles. We may try to hide those piles, or ignore those piles, but they are evident to all.  If we convince ourselves that everything is just fine, Satan will come along with his grader to make those piles ever more evident, putting them right in front of your face. It is hopeless to try to deal with your heap of sin and shame by yourself.
          Thanks be to God for He has removed our guilt by paying the price for our sins! Jesus gave up His throne in heaven, came to earth, and lived His life in full obedience to God’s law. He was completely innocent of any wrongdoing but God the Father put all of our guilt on His Son and punished Him in our place. As He died for us, He declared that our debt had been “paid in full”!  On Easter morning, God raised His Son from the grave as His stamp of approval on all that Jesus had done.
          Now when we are troubled by sin, or when Satan tries to raise those piles in front
 of us, we can turn to our Savior and know that the piles are gone, never to bother us again.  With St. Paul, we can “Forget[ting] what is behind and strain[ing] toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13b-14.

Chicken Dinner
          A big Thank You to all who contributed to support our school!  With your help, we were able to raise over $800.

YMCA Visits
          Grades K-8 will be going to the YMCA again tomorrow, Tuesday, February 27th.  Have you noticed your child sleeping better on Tuesday nights after all of that exercise??
          Our last trip will be next Tuesday, March 6th.  TADS accounts will be billed after this visit.

Indoor Soccer Practice
Soccer practice for grades 5-8 begins next Tuesday, March 6th, at APU, 4:00-5:30pm.  Practices will continue every Tuesday and Thursday.  Games will be announced as soon as they are scheduled.

Midweek Lenten Services
We are continuing our Wednesday Lenten Services this week.  Parents are encouraged to join their Faith Lutheran School students at 3:00pm to hear about “Jesus, Our Great High Priest.”  This service will last a little more than half an hour.  Students will be dismissed for the day at the end of the service.

Hand Chimes Choir
          We will play one song during the 3:00pm Lenten service.

Health Fair
          Faith Lutheran Church and School is sponsoring a Health Fair Saturday, March 3rd from 8:00am-12:00pm to bring free health education, health screenings, and affordable blood tests to our community.  Alaska Health Fair Inc. will provide the majority of materials, supplies, medical volunteers, and other support but we need volunteers to help set up and take down, to help during the fair, and to donate food.  Setup begins on Friday afternoon, March 2nd.  A list of food items needed and a signup sheet is posted in the Fellowship Hall or you can sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/904054ba5a72ba57-101516.  Contact Gabby gby279@yahoo.com for more information.
