MARYSVILLE, KS, February 15, 2012: Good Shepherd Lutheran School, Marysville, KS, will be celebrating along with other Lutheran schools across the country during National Lutheran Schools Week March 4 through March 10, 2012. The theme is “Securing Each Child’s Future: Equipped.”
As Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, President of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, made reference in the 2012 National Lutheran Schools Week Proclamation, “Whereas, God commanded His ancient people: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You Shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way and when you lie down, and when you rise’ (Deut.6:4-7); and,
Whereas, children are God’s precious gifts to us, and he has placed in our hands the responsibility for their spiritual as well as temporal welfare,….”
Fun activities and events are scheduled throughout the week for the students at Good Shepherd. All-school devotions will open each day of school. Each day will also have a different fun “dress up” day, and a different guessing game will challenge the students throughout the week. Prior to chapel on Wednesday morning, there will be a potluck breakfast at 7:45 a.m. for students, their families, and friends. On Thursday, staff from the Milford, Kansas, Nature Center will visit the school and have a presentation on “Birds of Prey”. The week’s activities will conclude on Friday morning when the students will attend an entertaining movie at the Astro 3 Theater.
The week’s activities conclude with the PTL-sponsored soup dinner on Sunday, March 11, 2012, serving from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The menu includes chili, vegetable, and chicken noodle soup, relishes, home baked bread, and dessert. A free will offering will be taken. The public is invited.
