From Pastor Dave Zemke:


The past several months we’ve been working our way through the various parts of the liturgy and church service. This month we’re going to talk about the creed. We get the word “creed” from the Latin credo which simply means “believe.” At the beginning of the service we confess that we are sinful and receive God’s gift of forgiveness. Here, after the sermon, we confess what we believe. There’s a logic to this that suggest that after hearing God’s word preached we then turn and confess that we believe God to be true.

            We actually have three ecumenical creeds, the Apostles’, the Nicene, and the Athanasian. We usually use the Apostles’ creed on non-communion Sundays as well as on baptismal Sundays. The Apostles’ creed is a very early baptismal creed coming out of Rome in the late first century or early second century. This is the creed we know and love from Luther’s Small Catechism. You may notice that the second article of the Apostles’ creed is shorter than the Nicene creed. This is because the Apostles’ creed was written before two specific heresies about Jesus began to spread so the writers didn’t need to address them.

            The Nicene creed was started at the council of Nicea in 325. It was actually finished at the council of Constantinople in 359. The creed is longer than the Apostles’ creed because the second article shuts the theological door on Nestorianism and Arianism. These two heresies hold that Jesus is only God some of the time or that God created Jesus rather than begot him. That’s why you hear that “very God of very God” and “begotten not made” language in the second article.

            The Athanasian creed was written in honor of Athanasius rather than by him. This longest of our creeds tries to finally settle how we speak about the trinity. The important theological point to take away from this creed is that we don’t separate the trinity and we don’t worship one person more than another.

            We don’t actually have to leave the creed in the church. The creed is designed to give you an overview of the Christian faith. What, at the very most basic, do we believe? Are there lots of theological things that aren’t covered in the creed? Absolutely! But if all you have is the creed then you absolutely have enough information to understand Christianity.

So what can we do with this? For one thing, the creed is great for evangelism! If you want to tell people exactly what they need to believe, there’s the creed. If you want to give a short explanation, there’s the Apostles’ creed. If you want to give a longer, more detailed explanation, there are two more. Sometimes we don’t know where to start when we talk about our faith. As Lutherans who are creedal people, we have a great place to start.

The creed also a very short report on what the Bible actually tells us. The Bible is about God and His creative action, Christ and His saving action, and the Holy Spirit and His birth and growth of the Church. Using the creed as a map or guide while reading the Bible is central to our understanding of who God is and what His plan for us is. The creed helps keep us from getting the idea that the Bible is a science book or an end times manual.

Finally, the creed is a great way to shore up your faith. We daily are assaulted by both the devil and our culture who both try to tell us who we could be or what we should believe. Instead of answering their call, we can find ourselves in the creed and know what God has done for us and promises to do for us in the future.

From the Preschool:

Diane Bradseth, Director  

 

October flew by!

October was a busy month, with lots of fun and learning!  We had a visit from the PSK Photographer and a BG Police Officer, which brought out lots of smiles!  We have made many fall projects and some are posted for you to enjoy!  We will end the month with our annual Fall Harvest Parties.  These are always memorable events for the families and staff, alike!

Come One, Come All!

Our Fall Program was a big hit!  Many thanks to all of you who attended.  The children did a wonderful job!  Our next program is on December 15 @ 3:00pm.  It will be our Christmas Program.  Watch for more details!  

Say “Cheese”

Our Photographer, Robyn Garner, was here in  October.  She has a wonderful way of bringing out darling smiles in all of the children.  You should have received an email of your child’s proofs.  If you did not, please let me know!  

Auto Deduction:

Are you interested in having your tuition automatically paid from your account to ours?  If so, we have a program available to you.  If you are interested, please see me or pick up a flyer on the table outside my office.

Drive on In:

November is our Food Drive month.  From November 4 – 25, we will be collecting food for the North County Community Food Bank.  Please see your child’s teacher for more details on collection dates and ways to “earn” their food donations.

Walk the Talk:

We held our annual Walk-a-Thon at the end of September here in our Preschool/Kindergarten Playground.  The children had a wonderful time!  This is one of our two fundraisers for the school and helps to keep our tuitions low.  If you haven’t already, please turn in your pledges as soon as possible!  Thank you for your participation in this fun event/fundraiser!  

