We have had amazing feedback and a super start to our LIFT-Learning & Living in Faith Together-Through the Fruits of the Spirit focus.

Here are a couple of comments from parents, “Compliment the staff for the assembly this morning! My boys both have not stopped talking about it this evening. Major props to all that made it engaging and educational!” Another comment “They were both laughing so hard when they were telling us about the video of the teachers doing examples of self control. Another mom sent a message that her daughter had reported, “I got a strawberry today!!!” She said her teacher gave her one for being patient and waiting her turn. She was beaming and clearly couldn’t wait to share with me!

Our Fruit Values tree and bushes are filling up with strawberries that our K-6th grade students earned by being caught following expectations of using great “SELF CONTROL!”

I hope that you have had a chance to view the videos and have the self-control conversations that we sent in last week’s newsletter.

We are also looking for parents/grandparents, etc. that are willing to dress up as our fruits on our assembly days, which are on the last weekday of the month. See attached for dates, further explanation, and to sign up!

God’s blessings to you all — and have a fantastic weekend and cheer on your favorite team!


Worship

It was so inspiring to see this week’s offering for EWALU, thank you for filling those envelopes. Those pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters all add up and we are so excited to see what we can raise this trimester for the EWALU building campaign. Next week our 5th and 6th graders will be spending the week at EWALU, please say some extra prayers for them and for the TEACHERS, as they venture on their three night stay at EWALU!

This week at worship Pastor Mark shared expectations of worship and explained to the students the important areas of the sanctuary. He talked about how fortunate they are as students of St. Paul’s. He shared with them the multiple opportunities they have for praising God from religion in the classroom, prayers multiple times a day, weekly, Thursday morning worship, Saint’s Alive and of course the opportunity for church and Sunday School. How thankful we are to provide the numerous opportunities to grow in their faith. Praise be to God.
