Happy Spring! Think Spring! Happy Spring! Think Spring! Happy Spring!
Song of Solomon 2:11-12 “For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.” I am ready for winter to be over and spring to be here.
Fantastic job by the 5th grade class in reciting the Books of the Old Testament and good job by the 6th graders reciting the Books of the New Testament on March 11th. You did a wonderful job and we are very proud of you!
Mountains of Food! Thank you to all who contributed to March MN Food Share month. The food collected and the students’ offerings for the month of March were presented to the SEMCAC Food Shelf. The preschoolers went shopping!
Palm Sunday was March 25th. P3-5th grade participated in the procession of palms for the 9AM worship service. An egg hunt was held during Sunday school that day. There will not be Sunday school on Easter Sunday, April 1st. Share your Easter celebration memories with your children. Tell them the wonderful and amazing story of the empty tomb and Jesus’ resurrection.
The 4th grade class will be reciting the beatitudes on April 15th and the 1st grade class will be reciting the 23rd Psalm on April 22nd. Letters will be mailed out. Please have children meet in their classroom at 8:45am. Parents, please help them practice at home.
POP TAB TIME– The 4th grade class and teachers will be delivering the pop tabs to the Ronald McDonald House on Sunday, April 22nd. Letter and permission slip will be mailed home. Please keep collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House and leave them in the lower level of the Education wing. We may need parents to drive as this is a large class.
Don’t forget to sign up for Summer Bible camps! Funds are available! Please contact the church office, Pastor Roger, or myself for information.
May baskets will be delivered to GSLH. The confirmation students will assist.
9th grade Confirmation students will be confirmed on Sunday, May 20th as the last confirmation class confirmed by Pastor Roger. Students are currently meeting with their chosen mentors and completing class requirements.
May 13th is Mother’s Day and the final day of Sunday school until September. Stay tuned for more information.
Please start thinking about the next Sunday school year and being a teacher or helper. Without volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to have such a great program here at RLC. There are many churches that no longer have Sunday school because no one wants to dedicate their time as a teacher. Please help our program continue to thrive. Challenge yourself to make the commitment!
If you have any comments or suggestions for our Sunday school program, please contact me or anyone on the Family Education committee. Or, feel free to join our meeting on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 6pm. We are also looking for members that want to join the committee.
