  • St. John’s Lutheran School is blessed with many singing talents from our students. Every year on Christmas Eve, those talents are displayed tremendously! We are glad that many congregational members, family, friends, visitors and community members were able to hear the Gospel message in song on Christmas Eve at St. John’s Lutheran Church. What an amazing gift for our school children to proclaim the true meaning of Christmas...Christ! The faculty and I have heard numerous comments from our parents, church members, and community on the singing abilities of our students. We are so thankful that God’s Word has touched their hearts to proclaim what they have learned.
     
    The students also praise God and spread His Word in many other ways such as caroling at the Care Center and Countryside, performing and showcasing their musical abilities in the springtime play, and enriching church services when they sing as a school group. I would like to give a special thank you to Janet Crabtree, Lori Soloviyov, Laurie Halvorson, Laurie Silfies and Coleen Haag for making music a wonderful part of St. John’s Lutheran School! To God be the glory!
     
    Starting off with 2014!
    Each year, we determine a theme for the coming year. The theme is a reflection of God’s Word and our faith in Him. The theme is our focus for the year in our chapel devotions and our publications. This year is no different. Our theme: Strength, Song, Salvation, summarizes the gifts the Lord gives us. It also expresses our dependence on Him and indicates ways in which we can serve Him.
     
    Our mission reads, in part: “training students for Christian lives on earth and for eternity.” As we educate our students this year, we want them to spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically grow in strength. We pray that our students will undergo their tasks with a spirit of joy and cooperation that equates to a song in their hearts. Finally, each day our teachers stand in front of our students knowing that they spiritually impact our students and have the wonderful opportunity to teach them about Jesus and to apply those truths in their daily lives.
     
    The work that they have to do is vital for the souls of the young people they teach. After all, their salvation is at stake.