Hup, Two, Three, Four!

To keep our staff and students prepared for a possible emergency, we have monthly drills at the Preschool/Kindergarten.  These drills include Fire Drills, Earthquake/Storm Drills, and Lock-Down Drills.  We plan to hold six drills during the year.  In October, we held our first Earthquake/Storm Drills and we will be holding a Lock-Down Drill in November.

Thanksgiving Feasts are coming!

In celebration of Thanksgiving, each class will have a Thanksgiving Feast.  These fun events are held during regular class time.  Your child’s teacher will be letting you know what things are needed for your class party.  Here are the dates for these parties:

Nov. 22: Toddler Class

Nov. 25: MW3; MWFam/pm

Nov. 26: TTh3; TTh4; K

Going Once, Going Twice, Sold!

It’s time to begin planning for our annual Preschool/Kindergarten Auction!  It will be held on March14.  This is a large event that requires lots of parent help!  We will hold our next planning meeting on Nov. 20 @ 2:45-3:45pm.  Please come and share your ideas and talents for this fun event!

Policy Reminder:

Each month I will restate a policy or 

policies from our Parent Handbook, as needed.  These are issues that either have come up during the previous month or have importance for this particular month.

Illness:

If your child is showing any of the following symptoms of cold, flu, or any other communicable disease, please keep him/her home and inform the school:

1)Fever over 99.5*F

2)Frequent “wet” sneezing and/or coughing; thick or green nose drainage

3)Accompanying severe aches and pains

4)Nausea

5)Head Lice

6)Family member with serious communicable disease

Weather Policy:

We follow the Battle Ground School District’s inclement weather policies and procedures.  To reach their weather hotline, call: 885-5343 or go to their website: battlegroundps.org.  

If BGPS has no school, we won’t either.  If they have a one, two or three hour late start for any part of the district, we will cancel all of our classes.  If any of their preschool and/or kindergarten classes are cancelled, ours are cancelled as well.

Church Mouse Bazaar

Friday Nov 8th 1-7 PM

Saturday Nov 9th 9 AM- 3 PM

 

We will have volunteer signup sheets coming out soon at Women's Ministry nights and after church! We need lots of volunteers to make this a success without burning out the volunteers! 

Most urgent need is a raffle coordinator 

(request and coordinate people bringing in donations for raffle, get raffle baskets put together with help of volunteers, be the go to person with questions about the raffle, etc).  Easier than it sounds!

Watch for more info in the months to come!

**********************

church mouse 2019

*********************

 

Church Mouse Bazaar is coming upon us quickly!  Here are a few asks: 

 

**We are in need of plastic and paper bags for checkout, as well as tissue paper and newspaper for wrapping fragile items. Recycled tissue paper is great, for those who don't toss it right away! If you have any to spare, please put it on the wood counter outside the preschool room, our designated collection spot for all things bazaar related ( including raffle items that we need more of).

 

**We need more donated raffle items!

 

**We also are in need of more volunteer bakers... The community LOVES our home baked goods! Sweet Shoppe gets empty quickly, especially when the volunteer sheets are half empty! 

 

**There are still slots open on the signup sheets! If you are available for "whatever is open", just put your name down in one of the slots so we know where we are at for staffing the event! It really is a fun event... especially when we have lots of volunteers. Food/snacks will be provided. 

 

**If anyone is interested in seeing what all is involved with being the chairperson of the bazaar, let me know. I'll be stepping down after this season, but will be willing to help out the next chair big time!

*************************************************

Here is a shout out from the Parish Activities team!
Advent soup suppers will be started after some years of absence. Signups for at least one crockpot of soup, rolls, 

and salad for Dec 4th, 11th, and 18th will be put out soon. Start time to be determined.  Will also need help with cleanup these evenings. Let me know if you are interested 

in helping out!

Christmas church decorating party will be scheduled for likely sometime in the first week of December. Keep eyes/ears open for specifics.  We are always looking for more members for our board! Contact Elyssa Morris if you want to join in the fun, fellowship, and get that nice feeling that volunteering brings!
