It’s been a big week!
This week, we welcomed Mara McGee as our new Director of Youth and Family Ministry. Mara will work part time (roughly 32 hours / week) to further the ministry that Kyle Jones has faithfully started and managed over the past four years. Kyle will be with All Saints as late as the end of September, helping to orient Mara and ensure a smooth transition for student ministries. We’ll install Mara this Sunday, and I hope that you all have a chance to meet her and welcome her to All Saints!
This week was also teachers’ in-service week for the Children’s Learning Center – All Saints’ preschool – as we prepared to welcome families last night for “Meet the Teacher” night, and to welcome students on Monday for the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. Thus far, the CLC has 94 children enrolled; capacity is between 105 and 110, depending upon how they split into classes. So we give thanks for good, solid enrollment; and we look forward to serving nearly 100 students and their families over the next year. What a gift and privilege from God! This also means that there are still a few spots open, especially in the Pre-K (four year old) classes. So if your children or grandchildren – or a neighbor or friend of yours – needs high quality preschool education in a Christian context with all-day hours, please give us a call!
Finally, next week is the North American Lutheran Church youth symposium, theological conference, mission festival, and convocation in Denver, Colorado. Basically, it’s a full week of learning, fellowship, celebration of ministry, and a little bit of national church business; with pastors, missionaries, and lay persons from like-minded Lutherans around North America and the globe. Please pray for safe travel for those of us attending, and for the leading of the Holy Spirit in all of our endeavors.
Thanks, and may God richly bless you in the weeks to come,
