note if you are paying by check make sure it is made out to "Spirit and Pride".
Your conference times (for
PreK-5th grade) to be held on Wednesday, Nov. 6th, will
be sent home on Monday, October 21st.
Conferences for 6th,
7th, and 8th grades run differently. Conferences are Wednesday afternoon, November
6th, from 11:45 p.m. ~ 2:45 p.m. at fifteen-minute intervals. Report cards will be sent home only for 6th,
7th, and 8th grades on Monday, November 4th. Parents, please call the school office if you
want to schedule a conference with Mrs. Ricco, Mr. Peterson, Mr. Stone, or Miss
Bischoff. Mrs. Ferguson will mark the appointment on the teacher's
schedule. You must set up the appointment by 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 5th.
We have a decision
now as to where 1st quarter Chapel Offerings will go-to the
Langevin family who's house burned down just recently in Holyoke. This will be
a wonderful opportunity to help fill a need in the community. Also, if any
family would chose to help out in another way, the family could use gift
cards. Please drop the cards off here in
our school office. Gift cards & Chapel offerings will be collected through Nov.
1st. Miss Bischoff is coordinating this
effort with Jennifer, the manager of Nick's Nest. Make your check, if you're
writing one, payable to First Lutheran School (in the memo-Langevin family),
and it will be added to the Chapel offering total.
Fill the Bus...
22:9 The generous
will themselves be blessed,
for they share their
food with the poor. This
Scripture really speaks to what happens at the Fill the Bus. This year it is on
Saturday, October 26th, from 9a.m.-3p.m. at Stop and Shop on Lincoln
St. in Holyoke. We have missed a year
due to weather. I pray more people get involved by just showing support of this
very important outreach. We need people to help organize the bus, stand at the
door ways, and just be there. We should change the name of this great event to
"God Fills the Bus" because for the last 10 years God has blessed our efforts.
What a joy it is to be a part of this very important event. It is awesome to
witness the human chain we make as we unload the bus. When the bus is empty we
all gather and say a prayer and praise God.
HELP US "FILL THE BUS"
THE NEEDS OF THE HUNGRY IN
WHEN-SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26TH
WHERE-STOP AND SHOP- LINCOLN
TIME-9:00 p.m. TO 3:00 p.m.

Church - Webster's dictionary
defines it as a house consecrated to the worship of God among Christians.
Through Scripture we learn that the church is the body of Christ, which is the
fellowship of all who believe in Jesus. Worship is vital to our faith in Jesus.
It gives peace. It strengthens, and it supplies all that is needful in this
life leading us to a heavenly eternal life with God our Father. Truly, the
church is the body of believers.
It is also a building. We are thankful God has
given us our beautiful building in which to worship Him. If you do not belong
to a church, I invite you to worship with us. I can promise you, that you will
be warmly welcomed by people who are so glad you have chosen to join us. We have two worship services; one at
9 a.m. which is a traditional worship service and another at 11:15 a.m. which
is a blended service. The only difference between the two is that the
traditional uses the great hymns of the church and the blended uses more of a
modern type praise music. Again, if you do not have a church home, prayerfully
consider joining us one Sunday. I would love to see you! Pastor Bessette
