Bazaar Update

Due to the construction project, there will not be a Bazaar at Fredsville Lutheran Church this year. However, the ladies will be selling Danish strips at the December Razzle Dazzle in Dike.

Confirmation Classes Begin!

Confirmation Classes are resuming with a Twist for ALL AGES!

Pastor Lisa is beginning a younger/longer style of confirmation! Confirmation class this year will also include 5th graders as well as 6th, 7th, and 8th! We should have a great sized group to do all kinds of insane things! The first class will be September 10th; we will have a parent’s meeting on September 3rd at 6:30 pm. At that meeting parents will be given a confirmation handbook and the confirmation program will be explained.

Throughout the year pastor will offer one time classes for all youth and their parents at their grade level.

These classes will be:

3rd graders will be given Bibles on Sunday September 14th.

On Wednesday, September 17th all 3rd graders and their parents will meet for a Bible Class.

October 15th Pastor will meet with all preschoolers and their families to talk about Baptism.

November 12th Pastor will meet with all 1st and 2nd graders and their families to talk about Communion.

January 14th Pastor will meet with all 4th graders and their families to talk about the Lord’s Prayer and Prayer.

Letters will be sent to families with more details as each class time approaches.

This is an exciting addition to an already exciting confirmation learning plan! We hope that all of you will pray for the youth of this congregation and their families as they spend time learning together about their church, the Bible, their Savior and God!

A Back to School Prayer

As you head off to school today, this is what we pray for you:
We pray that your day will go smoothly – that your locker will open, that you’ll get
to class on time, that you won’t forget anything, that you’ll find friends in your
classes.
We pray that your teacher will know just how to teach you in a way that you will
love to learn.
We pray that you will make friends who will have your back, make you laugh and
will make you better.
We pray that you’ll have the opportunity to be the light of Jesus to someone.
We pray that you will always be kind, even in the face of conflict.
We pray that you will seek out the new person or the lonely person and help them
find their place.
We pray that you’ll learn to be a leader.
We pray that you will do everything to the best of your ability – even when you
don’t want to.
We pray that you’ll have confidence from knowing you are a child of God.
We pray that if things go wrong, you’ll always remember that God loves you and
so do we.
We pray that you’ll laugh a lot during the day.
We pray that you will follow in Jesus’ footsteps and grow in wisdom.
Most of all, we pray that this year will be filled with learning, growth, joy and fun.
Have a great year!
