From the Desk of Pastor Zemke:

 

 Did you know that May is “National Hamburger Month”? I suspect this is because it’s also “National Barbecue Month” as well. Memorial Day comes at the end of May and really marks the beginning of the summer season. For me, a good barbecued hamburger is really hard to beat. Living in the more temperate Portland where barbecuing is a year round prospect, I’ve come to enjoy grilled meat in January, even if it is between rain storms!

            But I need to get back to hamburgers. Hamburgers, good ones anyway, are mostly meat. As far as sandwiches go, it’s probably the most meat centered one out there. So much of a good hamburger relies on what kind of meat you put into it. Of course the bun and condiments are important, but let’s be honest, we’re really only looking at the meat. This fact inspired Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas, a Christian by the way, to run an ad campaign asking “Where’s the Beef?”

             If you go to a restaurant you might notice now that they actually advertise what type of beef, or other meats too, are in the house burger. Some restaurants even go so far as to order custom grinds and combinations of ground meat for their burgers.

            What’s all this have to do with anything other than your pastor’s love of both grilled beef and culinary trivia? Our faith is like a hamburger. No, not greasy and high in cholesterol. Our faith is really all about one thing, Jesus. Oh, there are other parts to our faith, other important things. But at the heart and soul of our faith is Jesus Christ, and him crucified for our sins. If we have all the trappings of personal piety and have not Jesus we’re about as disappointing as an empty bun. Where’s the meat?

            Wimpy is famous for promising to pay Tuesday for a hamburger today. That’s no way to live our lives of faith. We have Jesus yesterday, today, and forever. Let us not allow ourselves to be put off for the sake of easy gratification. Our faith is only about Jesus and we demand, as the Greeks did of Philip, to see Jesus. He is the center of our faith and gives substance to our lives.

             Finally, we need to be full. Full of the gospel, full of good works, and full of the love of Christ Jesus. This is impossible to do on our own. God the Holy Spirit fills our lives with the true meat, the real love of God in Christ Jesus that motivates everything we do. Praise the Lord through your baptism that God has given you every good thing!

Spring Program – “We Honor You”

Our final Preschool/Kindergarten Program was a big success! We had a servant theme with a special emphasis on patriotism, including a “thank you” to all Veterans and Servicemen/women. The children did an awesome job! Thanks to all the staff who worked so hard on preparation for our Spring program!

Mother’s Day Celebrations:

We hold our Mother’s Day Celebrations at special times: 10:00am-11:30am for all classes, except Kam/Kpm will be at 12:00pm-1:30pm. All classes not holding a party, will attend at regular class times. See your teacher if you would like to attend! Parties are: May 2 – 6.

Snow Make-up Days:

Due to inclement weather, both Kindergarten classes will need two Snow Make-up Days.   They will be on May 23 & 24, 9:00am-1:00pm, both classes combined for extra fun!

Welcome Amanda Shaut!

         Amanda will join us as Director on August 22! She is married and the mother of two young children. She comes to us with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences from Central Washington University. Here she focused on multiple courses in Child Development, Family Studies, and Parent Education/Guidance. Her course work and professional background include a wide set of office management skills, administrative roles, and training in Program Management/ Planning, leading her to enjoy managing and working with a team.  She has enjoyed volunteering with VBS and leading multiple youth mentoring programs. She has a heart for Jesus, a love for children and is looking forward to serving this ministry as the new program Director!                                                                    

Parties and Celebrations:          

We have lots of fun on the horizon! Please take note of these important events! If your class has a scheduled party or event, you will not have regular class times, just the scheduled event times. Other classes that are scheduled for school, will have regular class times.        Mother’s Day
