Pastor Neumann's NotesFriday, 18 January 2013 20:19
Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church & the Wild Rose Circuit of the LWMS welcomed three Martin Luther College students to Iowa the weekend of April 20-21. Leaving the April snows of New Ulm, Minnesota, they travelled to Des Moines, stopping at Lincoln Heights Lutheran Church to sing for the LWMS Rally on Saturday afternoon. Travelling on to Oskaloosa, Iowa, the students were part of a family Bible study at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church on Satruday evening where they each spoke about their path from grade school to Lutheran Area High Schools and on to MLC. MLC student Jessica Moore than accompanied the people in a hymn sing.
The next morning, the three MLC students supplemented the worship service with a ccapella music, joined the choir for the offeratory selection, and provided instrumental enhancements to the sermon hymn. Afterward, students and MLC recruiter & pastor Ross Stelljes helped with children's Sunday School and lead adult Bible study. We learned much more about the purpose and programs at MLC. We also learned about the new Early Childhood Learning Center and our guests answered many questions from the congregation.
Those students participating from Martin Luther College include from top to bottom. Jessica Moore (who arranged the a ccapella trio songs sung), Derek Rabbers (who played trumpet for the sermon hymn), and Claire Czaplewski (who student taught at NELHS with Grace member Perry Lund). All three MLC students are 5 year students who will be certified to teach elementary and secondary school in their chosen areas which include vocal and instrumental music (Claire & Jessica) and physical science (Derek). God's blessings to them as they graduate and accept their first calls into the public teaching ministry.
Mr. Perry Lund has received a call to serve as high school science and math teacher at Evergreen Lutheran High School near Tacoma, WA. in the Pacific Northwest District. The call came Saturday evening, August 3rd. The call is to teach Biology, Physics and Algebra initially. Evergreen Lutheran has been in exsistence for 35 years and has an enrollment of 120 student this coming year with 10 faculty members. The school is supported by an association of 19 congregations of the ELS and WELS. Evergreen has just moved into a new facility that was purchased from the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and it excited about the potential for growth in the Tacoma - Seattle area.
Shepherd's Study: Pastor mentioned this area of the Wisconin Lutheran Seminary at a recent bible study. Grow in Grace is an institute for continuing education. The site holds reviews of many recent biblical publications. It is intended to support our pastors but we all can look here to find resource reviews written by WELS pastors.
