The Importance of the Book & Youth News

Posted by Pastor Pete Panitzke on

Check out the Youth News at the end of this email.
Today’s New Testament reading speaks of the wickedness of the last days (find 2 Timothy 3 here). The best protection that we have is the inspired Word of God that “is able to make us wise for salvation” so that we are “thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
The importance of regular use of God’s Word is revealed in our Old Testament reading (find 2 Kings 21-22 here). In the long reign of King Manasseh, the Word of God falls into disuse. By God’s grace, a copy of the Old Testament Scriptures is discovered in the Temple. The Word was preserved and that Word preserved God’s people for another generation.
“Blessed is the one… whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night” (Psalm 1:1-2).

Youth News – PreK Highlights
Our 3K and 4K Pre-Kindergarten joyfully resumed in-person classes for the 2020-2021 school year on Tuesday, September 8. There was definite excitement in the air among the students and teachers finally together after over 5 months! The Pre-K teachers have reported the following positive happenings in their classrooms:

  • “This morning each child was brave enough to say our Bible words all alone. Also, one of them said that they didn't need me to tell them how much time was left in the day (He was happy enough to stay and not worry about going home - hooray!).”
  • “I'm excited that 13 of my 16 students have siblings that have attended, and still attend, our Pre K/School!”
  • “We have had three students add a day to their weekly schedules because they are enjoying school so much. Two in 3K and one in 4K.”
  • “When I was doing the children’s ‘All About Me’ interview sheets, one of the questions was, “What are you most excited about?” Many of the answers were that they were most excited about school, playing with friends, going to gym, and riding the bus! This is wonderful as these are all school related things to be excited about.”

God teaches us in Proverbs 16:9, “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” We have good plans in place at school, and we continue to pray that the Lord keeps our kids here in school, with their classmates and teachers, enjoying classroom laughs and learning, recess, hot lunch, and all the other things that make our Lutheran school a great place to be…because the Joy of Jesus is here!

Youth News – Awake and Alive Event – October 25, 6:30 pm on Zoom
Author Amber Albee Swenson is the featured speaker for our October online gathering. She will be speaking on Change the Narrative.

  • Are you prone to thinking things like, "You're worthless," or "You always mess up?"
  • Do you talk yourself into indulging in things you shouldn't because "you only live once" or "I'm pretty good in the other areas of my life and so and so is much worse, so..."

We're going to talk about common self-talk: the things that routinely go through our minds and learn how we can "change the narrative" so that we're taking every thought captive for Christ.
