Flat Luther has been sent home with the students. Students should decorate, take pictures with him, and send back their favorites. Pictures can be given to your child's teacher. Our goal is 500 pictures for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. We have also sent Flat Luther to all 50 states and around the world! Click here to download a Flat Luther if needed.
Faith Families: Our next Faith Family Day is Wednesday, October 4. During the month of October we will be discussing Stewardship - taking care of what you have because it all belong's to God. The memory verse is Luke 16:10a "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much." (NIV)
In Psalm 24:1, we read, The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, (NIV). In other words, whatever we have isn’t really ours. God created the entire world—the land and sea, planets and galaxies, animals and people. And when people create, those people do so because of the gift and talents that God gave them. It’s our job to take care of what God has loaned us for a time to use in order to bring Him glory.
Jesus put stewardship into action. He used the time He had on earth wisely, never wasting a moment, but always working towards God’s plan. He used what He had—from bread and fish, to dirt and spit—to perform miracles, helping people see and eat. Everything Jesus did showed us how we can take care of God’s stuff by using it the way that points people to God and fulfills the mission God has for our lives.
Parents are encouraged to continue discussion with their student throughout the day or for additional resources click on the following blog or podcast.
