We are pre-ordering DVD's of the December 17 Christmas program right now. If you pre-order your DVD or Blu-Ray, you should be able to receive it prior to the Christmas break. See Mrs. Kelly or the Wednesday Runner for an order form.
Make plans to attend The Best Christmas Pageant Ever on Tuesday morning December 17th at 8:45 am. Our 2's - 5th grade promise a fun and Christ honoring show. It will be one to remember and we are selling DVD's of the show. The production is being filmed by a professional crew with multiple camera angles.
Exodus 14:13-14: Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still" (NIV).
Trapped against the sea, the Israelites watched in terror as the Egyptians advanced in hot pursuit. Moses alone remained calm and encouraged the people not to be afraid. He challenged them to be still and allow the Lord to ight for them.
As we raise our children, we too will be faced with panic-inducing situations. If we do not have a solid foundation of faith, we may be overcome
with fear and tempted to act rashly. Instead, God asks us to pause and seek his guidance. He reminds us the battle is His. Obviously this requires us to depend on God's wisdom instead of our own. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to be still.
When faced with difficult parenting situations, seek God's guidance before you act. And, let Him work.

Theme for the Year:
Our school-wide theme for the 2013-2014 school year is "By Grace Through Faith." Our school verse for the year is Ephesians 2:8:
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God."
Students, your teachers will help you memorize this verse during the year and we will learn what it means to live a "grace-filled" life.
