Why Are Fire Trucks Red?
Have you ever wondered that? Well someone once gave the following explanation as an answer to that question: Fire trucks have four wheels and carry eight people. Four plus eight equals twelve. There are twelves inches in a foot, and a foot is a ruler. Queen Elizabeth is a ruler and one of the largest ships on the sea. The sea has fish in it, and fish have fins. The Finns fought the Russians once, and Russians are red. Fire trucks are always rushin’, and therefore fire trucks are red!
Obviously, this is a silly answer. However, this explanation is no more far-fetched than some of the excuses people give for not believing in Jesus as their Savior, or for not coming to church. Even sillier will be some of the excuses Jesus will hear when He returns as judge of all.
Jesus is coming back, that is His promise to us recorded in His Word. No one knows when that will be but we, His children, have nothing to fear in His return because He has made us ready through His death and resurrection. He bought us with His holy precious blood and His innocent suffering and death. Through the work of the Holy Spirit He made us His own dear children. As His dear children, we don’t have to be afraid, or think up some silly excuses when Jesus comes again. We can look for His return with joy and expectation in our hearts! “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Phil. 4:4.
Most of you probably saw the police officers when you arrived at school this morning. The kindergarten room was broken into sometime Sunday night. One of the windows was broken and there were a few
things taken but, most importantly, nobody was hurt. Classes will continue to operate normally. If you have any further concerns, please speak with your student’s teacher.
Children’s Christmas Service
I would like to extend a big thank you to all who helped in preparing the Children’s Christmas Service for Friday night. A special thanks to Ted Kohlstedt, Fred Koenig, and Trevor Zarnstorff for transporting, setting up, and taking down the stage. Also, thank you to the teachers who put in so much time teaching the songs and recitations, along with setting up and taking down, and Miss Mittelstadt for producing the Power Point and folder for the service. Finally, I would like to thank all of the children who shared the glorious Gospel message with us! Mr. Z.
Performing at the Dimond Center
K-8 students will be singing and playing hand chimes at the Dimond Center tomorrow, December 19th at 1:30pm.
We need all drivers to be here at 1:00pm for a 1:15pm departure. We will return to school at 2:45pm.
We invite you to join us during our last Advent worship service on December 20th at 3:00pm to close out the school day. This service will last a little more than half an hour. Students will be dismissed for the day at the end of the service. Please pick up your students through the main church entrance instead of the school entrance.
Do you have an ugly Christmas sweater? How about a pair of leggings with pictures of the Grinch? We’d like to see your favorite Christmas-themed outfit on Thursday. No favorite holiday wear? That’s ok, wear your uniform.
Early Dismissal and Christmas Break
School will dismiss and Christmas Break begins at noon Thursday, December 21st. There will be no aftercare. We’ll see you on January 8th when school resumes. We wish you and your families a very blessed Christmas and New Year.
